Thai Pork and Beef Burgers + Video
These pork and beef burgers have Thai flavors, chiles and spicy peanut sauce. Make this spicy burger recipe on an outdoor or indoor grill.
- 1 lb lean ground beef (80/20)
- 1 lb ground pork
- 3 jalapeños diced
- ¼ cup hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoon lemongrass paste
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- ½ cup cheddar cheese shredded (optional)
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon white pepper
- 4 hamburger buns (I use brioche)
- ⅓ cup peanut butter chunky or smooth
- 2 tablespoon Sambal Oelek or other hot chile paste
- 2 teaspoon soy sauce or tamari sauce
- cilantro leaves
- fresh jalapeños sliced into rings
Slice 1 jalapeno into rings and set aside for garnish. Cut and remove the seeds from remaining 2 jalapeños and chop ¼-inch dice.
In a bowl mix together the ground beef, pork, jalapeños, hoisin sauce, lemongrass, garlic (cheddar cheese) and salt and white pepper. Form into patties.
Grill to your liking, I cook first side for 3 minutes on high, then lower heat to medium and flip to cook for 4 more minutes. Flip again and finish with 2-3 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine peanut butter, chili paste and soy sauce. Set aside.
Toast the bread or bun of choice and spread equal amounts of peanut sauce on both top and bottom cut side of bun. Top with grilled burger and cilantro leaves and jalapeno rings (optional).
