Bahn Mi Burger

Who needs a break from Thanksgiving recipes? Raise your hand. Any hands raised? I know mine aren't, but I assume that your pinterest is flooded with turkey tips, side dishes, pies, and more, so why not mix it up a little just before the big day! We all need to eat in preparation for the "big meal", so I chose something hearty like this burger. I recently made these burgers for Andrew since I know what a huge fan he is of the classic Bahn Mi flavor, but I wanted to give it a little twist (surprised, aren't you? Sense the sarcasm here). I took the traditional carrot, cucumber, and cilantro toppings and placed them atop a juicy burger, complete with Sriracha mayo, because what Bahn Mi is complete without a big old spoonful of that deliciousness?  

Bahn Mi Burger

Makes 4 Burgers
  • 2 lbs. 85/15 ground beef
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 burger buns, split
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1-2 tbsp. Sriracha hot sauce
In a small bowl, sprinkle the sugar and pour the vinegar over the shredded carrots. Place in the fridge. In another small bowl, whisk together the mayo and Sriracha and place in the fridge.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat, and in a medium bowl, mix together the beef, chili powder, mustard powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Form the beef mixture into 4 large burger patties. Cook the patties, for 4 minutes on each side, for medium. During the last minute of grilling, place the buns, cut-side down on the flameless side of the grill, just to get a little crisp.

Slather the prepared Sriracha mayo on one half of all of the buns. Place the burger patties on top, then garnish with the carrots, cucumbers, and fresh cilantro. Serve hot.
