If you have plans to grill soon, elevate your next meal with these tangy, juicy, oh so fresh Asian Burgers.
🌟 What makes these Asian burgers so amazing
These Asian-style burgers are super juicy and tender. And the flavors are a nice, refreshing change from traditional burgers. Here are three great reasons to love them!
- Asian flavors: I mix in traditional Asian flavors like soy sauce, sesame oil, and ginger to take these burgers to the next level.
- Quick: These burgers come together in just 20 minutes from start to finish!
- Great for bbq parties: Make these in batches and throw them on the grill. They're perfect for outdoor get togethers!
🛒 Ingredients for Asian-style beef burgers
To make these burgers, you'll need:
Ground beef: I use leaner beef but with still some fat content for flavor, such as a 80% lean meat and 20% fat mix.
Soy Sauce - this is a classic for many of the Asian recipes you'll find on this site. I often use coconut aminos as a gluten-free substitute.
Toasted Sesame Oil - this gives the burgers just a hint of smoky flavoring and helps enhance the soy sauce flavors.
Garlic - a staple in almost every savory dish I make, this is especially important in the Asian recipes I make. Feel free to use more or less garlic, depending on your tastebuds.
Ginger - another Asian cooking staple, ginger gives these burgers a beautiful zing and just a hint of spice.
Green Onions - be sure to slice these very thinly. They are meant to add a little bit of freshness and herbaceousness to the burgers.
✅ Step-by-step instructions
- Mix together all of the ingredients in a large bowl.
- Form 4 large burger patties.
3. Grill over high heat (450°F) for a total of 10 minutes (5 minutes on each side). 4. Remove from the grill and serve immediately.
For summertime, when it's hot and humid, I prefer to skip the melty cheese and piled-on cooked toppings. Instead, I prefer a fresh, crisp summer slaw with corn, tomatoes, and peaches.
Absolutely! You can can a 90/10 beef to fat ratio if you prefer. Just remember, the higher the fat content, the juicier the burgers tend to be.
🍽 What to serve with these burgers
Grill up some corn on the cob at the same time the burgers are grilling and slice up some watermelon for an instant outdoor summer feast!
🍷 What wine pairs well with Asian burgers?
Riesling is a light wine wine with lively acidity that traditionally pairs well with many Asian flavors. This Dr. Loosen 2018 Blue Slate Riesling Kabinett is almost effervescent, with aromatic citrus and honeysuckle. It brings out the beautiful medley of garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and sesame oil in the burgers.
