Asian Turkey Burger

This burger comes from Serious Eats. There is a Sriracha mayo (seen on bottom bun) that goes with this. The recipe will be on the Recipe Codex tomorrow. 

1 1/2 lbs ground turkey, 85% lean
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 scallions, finely chopped
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Bibb lettuce
1 tomato, cut into 1/4-inch slices
Hamburger buns

  1. Mix together all of the ingredients for the burgers in a large bowl until just fully incorporated. 
  2. Scoop out about 1/3 lb of the mixture and form into a patty. 
  3. Repeat with the remaining meat mixture until all used. 
  4. Grill on direct flame over medium-high heat or pan fry over medium-high heat.
    1. If you grill, get them well-browned on each side, about 5-7 minutes each.
    2. If you pan-fry, use a cast-iron. Heat the cast-iron, then add oil and heat the oil. Once the oil is hot, add the burgers. Let sit initially for 5 minutes or so. Do not burn.
    3. Either method, cook until internal temperature is 165 F.
  5. Put on grilled bun with lettuce and tomato and other condiments.

  • Makes about 5 patties.
  • Pan frying gives a really nice crust and is the way to go.
