Pork Burgers Asian Style
from Cooking with the 60-Minute Gourmet , page 138
One of our family favorites, the ginger, cilantro, soy sauce and garlic give these burgers an Asian flair.
INGREDIENTS1 ½ pounds lean ground pork
½ cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
½ cup fresh bread crumbs
¼ cup fresh or canned chicken broth
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
¼ teaspoon Tabasco
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
½ cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter
PREPARATION1. Place the pork in a mixing bowl and add the onion, 2 tablespoons of the cilantro, ginger, 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce, garlic, bread crumbs, broth, salt, pepper, and Tabasco. Blend well.
2. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and form them into hamburger shapes about 1 inch thick. Heat the oil in a large pan (cast iron is best) over medium heat. Add the burgers and cook for 7 to 8 minutes. Turn burgers and cook 8 minutes or until done. Transfer them to a serving plate and keep warm.
3. In a small saucepan, combine the orange and lemon juices and remaining soy sauce. Reduce by half. Add butter and remaining cilantro. Blend well and pour over burgers.
