What is a perfect burger? To me, the perfect burger is the one that I'll enjoy having and would want more of. The perfect burger is the burger that has a mild flavor of spices, something like this Asian Beef Burger.
More on Asian Beef Burger.
When it comes to meat, I never take risk, I always cook it thoroughly. Not having anything against who likes it rare and medium rare of course!
I played around with few burger recipes and found out that it can lead to a new and great tasting burger.
My Asian Beef Burger is moist and full of balanced flavors. I like to have it with mashed potato, but it will taste great with noodles on the side too.
*The calories calculated do not include the mashed potato and caramelized onion shown in the pictures.
- 400 gm ground beef
- ¼ cup chopped spring onion
- 2 teaspoon soy sauce
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- ⅓ teaspoon ginger powder
- In a bowl, mix all the ingredients except the beef.
- Add the beef and mix well, but don't over mix or the burger will be tough.
- Make 3 equal patties, make an indent with your thump in the middle of each patty, this will make it cook evenly and will keep its shape.
- Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
- Heat your pan/grill, if the pan is hot enough the patties will not stick. I used non stick pan.
- Cook for 5 minutes on each side. (This really depends on you, if you like it medium rare cook for 3 minutes on each side).
