Living over 10 miles from the nearest full-size grocery store, a quick trip to the store is not an option. So I often devise recipes made with ingredients on hand to save a trip to town. Such was the case with this recipe.
It received 5 out of 5 stars at my house! (I love when that happens.)
I had made some of the One Hour Sandwich Buns, mini-size and sprinkled with black sesame seeds, intending to create some kind of an Asian-Style burger with what I had in the pantry and fridge.
I had some lean ground pork on hand and seasoned it with the following ingredients :
(Substitute lean ground chicken or turkey for the pork if you like)
Finely diced Granny Smith apple
Lemon juice & zest
Finely grated fresh ginger
Hot Chili Sauce
Mixed together, formed into mini-burgers, then chilled the patties thoroughly before cooking.
The sandwich spread is simply mayonnaise blended with Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce to taste.
While the burgers were cooking, I finely shredded cabbage and mixed with a little Sweet Chili Sauce (from the bottle), then added minced cilantro and scallions.
I topped with chopped cashews ~ but peanuts could be substituted if you like.
At the table I offered additional cilantro leaves, Sriracha, Sweet Chili Sauce, and dark, flavorful Sesame Oil to drizzle if any one wanted extra condiments.
They were absolutely delicious, and I will make them again for sure.
I am pleased to share the recipe with you ~ It is available on my recipe blog ... HERE. If you try them, I hope you love them too.
