Patty Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil
  • 4 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 Green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp sriracha
  • 1 tbsp sugar

Instructions for the Pork Banh Mi Burger

  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients for pork meat patties until fully combine and separate into 4 equal parts. Using your hands, carefully form each patty until even in thickness all the way around is achieved and set aside. You want it about ⅓” thick.
  • In a small bowl, combine ingredients for sriracha mayo and whisk until smooth. Can be made ahead and stored for up to a week.
  • Preheat grill to medium/high heat. Add pork patties to the grill and allow to cook without moving for 5 minutes. Flip the patties and repeat with the other side. If the meat isn’t cooked through, flip every minutes until cooked to avoid burning. If you don’t have a grill heat a large cast iron skillet over medium/high heat and coat lightly with sesame oil. Working in batches of two add prepared pork patties to the skillet and cook without moving until edges begin to crisp. About 5 minutes. Flip and repeat with the other side. If the patties aren’t cooked through flip every minutes until done to avoid burning. Continue with the remaining patties and set aside.
  • To prepare the burgers toast the brioche buns in the toasted or under a low broil in the oven. Add sriracha mayo to both sides of the bun and top with the pork patty, cucumbers, jalapeños, cilantro and plenty of pickled vegetables. Serve immediately.
