Vietnamese Pork Burger
The idea for a Vietnamese-inspired pork burger has been living in my head for a long time, and I am super stoked that I finally got to bring it into reality (and my stomach).
A ground pork patty flavored with chilies, fish sauce, scallions, and herbs on a toasty bun with crisp lettuce and salty-sweet pickled vegetables, all complemented by spicy jalapeno slices and a healthy drizzle of sriracha mayo. What else could you want? It’s fantastic.
Seriously, though, we don’t need to spill any more ink about this. Go make yourself some burgers.
Vietnamese Pork Burgers
1 lb. ground pork

2 tbsp minced scallion
2 tbsp lemongrass paste
1 tbsp minced cilantro
Quick-Pickled Carrot and Daikon
Sriracha Mayo (1:1 mixture sriracha & mayo)
Combine the burger ingredients in a large bowl and form into 4 even, thin patties. Cook them until browned on both sides in a skillet over medium-high heat or on a medium-heat grill.
Serve on toasted buns with lettuce, pickled vegetables, jalapeno slices, and sriracha mayo.
