Anyhoo, because it's summer and everyone's grilling burgers, I thought I'd throw you another reason to slap some ground beef into patties and toss them onto a hot grate whilst chugging beer in the great outdoors.
But of course, we don't do pedestrian burgers in the Slutty Kitchen. We are not satisfied with boring-ass ketchup/mustard/cheese bullshit on plain old beef. We amplify standard ingredients, then augment them with sluttiness, usually headed in some sort of direction that seems wrong but ends up oh so right.
The main source of sluttiness comes from the combo beef/pork situation in the patty, then we douse it with a creamy yet spicy sauce and add some obligatory veg/green shit. The result is a perfectly balanced burger. You're welcome.
Slutty Asian Burgers
with Spicy Sesame Spread
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
6 cloves garlic, crushed/minced
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Sriracha
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 green onions, chopped
1 red onion, sliced
4 sesame burger buns
4 handfuls mixed greens
1 avocado, sliced
Preheat your grill to medium high heat. If you haven't started already, now is the time to crack open a beer. Combine your beef and pork in a bowl. Shape into four patties. Yes, these will be 1/2 pound before cooking. You know much of that is fat that will cook off, right? Quit being a pansy.
In a bowl, whisk together the garlic, Dijon mustard, Sriracha, soy sauce, sesame oil, cream cheese and green onions until well blended. Set it aside. Feel free to dip your finger in there and give it a lick. Save some for the burgers.
Grill your onions. No, I'm not going to tell you how. If you don't know how to grill sliced onions, go away. Toast your buns now, too.
Grill the patties for 4 minutes per side. Assemble, with the greens on the bottom bun, then the patties, then a big splooge of the cream cheese sauce, topped with onions and avocado, then the top bun (duh). Serve with Asian beer and then go to a karaoke bar. My favorite jam is Eye of the Tiger.
