F&W's Melissa Rubel adds scallions, fresh ginger, garlic and sesame oil to ground pork for a juicy Asian-flavored burger.

  1. 1 1/2 pounds ground pork
  2. 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  3. 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
  4. 1 large garlic clove, minced
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons Asian sesame oil
  6. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  7. 4 hamburger buns, split
  8. 2 cups coleslaw mix
  9. 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  10. 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  1. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a large bowl, mix the pork with the scallions, ginger, garlic, 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil, 2 teaspoons of kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Form the meat into four 3/4-inch thick patties.
  2. Grill the burgers, turning once, until cooked through, about 8 minutes. Lightly toast the buns on the grill.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss the coleslaw mix with the rice vinegar, soy sauce and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set the burgers on the buns, top with the slaw and serve.
Serve With Sriracha and mayonnaise.
