Mini Spicy Asian Pork Burgers

The thing about cooking is that there doesn't need to be an exact recipe. For me, it's all about trial and error and in my case, there are few errors because Luke eats just about anything. Today, Luke called me from the airport and told me that he was bringing home fries. That inspired me to make burgers for dinner and that was how these Mini Spicy Asian Pork Burgers came to be.

I didn't follow a recipe. Basically, I took what I already had at home, threw them in a bowl, and cooked the patties on stove top. These mini burgers turned out juicy, spicy, and full of flavor. They photographed nicely too!

Mini Spicy Asian Pork Burger

- Ground pork
- Chopped green onions
- Chopped cilantro
- Chopped shitake mushroom
- Few cloves of garlic, smashed
- Few red pepper flakes
- 1 egg
- a splash of soy sauce
- a dash of salt and pepper
- few squirts of Sriracha hot sauce

No measuring spoons here; I eyeballed everything. I combined all the ingredients and cooked them over medium to medium-high heat. I made small patties because I wanted them to cook faster (to avoid drying out) and because they are just cuter and more fun to eat. I bought dinner rolls instead of regular-size hamburger buns. In addition to the chopped cilantro already in the burgers, I topped each with more cilantro, just because I feel better when I see more greens in my food.

No ketchup or cheese needed. Just eat it plain. Yum, better than Big Mac, if I do say so myself. =]
