  • For the burgers:
  • 1 1/2 lbs ground pork
  • 2 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated with a zester
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 green onion, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Chinese five spice
  • 1/2 Tbsp tamari
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • For the fixings:
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage and carrots
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp tamari
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 cucumber, cut into spears
  • 4 Kaiser rolls or a baguette (any crunchy bread or roll will do)

In a large bowl, mix all of the burger ingredients together. Divide into 4 and shape your burgers, making them about 1/2” thick.

Set your grill to medium-high. Grill your burgers for about 4 minutes per side.

For the “fixings”, get a medium-sized bowl and add the shredded cabbage and carrots, rice vinegar, tamari and sesame oil. Stir to combine.

Layer your bread with a burger, the cabbage/carrot mixture and the cucumbers. Serve.
