If you’re a fan of the classic Vietnamese sandwiches known as a Banh Mi, hold onto your hats because there’s a new way to enjoy all the flavors of a Banh Mi, and it comes in the form of a lip-smacking good burger! We’ve swapped the baguette for a crusty burger bun and topped the succulent chicken and pork patties with all the classic Banh Mi toppings.

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • Burgers:
  • ½ pound ground chicken
  • ½ pound ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • ⅛ cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • Assembly:
  • 4 crusty burger buns
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • Sliced cucumber
  • Grated carrot
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Pickled jalapenos (optional)
  • 4 fried eggs, yolks still runny (optional)

Equipment

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Large skillet or fry pan
  • Wide spatula
  • Spoon

Method

  • Place the ground chicken and pork in a large mixing bowl and add all of the other burger ingredients. Mix to combine but make sure not to over mix. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • While burgers are resting make the spicy sauce by combining mayonnaise, sriracha and fish sauce in a small mixing bowl. Stir to combine and set aside until assembly.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a bit of oil once hot.
  • Divide the burger mixture into four equal portions and shape each into a patty. They will be pretty wet but will firm up once cooked.
  • Cook patties for about 5-6 minutes per side or until cooked through with a nice crust. Remove patties from skillet, give it a quick wipe and then fry your eggs if using.
  • To assemble, spread spicy sauce on both the inside bottom and top of each bun. Top each with a patty, fried egg, lettuce leaf, cucumber slices, jalapeno slices, grated carrot and a sprig of fresh cilantro before topping with the bun.
