- a few drops Tabasco sauce, or a pinch of cayenne pepper shopping list
- hoisin sauce shopping list
- large whole green lettuce leaves – romaine works well shopping list
- ½ cup or so of roasted peanuts, coarsely ground shopping list
- a handful of cilantro, coarsely chopped shopping list
How to make it
- Mix meat with garlic, onions, soy sauce, peanut oil, sugar and Tabasco or cayenne.
- Form into patties and grill until cooked through.
- Serve each grilled patty spread with hoisin sauce, wrapped in a leaf of lettuce, sprinkled with peanuts and cilantro.
- These are delicious exactly as described, however, you could spread the hoisin sauce inside a pita bread and insert the patties into it along with the lettuce for a more conventional burger experience.
