Step By Step  

These tender, juicy burgers pack a powerful punch of flavor!

As prepared by Daring Gourmet,

A killer combination of Five Spice powder, crispy Asian cole slaw and a creamy curry sauce means these burgers are sure to become a dinnertime fave. 

Almost everybody loves a good burger. After all, what's there not to like? You've got your meat, carbs and veggies all in one. Burger joints have been trying to outdo each other for decades, coming up with all kinds of combinations. The sky's the limit on the kinds of creative burgers that can be found across the country. 

Just to give you an example, my husband and I recently went out to a restaurant that featured the "Dead Elvis Burger". It's certainly a catchy name. What was on it? Candied peppered bacon, fried banana, over-easy egg, creamy peanut butter, and mayonnaise. Of course, all of those ingredients are just fine individually...but combined? I didn't have that kind of courage!

Today's burger is one that won't require any courage on your part – just a good appetite for a great burger. The beef patties are rubbed down with a deliciously mysterious Five Spice powder, grilled to perfection, and then topped with sautéed shiitake mushrooms and green onions, a crispy Asian coleslaw, and then slathered with a creamy coconut curry sauce. We're talking a burger on flavor steroids! Your taste buds won't know what hit them. But they'll be happy.

Deliriously happy.

Tips  

The sauce can be made in advance to save time. The beef patties can also be seasoned in advance. The Asian Coleslaw can likewise be made in advance, but the longer it sits the less crispy it will be.
