This simple Asian-style take on the all-American hamburger has plenty of flavor thanks to the garlic, ginger and chili sauce. Serve on a bun or get creative: Wrap the burgers in lettuce leaves or a lightly toasted flatbread. In place of ketchup, garnish each patty with a dollop of chutney, such as Major Grey's. Or, top the burgers with fresh basil or cilantro leaves.<br>
<br>
1 1/2 pounds ground chuck<br>
<br>
4 green onions, minced<br>
<br>
3 cloves garlic, minced<br>
<br>
1 piece (1 inch long) ginger, minced<br>
<br>
1/2 cup soy sauce<br>
<br>
2 tablespoons Thai chili sauce<br>
<br>
2 teaspoons Thai fish sauce or to taste<br>
<br>
1/2 teaspoon pepper<br>
<br>
4 hamburger buns, toasted<br>
<br>
4 tablespoons mango chutney, optional<br>
<br>
Prepare a grill or broiler for high heat. Combine the ground chuck, onions, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, chili sauce, fish sauce and pepper in a large bowl. Cover; marinate in the refrigerator 30 minutes.<br>
<br>
Form the meat mixture into patties. Grill or broil, turning once, until desired doneness is reached, or for medium rare, about 8 minutes. Place each burger on a bun bottom; top with chutney and bun top.<br>
