Asian Style Burger Bash

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Miss Erin C.

This is my submission for the first Ready-Set-Cook in 2002. I admit the slaw on the burger seems a bit weird, but it's really great. The noodle salad is kind of a knock off of my favorite dish! All in all this was a pretty quick meal to make.

I was unable to participate in the July 4th Cookathon since I had chosen to be part of an Emergency Services team on standby for local celebratory events. So on July 5th, I killed two birds – Cookathon and “Ready, Set, Cook!” – with one recipe, and this one was my lucky choice. The ginger and soy gave the burgers a delicious “oomph” but, for some reason, the ginger just didn’t seem to fit in with the salad. And the peanut butter and peanuts, while noticeably tasty in the slaw/burgers, just didn’t hit it off in the salad - I think perhaps it was more because of the texture rather than the taste. The slaw on the burgers was not in the slightest bit “weird” – hardly different from having a burger with slaw on the side! So the final verdict is that the burgers were definitely first-class and a most worthy contest entry, but it’s back to the drawing board with the salad.
