Something different to banish burger burn-out! You can substitute lean ground pork, chicken or beef. Adapted from a China Boy recipe.
- 1 lb lean ground turkey
- 1⁄2 cup chow mein noodles, coarsely crushed
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce or 1 tablespoon dark molasses
- 1 teaspoon onion salt
- 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- Combine all ingredients and shape into four patties.
- Grill or boil to desired doneness.
- Serve with additional hoisin sauce or sweet chili sauce instead of ketchup.
These were really good burgers. I love burgers, but do get bored of plain old beef burgers with no pizzazz. These fixed that! I love the soy/hoisin sauce flavors. I switch to garlic salt and onion powder, but don't think that made a difference in any way. Thanks for posting this easy, tasty recipe!
Great burgers that take very little time to put together. Instead of ground turkey I used ground round and dark molasses for the hoisin sauce. The chow mein noodles do not stay crunchy when the burgers are cooked but add a nicer texture and flavor than bread crumbs. I did increase the garlic powder to 1/2 teaspoon. Served with racrgal's Mom's Rice Casserole and green beans. Made and reviewed for the Asian Forums Use Your Noodle Tag Game.
Very easy with tasty results. I used lean ground beef instead of turkey. I also used hoisin sauce. The chow mein noodles weren't crunchy once the burgers were cooked but I didn't see it as a negative. Both DH, DS and his friend "scarfed" them down. Will definitely make again. Could be made into small meatballs and serve with rice noodles. :yummy:
