Recipe by Chez Michelle
I found this in a magazine (Paul Kirk, Baron of Barbeque's recipe) If you like asian flavors you will love this recipe. Paul likes to add a tsp of cayenne to this recipe to get for of the Thai effect and taste. Recipe is as written. My 12 year old requests these often. :) I thought I would try making Thai'ders soon.....just bought some mini hamburger buns. I thought little sliders would be good with this recipe. **See Chef Note Below :) This is how I prefer them :)

I made these burgers from the same recipe in the same magazine. Somehow the page got separated from the magazine. My 39 year old son LOVES these burgers. I searched & searched & finally found the recipe again thanks to you!! Now I can make them tomorrow for Labor Day.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ground chuck
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon of minced fresh cilantro leaves
- 2 teaspoons peeled and grated fresh ginger
- 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon finely ground pepper
- 1 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
- 6 hamburger buns, toasted
Directions See How It's Made
- 1. Prepare a medium hot fire on your grill (I have gas grill).
- 2. Combine beef, peanut butter, sour cream, soy sauce, lime juice, cilantro, ginger, brown sugar, red pepper, salt and black pepper (cayenne opitonal) in a large bowl, blending well with your hands. Shape into 6 patties 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch thick.
- 3. Place directly over coals, cover and grill to your desired degree of doneness, 5-7 minutes for medium rare.
- 4. Place burgers on buns and top with lettuce tomatoes and onions and BBQ sauce.
- **Chef Note: I skip #4 and like to top with my favorite Asian/Thai slaw- I have also found that a thin layer of peanut butter (as crazy as it sounds) on the bun gives it an amazing Thai flavor. Enjoy!
