Japanese pork-and-cabbage dumplings, called gyoza, inspired these yummy burgers. The subtle sweetness of brioche or pain au lait buns makes for a perfect pairing, but if you can't find them, substitute with your favourite soft hamburger buns.

  • Prep time 25 minutes
  • Total time 25 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 piece (1 inch) fresh ginger , peeled and sliced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons liquid honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup stemmed shiitake mushrooms
  • 4 green onions , chopped
  • 450 g lean ground pork
  • 1/3 cup panko or dried bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 3 1/2 cups coleslaw mix
  • 4 teaspoons light mayonnaise
  • 4 brioche or pain au lait buns , split and toasted

Method

In food processor, purée together egg, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, 2 tsp of the honey, pinch each of the salt and pepper and 1 tbsp water until smooth. Add mushrooms and green onions; pulse until finely chopped.


In bowl, mix together pork, mushroom mixture and bread crumbs just until combined. Shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Or freeze for up to 3 weeks and add 5 to 7 minutes to cook time.) Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until instant-read thermometer inserted sideways into patties reads 160°F, about 13 minutes.


While patties are grilling, in large bowl, whisk together sesame oil, vinegar and remaining honey, salt and pepper. Add coleslaw mix; toss to coat. Spread 1 tsp of the mayonnaise onto cut sides of bottom halves of buns. Top each with pattie and 1/2 cup of the coleslaw mixture; sandwich with top halves of buns.
