Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced cucumber
  • 3 radishes sliced
  • 1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 4 onion buns halved
Sweet-and-Sour Barbecue Sauce:
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2/3 cups bottled strained tomatoes (passata)
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 pinch salt

Method

Sweet-and-Sour Barbecue Sauce: In small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until tender and light golden, about 5 minutes.

Stir in strained tomatoes, chipotle pepper, tomato paste, vinegar, sugar and salt; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool slightly. Using immersion blender, purée until smooth; set aside.

Meanwhile, stir together turkey, bread crumbs, egg, chili powder, salt and pepper until combined. Shape into four 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick patties.

Place patties on greased grill over medium-high heat; brush with half of the sauce. Close lid and grill, turning once and brushing with remaining sauce, until instant-read thermometer inserted in centre reads 165ºF (74ºC), 10 to 12 minutes. Serve with avocado, cucumber, radishes and lettuce in buns.
