Inspired by the flavors of the Vietnamese sandwich, these Pork Banh Mi burgers are packed full of flavor. They are as easy as these Simple Barbecued Burgers but make for a nice switch up to your summer grilling flavors. Load them up with crisp vegetables and creamy sriracha sauce for a super fresh meal! I hope you like these as much as I do!
- Ground pork
- Sriracha- the burgers definitely have some kick so if you are sensitive to spice, you can use half of what is called for
- Fish sauce
- Dried basil- feel free to substitute ¼ cup freshly chopped if you have it on hand
- Garlic powder
- Black pepper
- Onion powder
- Sea salt
- Combine the pork with the spices and sauces.
- Shape into burgers.
You can prepare the burger patties and place in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 day ahead of cooking. Or you can freeze the uncooked patties for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw to room temperature in the refrigerator before proceeding with cooking.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or freeze up to 3 months.
