Thai Prew Wan Burger

Thai Burger
     I am slightly obsessed with Thai food. I mean I will go out of my way to just have some of my favorite dishes in a Thai restaurant. I have been known to travel an hour or so just to sit and have a simple Thai dinner. My obsession can almost border on the line of creepy, (Just kidding), but I do love the combinations that Thai cuisine offer. Spicy alongside sweet. Fragrant and herbal alongside savory and smoky. I love them all. This dish came to mind when I had just had some Thai food in the city and was still craving another hit of it. The weather was starting to break and I also wanted to grill a juicy hamburger.........BAMM! It hit me. Why not combine the two into one delicious lip smacking dinner. Thai meets American. Here we go. My Thai Prew Wan Burger, (or Thai sweet and sour meets American backyard classic).
  • 1 lb burger.
  • Brioche buns
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 8 oz can crushed pineapple
  • 1 small bundle green onion
  • 1 1/2 tbs soy
  • 1 1/2 tbs oyster sauce
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1/4 cup  ketchup
  • 1 tbs Thai chili sauce
  • Salt/pepper
1. Salt and pepper the ground beef and separate into 4 equal parts. Roll up and press between wax paper with a plate to make about 6 inch in diameter burger patties. Sit aside.
2. Meanwhile dice up the cucumber and tomato into chunks. Combine in a bowl with the crushed
pineapple. Dice up the green onion and combine.
3. In a wok over medium high heat saute the cucumber, tomato, pineapple, and onion in a little oil until tender.
4. Combine the soy, oyster sauce, sugar, ketchup, and chili sauce into a bowl. Mix well and pour into wok.
5. Stir together until combined and remove from wok. Sit aside.
6. Now grill the burgers to your taste.
7. Serve mixture on top of burger patty. Top with Brioche buns.
     This burger was sooooooooo damn good. I saved a few for my friends and they loved it. Give it a try.
