Make this Heisenberger for your ‘Breaking Bad’ finale party
Having friends over for this weekend’s big “Breaking Bad” finale? Whip up this festive burger for yourself and your guests. Just please, don’t slip any ricin into it.
1 pound ground beef
½ green onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons cilantro, minced
2 tablespoons ginger, minced
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
black pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients, being careful not to over-mix. Shape into patties and grill to desired done-ness. Makes four quarter-pound burgers.
Top with Marie’s Purple Slaw:
2 cups shredded purple cabbage
2 green onions or scallions, diced
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon veg oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
In a medium bowl, toss together all of the above. Make this ahead of time if desired and store covered in the fridge.
Slather on some Spicy Hoisin Mayonnaise:
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
3 teaspoons Asian chili garlic sauce or Sriracha
Whisk all ingredients together in small bowl and set aside.
Basic Assembly: toast buns (we think a brioche roll or a sweeter roll works well) in broiler or on the grill until lightly browned. Place cooked burger on one side of bun. Slather a spread of the spicy hoisin mayo on top of burger. Layer the purple slaw on top. Finally, spread a thin layer of the mayo on the other half of the bun and top burger.
