TO MAKE THE CHAR SIU GLAZE


Step 1

In a small saucepan, heat all of the ingredients over medium-low. Cook and stir until just combined and slightly warm, about 2 to 3 minutes; set aside.

TO MAKE THE CILANTRO ASIAN SLAW


Step 2

Mix the hoisin sauce, lime juice, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Add cabbage, carrot, and cilantro; toss to coat.

Step 3

Season the pork patties with a pinch each salt and pepper. Brush a grill grate with the olive oil and heat to medium-high. Grill patties for 4 to 6 minutes; flip and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes.

TO BUILD THE BURGER


Step 4

Place each patty on a roll bottom. (I like to toast my top and bottom on the grill). Add a drizzle of the char siu glaze, the cilantro Asian slaw, and a roll top.

Fabulous! I wasn't able to grill, just used a skillet and they were still wonderful. Can't wait to get moved back into my house where it is easier to grill in this heat! Going into my Best of 2016 cookbook....so easy and delicious! Thanks for sharing! Made for First Time Tag.
