Banh Mi Pork Burgers

Banh Mi Pork Burgers
Servings: 4

1/2 cup shredded peeled carrots
1/2 cup thinly-sliced radish
1 lime - juice and zest separated
Kosher salt
1 pound ground pork
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon fish sauce
Coconut oil, for the pan
Homemade Mayonnaise
Homemade Sriracha
12 fresh cilantro sprigs

In a medium bowl, toss the carrots, radish, lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Let stand while you make the burgers.

In a large bowl, combine the pork, lime zest, garlic, ginger, and fish sauce with your hands until well mixed. Form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties that are slightly larger than your buns.

Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Rub it with oil to coat. Add the patties. They should fit comfortably in a single layer; don't crowd the pan. Cook until browned on the bottom, about 6 minutes, then flip and cook until the meat is cooked through, about 6 minutes longer.

Mix mayonnaise and sriracha, to taste, and dip burgers in this sauce.

You can use buns if you want, but don't do it all the time.

NOTES: This is easily the best burger recipe we've come across in a long while. So delicious!!
