  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • For the slaw:
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  2. Divide the mixture into four equal portions and shape them into burger patties.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the burger patties on the grill and cook them for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness.
  4. While the burgers are cooking, prepare the slaw. In a bowl, mix together the shredded cabbage, mayonnaise, rice vinegar, sesame seeds, sugar, salt, and pepper. Toss until everything is well coated.
  5. Toast the hamburger buns on the grill for a minute or two until they are lightly browned.
  6. Assemble the burgers by placing a grilled patty on the bottom half of each bun. Top with a generous amount of slaw and cover with the top half of the bun.
  7. Serve the Asian barbecue burgers immediately and enjoy!
