A Vietnamese twist on a regular burger, our Banh-Mi inspired Pork Burger is a great way to spice things up! A lean pork patty spiced with chilli, garlic, basil and soy sauce makes a wonderful burger, especially when topped with pickled sweet & sour Vietnamese vegetables and served in a soft and fluffy burger bun!

Whilst we love a good old fashioned burger, sometimes a burger can be so much more than just a burger. Burgers are a summer BBQ staple! But let’s be honest, by the end of summer, a burger doesn’t sound as appealing as it did at the beginning of it! This is not the case though if you have a good stock of recipes for Burgers with all the different meats, fish, tofu, chickpeas… not forgetting a variety of extra toppings you can add to them. What makes a burger even more exciting, is seasoning it with all the different flavours of the world!

My relationship with Vietnamese food is a long-standing affair, but I truly fell in love with it a few years ago in a small Vietnamese restaurant in Singapore. When visiting the country we were recommended to go to PHO 99, and we were blown away by the flavours! The place was jam-packed with people, the waitress was walking and talking at 100 miles per hour and all the businessmen in fancy suits were skillfully finishing their noodles using chopsticks without even stopping to breathe within minutes! It was truly a fast-food environment in the best, most exhilarating way possible! And we mimicked the environment by finishing our meals without saying a word to each other within 5 minutes ourselves.

When we walked out, we looked at each other and unanimously agreed that this was one of the best meals we’ve ever had! It would be foolish not to try and incorporate some of those flavours into our everyday cooking at home, here in North Wales! Today we are sharing a Vietnamese Banh Mi Burger recipe. You may have heard of a Banh Mi Sandwich, which is one of the most well-known foods of Vietnam here in the Western World.


How to Make a Banh Mi Inspired Burger?

Before you begin making your burgers, you may want to make your own Vietnamese Pickled Vegetables. You can find the recipe here. Note, you will need to make these a day before you wish to eat the burgers!

To make the burger patties, combine the minced pork, soy sauce, cornflour, caster sugar, basil, garlic, spring onion and sriracha in a large bowl. Mix well and divide the mixture into two. Using your hands, form two patties to match the size of your burger buns. Place them in the fridge to firm up.

To make the spicy mayo, combine mayo, sriracha and spring onion in a small bowl and mix.

Banh Mi Burger

Brush a large non-stick frying pan or cast-iron skillet with oil. Heat it on medium-high heat. Add pork patties and cook for approx 4 minutes. Don’t move the patties around too much at first, otherwise, you risk them crumbling in your pan.

Flip the Banh Mi Burger patties over and carry on cooking for another 4 minutes, or until they are fully cooked through.

When ready to assemble your burgers, lightly toast the burger buns in the oven. Spread a tbsp of sriracha mayo on both halves of the bun. Add your burger patty and top with the pickled vegetables, cucumber and coriander. Serve with some fries (or sesame fries)!
