Peanuts, cilantro, brown sugar, lime juice, and fish sauce create the flavors of the Indonesian meat skewers called saté. Using equal amounts of ground turkey and pork keeps these burgers lean. Serve on a bed of brown rice with spinach and lime wedges.
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup finely chopped unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)
3 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 pound ground pork
3/4 pound ground turkey breast
How to Make It
Combine first 11 ingredients. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.
Place patties on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer registers 165°. Remove from grill; let stand 5 minutes.
We LOVE these burgers!! The flavors are OUTSTANDING! Company-worthy! In fact, I am here to print a copy of this recipe for a neighbor and my husband has already shared this recipe with a co-worker. We LOVE several of the burger recipes from "A world of burgers" in the August 2007 issue. These recipes make "Burger Night" a treat in our house for parents and kids alike! Paired with baked steak fries, we're a happy HEALTHY family!
