I have to agree with reviewer, "abndgrrl," the burgers were flavorful, but a little dry. I did use the leaner ground pork; this could be the reason for the dry factor.
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.
