Old Chinatown Pork Burgers



  • 2 pounds bulk mild pork sausage
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 (5 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 sesame seed burger buns
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 3/4 cup sweet and sour sauce
  • Directions

    Mix together pork sausage, bread crumbs, onion, water chestnuts, egg, sherry, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger in a bowl until evenly combined. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes to make mixture easier to handle, then form into 6 patties. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate. Cook burgers on preheated grill until no longer pink in the center, about 7 minutes. Lightly toast buns on hot grill. Serve burgers on toasted buns, and top with bean sprouts and sweet and sour sauce.
    A wonderfully different burger to fix on the grill. Makes 6 burgers.
