Asian Burgers are a new and inventive way to create a different but delicious burger. This time, though, I thought I would go Asian.  I took all of our favorite Asian flavors and combined them into the meat.  Then I grilled them and topped the whole thing with this amazing Asian Slaw and a Thai Chili sauce (that I could eat on its own!).

The result was a incredible!  The burger was juicy and dripping with flavor – we couldn’t get enough.

Here are even more fun and exciting grill recipes.
