Wasabi Mint Burgers

Oh rainy Vancouver, as much as you try and convince me that I all I need is soup, really all I want is a big hunk of tasty meat in between two buns. I know it’s winter, but I whipped out the BBQ and did it anyway.


600g ground beef
1 onion
1.5 teaspoons ground pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon water
1 beaten egg
1 teaspoon lemongrass  paste
1/4 cup finely chopped mint leaves
4 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon honey
43g tube of wasabi paste


  1.  Chop up your onion as you would for a normal stir fry and fry them in a pan with some oil or butter and salt until they go a nice golden colour.
  2. In a bowl add the ground beef, cooked onions, pepper, salt, water, beaten egg, lemongrass paste, finely chopped mint leaves, minced garlic, honey and wasabi paste, and mix well.
  3. Form patties to the desired size. Cook immediately in a pan or BBQ, or store in the fridge for a new days, or freeze patties between layers of parchment paper in an air tight container.
  4. I ate mine on a Cobbs whole wheat bun, with horseradish, ketchup and some veggies.

You can add breadcrumbs and a bit of butter to the mixture to pad it out a bit, but I wanted to keep it fairly healthy. Hope you like!
