Asian Lamb Burger | Dixie Chik Cooks

Asian Burger

My Asian Burger is a burger that’s built with lean ground beef and ground lamb, and layered with Asian flavors of ginger and sesame. This post is part of a kick ass burger grill giveaway hosted by GirlCarnivore, but the burger epicness is all my own.

It’s #burgermonth again.

Honestly, burgers are one of my most cherished foods to make in the entire world. Remember last year??

This post is a part of Girl Carnivore’s Burger Month, an annual epic month long burger posting, making, eating event. I’m honored to be participating in this epic burger deliciousness again.

I adore Kita Roberts – what’s her tagline again?? Oh yeah, it’s “Because boys aren’t the only ones that like to play with their meat.

Let’s get to my burger!

This is my Asian Burger. It’s made with lamb and sirloin that I put through my meat grinder.

It’s topped with grilled asparagus, caramelized onions and a luscious ginger sauce (think Hibachi grill salad dressing).

You can grind your own, or just buy the meat already ground.

I love using my grinder because I like to make things complicated when you grind your own meat, you know exactly what’s in it. No fillers, no gross meat, no more fat than you want in it.

It makes me feel better knowing what I’m eating.


After grinding it all up and combining, I threw in the fridge because warm, soggy meat doesn’t do well on the grill.

After getting my grill nice and hot, I threw my burgers and asparagus on. For my burgers, I like to achieve a doneness level of about medium. Keep in mind they continue to cook for a few minutes after being taken off the grill.

I put my buns on the grill at the last minute, just to get them a little toasty. Make sure you slather them with butter first.

I adore this burger.

It’s an adaptation of my steak at the 2015 World Food Championships.

I love drippy photos.
