Hoisin Ginger Burgers with Lime Pickled Onions
This highfalutin Asian burger loaded with garlic, ginger, cilantro, and hoisin sauce with mizuna, tomato, lime pickled red onions and Thai chili sauce all snuggled between a toasted brioche roll with melted gruyere. The Asian spices combined with the sweet hoisin sauce go well with the nutty gruyere, the pickles added some southeast Asian zing and the sweet Thai chili sauce makes the perfect substitute for ketchup.
This makes enough for 4 smaller burgers (perfect for a brioche roll), or 2 large 1/2 lb burgers. It took me about 45 minutes from start to finish but your mileage may vary.
for the patty:
for the pickled onions:
Combine the ingredients for the patty with your hand; be careful not to over mix it. Form the patties and stick them on parchment paper until you’re ready to cook them.
For the pickles, just separate the onion into rings, cover with the salt and water and let it sit for about 15 minutes. When they’re starting to wilt give them a little “massage” to until they’re translucent. Squeeze out any excess water and dump out the brine. Return the onions to the bowl and squeeze half a lime onto the onions.
Grill/fry/broil the patty’s to your desired level of done-ness and while the burgers are cooking, cut the rolls down the center and toss them in a toaster oven with a layer of gruyere on the bottom half of each bun.
To assemble, just spread a little Thai chili sauce on the top half of the toasted bun. Place a burger on the cheese half of each bun, top with pickled onions, tomato and mizuna then figure out how you’re gonna fit it all in your mouth

Making the aioli

Puree until smooth. With the motor running, add the reserved roasting oil and the additional 1-1/2 cups oil in a slow, steady stream and continue processing until emulsified. Refrigerate until needed.
