Lemongrass Beef And Shrimp Burger

Ingredients

500 grams Ground Beef
150 grams, Peeled Shrimps, chopped
1 Tbsp Peanut or Vegetable Oil
1 Large Yellow Onion, chopped
1 ½ tsp Minced Garlic
¾ tsp Ground Lemongrass
½ tsp Ground Galangal
1 tsp Chili Flakes
2 tsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Fish Sauce
1 Large Egg
1 tsp Sea Salt

4 Burger Buns
Lemongrass Aioli
Asian Style Coleslaw
Some Fresh Coriander
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Method

Heat 1 Tbsp of the oil in a pan over moderate heat. Add the onion and stir until softened, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

Combine the ground beef, shrimps, cooked onion, garlic, egg, lemongrass, galangal, chili flakes, sugar, and fish sauce. Let the mixture marinate in the fridge for about 2 hours. When ready to serve, divide the meat into 4 equal patties. Shape the patties slightly bigger than the size of the burger buns.

Prepare the grill for direct cooking. Grill the patties for about 3 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked. Meanwhile, toast the buns lightly and set side. To serve, spread some lemongrass aioli, place the burger patty on the bun, top with Asian style coleslaw, freshly ground black pepper, and coriander. Serve immediately.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
