For quick pickled veggies:

  • 2 carrots
  • 2 Persian cucumbers
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water

For the burgers:

  • 6 Brioche burger buns
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 8 leaves basil
  • 4 leaves mint
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 tbsp sriracha
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • sliced jalapeƱos, fresh mint, basil and cilantro for garnish
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 tbsp sriracha


  • Using a vegetable peeler slice the carrots and cucumbers into ribbons. Thinly slice the shallot and mince ginger and garlic. In a bowl combine rice vinegar with water and sugar, salt, garlic and ginger. Mix well and pour over carrot and cucumber ribbons. Let sit for at least 30 minutes occasionally stirring.
    Chop basil and mint leaves and mince garlic, ginger and green onions. In a large bowl add it to the ground pork along with the Sriracha, fish sauce, sugar, soy sauce, salt and pepper and bread crumbs. Mix well and shape into 6 patties. They will shrink and thicken up as they cook so make them wider than your buns and thinner than you want them.
    Cook in a pan with some canola oil for 3-4 minutes on each side.
    While they are cooking combine the mayo with 2 tablespoons of Sriracha and generously apply on the bottom of the brioche bun. Once the burgers are cooked, top each bun with it and then top the burgers with several ribbons of pickled carrots and cucumber. Depending on your preferences add fresh basil, mint and cilantro and some sliced jalapeƱos. Top with brioche bun and serve immediately.
