Default "Chinese Hamburgers"

This is a recipe my mother gave me. They're delicious. I'm not sure
how truly "Chinese" they are, nor do I much care. Mom likely got the
recipe from one of the officer's wives when we lived in Bangkok.

1 lb. ground beef
1/4 c. sliced mushrooms*
1 c. sliced water chestnuts*
1 egg
2 Tbs. cornstarch

"sauce"
3 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tbs. sherry
1/4 tsp. salt
dash of MSG
1 tsp. sugar
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 tsp. ginger powder

Combine the beef, mushrooms, water chestnuts (*I minced them), egg and
cornstarch togther in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix the "sauce"
ingredients. Add it into the beef mixture. I mixed it all together by
hand like meatloaf. Put on gloves if you're squeamish. The mixture is
moist so sprinkle more cornstarch as needed. Form into 6 patties and
let them chill on waxed paper to set in the fridge for about an hour.
Then grill, broil or pan fry "until done". Not a very specific
instruction but I know what it means.

I prefer these burgers grilled (over charcoal) and served on a nice
toasted bun. With some potato chips on the side. The burgers don't
really need any embellishment. Feel free to add lettuce, tomato,
whatever. But please keep in mind there's already a "sauce" built into
the burger. It probably doesn't need additional condiments.

Apart from the sherry, which was probably a replacement for shoaxing
rice wine, all the ingredients are part of Chinese cuisine.

I made something similar one time and turned them into baguette
sliders. The sauce seems to be some sort of sriracha mayo with
green onion and maybe some other stuff.

Eeek, 6 years ago! Funny how it only seems like 5.5 years ago.

Please remind me to order a half dozen of those whenever you
finally open your restaurant. Nice looking!

That could work! It might even make ground turkey taste good.

Gobble, Gobble... nah... I don't even care much for roast turkey,
I only roast a turkey on Thanksgiving because it's tradional.

Your Oriental style recipe may work with coarsely ground shrimp...
just no cheese! heheheh

You know I don't actually care for turkey. I only mention it because
there are a few folks who still buy ground turkey. For some reason they
think it's more healthy. Hope they're reading the labels. Ground
turkey often includes the skin which is where the fat is.

This recipe would be a way to make it taste better.

LOL! I'm not likely to make shrimp burgers. I've never made them but I
have tasted shrimp burgers in some local restaurants. I'm not impressed
enough to want to make them at home. Despite being a major industry in
the area, I'm not crazy about shrimp.
