Sriracha Burgers - Hot As You Want

Hot And Juicy
We're at that stage in the Free From G abode where we're planning meals around Sriracha, it really does work with anything. Obvious choice was to make a Sriracha Burger, so that's what we did, there's only a few ingredients but man, do these taste good.

The great thing about these burgers is that you can make them as hot or as mild as you want. There's a bit of a discrepancy between The Glutenite's heat tolerance and mine, so I made these pretty mild to suit him. Personally, I'd add double the Sriracha I did for this recipe, but it's totally down to personal preference so completely adaptable depending on how much heat you want.

For 4 large burgers.


400g Pork Mince 
1 Medium Onion
4 Tablespoons Tamari Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons Sriracha

I've always fried burgers previously but I'm trying to limit fat content right now. For me, grilling is definitely the way forward, for an even lower fat version you could always use a George Forman Grill, if you want to fry them you can. Numerous ways to cook a Sriracha Burger.

I decided to go for the large size due to wanting to eat so bad and it being quicker, but you can make much smaller for a bigger yield or even mini Sriracha Burgers (which would personally be my favourite). 

What you serve these with is down to you, we just had Butternut Squash Fries as an accompaniment. Yoki Bread would make great buns for these and it's not pictured but we added thin slices of Emmenthal when served, cheese works really well.

Whatever you serve them with they're sure to be amazing.
