We were inspired by the flavours of New York's Chinatown... So we decided to combine ALL of them into one way over-the-top creation, the ultimate Chinatown burger.
- 4 cloves garlic
- 2 fresh red chilies
- ½-inch slice fresh ginger
- 5 scallions
- ½ cup cilantro
- ¼ white onion
- ½ lb cubed pork butt
- ½ lb beef chuck
- ½ lb peeled, deveined shrimp
- ½ lb chicken thigh
- 1 wonton wrapper (for assembly, optional)
- Parchment paper
- 1 pork tenderloin
- ½ Tbsp. salt
- 1 Tbsp. 5-spice powder, divided in half
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup rice vinegar
- ½ cup ketchup
- 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp. sriracha
- ½ cup molasses
- 1 tsp. sesame oil
- 2 thick brioche (or other) rolls
- 1 head bok choy
- 6 shiitake mushrooms
- 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
- Duck skin
- 2 wonton wrappe
- In a food processor, add garlic, chili, ginger, scallions, cilantro, and onions and blend.
- Add all meats and blend until you have a nice ground meat mixture.
- Get your skillet hot and zip with oil. Form 3 thin burger patties on parchment paper. Flip onto skillet and cook until nice and browned on both sides. If you want to get crazy, put a patty on a wonton wrapper, fold over the extra 'paper' and fry up!
- Preheat oven to 450. Get a large skillet hot, zip with oil.
- Coat entire pork tenderloin with salt and ½ Tbsp. 5-spice powder. Sear in hot pan until nice and brown. Put tenderloin in oven for 20 minutes.
- Mix soy sauce, rice vinegar, ketchup, remaining ½ Tbsp. 5-spice powder, brown sugar, sriracha, molasses, and sesame oil in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then let cool.
- Chop up pork tenderloin and toss in the sauce. Set aside.
Chop up bok choy, shiitakes, and garlic. Add to hot sauté pan; finish off with a little soy sauce, rice vinegar and sesame oil.
Fry up duck skin and wonton wrappers until nice and crispy. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle a bit of salt.
- Heat buns in microwave for 20-30 seconds.
- Make a small cut in the side of each brioche roll and gently stuff with the pork tenderloin.
- Top stuffed bun with cooked burger patties, sautéed vegetables, crunch, and fresh cilantro. Zip with hoisin sauce and top with other stuffed bun. Now's the hard part-fitting this mouth-bangin' creation into your mouth!
