Asian Burger with Hoisin Ketchup & Garlic Chili Mayo


I love a good burger.  A juicy, flavor packed burger with plenty of sauce.  I want.  I crave. I need.

Although I love hamburgers, I have only posted one other burger recipe on my site and all too often find my self in the guilty pleasure fast food line gauntlet.   So these Asian Burgers were an especially good reminder at just how EASY burgers are to make at home and crazy fast to cook, not to mention 1000X more juicy and flavorful.

Showing how to make Asian Burger with Hoisin Ketchup & Garlic Chili Mayo by cooking the burgers in a pan.

The beef is mixed with splashes of soy, hoisin, lime juice, basil and ground ginger and of course garlic and red onion. I also added Asian Chili Garlic Sauce which if you don’t want to buy just for this recipe – trust me – you will use it all the time!  Its a staple at our house just like salt and pepper.  It definitely has a kick, so use 1 teaspoon for very kid friendly, 3 teaspoons if you like heat.  Either way, be prepared for a flavor explosion in every messy bite.

The hamburgers get slathered with Eats meets West Hoisin Ketchup which is simply ketchup whisked with hoisin, soy sauce and lime juice. And is simply delicious.

And to add a little crunch, whisk your angel hair coleslaw and matchstick carrots with rice vinegar, lime juice and a touch of sesame oil.  

Cocoon it all in a bun smothered with Chili Garlic Mayo because few foodie things are sadder than a dry bun.  And fewer bites are more cravilicious than Asian Burgers with Hoisin Ketchup and Garlic Chili Mayo.  That’s one burger that’s worth staying home for.

Asian Hamburgers

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1-3 teaspoons Asian chili garlic sauce (like Sambal Oelek)*
  • 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon quality hoisin (Lee Kum Kee or Kikkoman)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tsp EACH salt, dried basil, garlic pwdr
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Chili Garlic Mayonnaise

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Asian chili garlic sauce (optional)

Hoisin Ketchup

Asian Slaw

  • 4 cups angel hair coleslaw (may sub regular)**
  • 1 cup Matchstick carrots
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon reduced soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil


  • Add egg to a large bowl and gently whisk. Add all remaining Hamburger Ingredients and mix with your hands just until combined. Form mixture into 4 equal patties roughly the size of your hamburger buns then make a deep impression in the middle of each patty with your thumb (this will help the burgers cook evenly). Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together all of the Hoisin Ketchup ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate.
  • Whisk together Chili Garlic Mayonnaise ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate.
  • Add coleslaw and carrots to a large bowl and toss with remaining Asian Slaw ingredients. Refrigerate.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add patties and cook until brown and slightly charred on one side, about 3-4 minutes, flip, reduce heat to medium and cover. Cook an addition 3-5 minutes or to desired doneness.
  • Spread hamburger buns with Chili Garlic Mayonnaise, top with Asian hamburgers, top with Hoisin Ketchup followed by Asian Slaw and dig in!


*Use 3 teaspoons Asian Chili Garlic Sauce if you like heat, less if you don’t. **If using regular coleslaw you might need less as angel hair coleslaw tends to easily compress while regular coleslaw better holds its shape.

    Wow, I made this tonight and it was one delicious, juicy burger! I have added your recipe to my favorites list and will be making it again.
    I did leave out the egg and Panko bread crumbs, because I never add them to any burgers I make. I left all the other burger ingredients as written.

    I have made this recipe several times and do not use the egg or breadcrumbs because it’s not something I do when making burgers, made everything else as suggested and these burgers are always great. I serve with sweet potato fries and extra hoisin ketchup…yum!

    Delicious! The only thing I did different was use ground turkey! It was still amazing. I had 3 lbs and made two burgers for us and the rest into patties for future dinners. I did add a slice of havarti cheese and put on everything buns because that is what I had. Will of course do again! Thank you!
