I love Thai food, and I adore barbecue. While experimenting one day, I came up with these beauties. They might not be 'authentic' but they sure hit the spot.

Outstanding! I fried them in a ridged frypan instead of grilling (inclement weather). The peanuts really added a good texture and the lime juice enhanced the flavor. I had to use dried basil instead of fresh but it didn't hurt anything much. I also used jalapeno pepper but went easy on it. If you are looking for something different in burgers don't miss this one.

I use ground turkey for this. I also add fresh cilantro and some hot chili sauce. I serve it with pita folds and Thai peanut sauce. This is fantastic!! Read More

GREAT IDEA!! No shallots on hand so we used green onions. I'm not sure if we will want plain hamburgers again! Read More

I am crazy about this recipe! So delicious! I did add an egg to the recipe (I thought it needed it bind the ingedients together) and made meatballs instead of burgers. Served with jasmine rice and satay sauce... it's a dream! Read More

These burgers are good but I really wouldn't compair them to "Thai". The lemon grass wasn't strong enough to give it that Thai flavor. (In order to get that taste you need vinegar). We followed the recipe exact and felt they were missing something nonetheless. My boyfriend added more onion and I added pepperjack cheese. All in all if you want a burger with a different taste then these will do just fine. Read More

IT was tasty but really didn't have much flavor. Don't get me wrong we both went back for seconds but really couldn't distinguish the Thai flavor until we chomped into the peanuts! Read More

I was looking for a recipe to use some of the lemon grass from my herb garden. These burgers were even better than I expected! I used ground turkey and some crushed red pepper flakes instead of fresh but otherwise followed recipe exactly. We topped them with garlic herb cheese and some chili sauce. Yum!! Read More

Really tasty! A nice twist on the typical burger. I think next time we'll put peanut sauce on the bun for something extra. We doubled up the fresh basil and the lemon grass - my son even liked them and he hates hamburger. Thanks for this creative recipe. Read More

I wasn't able to stay true to the recipe but even with our substitutes my boyfriend keeps making yummy noises and claimed that this burger would sell if we opened a burger shack haha. So it's a hit and we plan to make them again! Read More
