Easy Asian Fusion Burgers

These easy Asian fusion burgers are a fusion between Chinese and American flavors. I did not add ginger because of my family's taste but I think 1 teaspoon might be a good add-in. Make it keto by chopping up the burger and adding it to a low-carb tortilla.

4 burgers


  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • ¼ cup General Tso sauce

  • 1 ½ teaspoons minced garlic

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef or chuck

  • ½ teaspoon soy sauce, or to taste

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • 4 hamburger buns, split

  • ¼ cup chopped romaine lettuce, or to taste


  1. Heat a cast iron pan over medium-high heat.

  2. Combine mayonnaise, cilantro, General Tso sauce, garlic, crushed red pepper, onion powder, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, and salt in a small mixing bowl; stir well.

  3. Form ground beef into 4 patties; place into the hot pan. Add 3 to 4 drops of soy sauce to each burger; season with additional black pepper to taste. Cook patties until browned and no longer pink in the centers, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of each patty should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  4. Prepare hamburger buns by adding a generous amount of mayonnaise mixture and romaine to each. Add cooked patties to buns and serve.
