"The nutty smell of the sesame oil permeates the kitchen as these burgers are frying. While not authentically Asian, the taste distinctly hints at the flavors of the East. I created this recipe when I accidentally thawed out ground beef instead of chicken breast. Naturally, burgers were the quickest and easiest option. Serve in burger buns topped with teriyaki sauce Sriracha® sauce as condiments."

This has become a staple for us. I make it mini sized, and have it as side dish. *** DO NOT SKIP on sesame oil or soy sauce or garlic, these are the main flavor ingredient. Used ground turkey instead. Added a little jalapeno, and breadcrumbs. Used parseley and onions instead green onions and water chesnut. Used real ginger and garlic. Made toping of sauted onion and mushroom on the same pan in the left over running juices.

I served these up on a Friday night recently. With the snow still on the ground, I fried them up on the stove. They were excellent! Everybody enjoyed them. I did not stray too far from the recipe, but I certainly did not measure out any ingredients either. They did not lack flavor as suggested by another reviewer. I always roll my burgers and then place them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before flattening and cooking. This helps them to stay together through cooking and enhances any flavors added...I was asked to make these again once barbecue season is back.

Course chop the water chestnuts. Otherwise this is the best burger I have ever had. Thanks for the recipe
