With all the rain and gloom, I was craving some comfort food...a W & M Bar-B-Q burger.
Inspired by a recipe I found in the Hawaiian Electric Cookbook, I marinated some hamburger and made sliders.
makes 4 sliders
1/4 pound (total) ground beef & pork
1 tablespoon shoyu
1 tablespoon sugar
several grinds of pepper
1/2 clove garlic, grated
little nub of ginger, grated
1/2 teaspoon sesame seed oil
4 walnut rolls (or your favorite)
Mix the shoyu, sugar, pepper, garlic, ginger and sesame oil together, this is the marinade
Massage the marinade into your ground beef pork mixture and let it sit in the refrig for at least half an hour or overnight.
Divide the mixture into 4, roll into balls and then flatten out into patties
In a non-stick pan, cook these to your liking on medium heat
While the burgers are cooking, cut your rolls and toast them, if you wish
After your rolls are toasted, place the lettuce on top
When you sliders are cooked, put them atop the lettuce and add some mayo
NOTES: I think marinating the meat overnight made the burgers really juicy! After cooking these up, I had these with some rosé and they hit the spot!
I'm making these again, next time, I'm adding cheese...
