It’s What’s for Dinner Wednesdays. I was asked, along with a few other bloggers, to participate in a recipe challenge hosted by Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner. The recipe for this week is East Meets West Burgers. I altered the recipe just a bit, using tortillas instead of buns. I also took advantage of a jar of Hoisin Sauce to flavor the burgers, cutting down on the number of ingredients.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 lb. lean ground beef
- 4-5 Tbs. Hoisin Sauce, plus more to top burgers
- 1 cup slaw mix
- 1 tsp. rice vinegar
- 1 tsp. vegetable oil
- large flour tortillas
In a bowl, combine the Hoisin Sauce and ground beef, mixing well with your hands. Form into small patties. I made 6 small (slider size) burgers with this. Grill until done.
Mix the oil and vinegar into the cup of slaw mix. To serve, spread Hoisin Sauce in the middle of a flour tortilla. Place a burger on top. Add slaw and fold the tortilla over, placing it with the folds down on the plate. Cut this diagonally. It’s a bit like a giant pot sticker or dumpling.
With the remaining slaw mix, I made Hawaiin Cole Slaw. This was a perfect accompaniment to the burgers.
For participating in this recipe challenge, NCBA sent me this Beef Grilling Gift Bag.

I love the flavor of Hoisin Sauce, but never thought to make a burger with it! Can’t wait to give this a try.
I made these for dinner tonight and almost followed the recipe exactly. Your substitutions sound great!
