- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 4 teaspoons scallions, cut into 1/8-inch rings
- 1 cup chopped garlic
- 2 Thai bird chiles, minced
- 1 teaspoon cumin powder
- 2 bunches scallions, cut into 3-inch long pieces
- 8 shiitake mushroom caps
- 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
- 4 sesame hamburger buns
Place the beef in a bowl, add with curry powder, sugar, cilantro, scallions, garlic, chiles, cumin, salt, and pepper, and mix well. Form into 4 (8-ounce) patties. Place patties on grill and grill to desired doneness. Place scallion pieces and shiitake caps on the grill and brush with the teriyaki sauce and grill until well charred.
Serve burgers on sesame buns topped with grilled scallion and shiitakes and more teriyaki sauce, if desired.
