Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef, preferably chuck
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for the grill
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 6 scallions
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil, plus more for brushing
  • 4 sesame buns, split
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha (Asian chile sauce)
  • 12 thin slices cucumber
Directions

Preheat a grill to medium high. Form the beef into four 6-ounce patties, about 3/4 inch thick; press the center of each patty with your thumb to make a 1/2-inch-deep indentation. Season the patties on both sides with salt and pepper. Lightly brush the grill grates with vegetable oil, then grill the patties, indentation-side up, until marked on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Flip and cook until marked and slightly firm, about 3 more minutes for medium doneness. During the last minute of grilling, brush the patties with the hoisin sauce. Remove the patties to a plate and let rest 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, brush the scallions with sesame oil, season with salt and grill, turning occasionally, until charred and tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Cut into 4-inch pieces. Grill the buns, cut-side down, until lightly toasted, about 1 minute.

Mix the mayonnaise, Sriracha and sesame oil in a small bowl and spread on the buns. Top the bun bottoms with the cucumber, burger patties and scallions, then cover with the bun tops.
