Ingredients
  • Dressing:
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh Thai basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Patties:
  • 1/4 cup Vietnamese fish sauce (nuoc mam)
  • 4 teaspoons jaggery (palm sugar) or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha or other Asian hot chili sauce
  • 2 pounds freshly ground pork
  • 1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground star anise
  • Vegetable oil, for brushing the grill rack
  • 6 French rolls, split
  • 6 interior butter lettuce leaves
Directions
  • Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium high.

  • For the Dressing: combine the mayonnaise, basil, cilantro, green onions, and lime juice in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

  • For the Patties: combine the fish sauce, jaggery, and chili sauce in a medium bowl. Add the pork, peanut butter, ginger, garlic, and star anise and blend loosely with a fork. Form into 6 equal patties the approximate dimensions of the rolls, making a slight depression in the middle of the patties to compensate for the tendency to bulge during cooking.

  • Brush the grill rack with oil. Grill the patties with the grill top closed for 4 minutes. Turn and grill until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the patties registers 160 degrees F, about 4 minutes longer.

  • During the last 2 minutes of grilling the patties, place the rolls, cut side down, on the grill to toast.

  • To assemble the burgers: spread the roll bottoms with a thin layer of dressing, followed by a lettuce leaf. Add the patties and top with generous dollops of the dressing. Add the roll tops.
