1/2 head red cabbage, thinly sliced

4 limes, juiced 

2 tablespoons sriracha

1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning

2 fresh mangos 

1 bunch scallions, green and white parts, thinly sliced 

4 sprigs mint, leaves torn 


2 pounds ground beef

3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce 

1 tablespoon sriracha

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger 

3 cloves garlic, finely grated

1 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

6 brioche hamburger buns, toasted 

Vegetable oil, as needed 

Mayonnaise, as needed 

6 leaves green leaf lettuce 

1 avocado, peeled and thinly sliced 


  1. For the slaw: Toss the cabbage with the lime juice, sriracha, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  2. Cut the mangos into spears. Reserve 12 spears for your burgers. Chop the remaining spears for your slaw. Add them to the slaw just before serving along with the scallions and mint and toss to finish.
  3. For the burgers: Combine the ground beef, teriyaki sauce, sriracha, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Mix with your hands until combined. Form into 6 patties roughly 3/4-inch thick and 4 inches in diameter.
  4. Brush a grill, grill pan or skillet with vegetable oil and heat on medium-high. When nice and hot, add the patties and cook for about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Take them off the heat.
  5. To build the burgers: Spread mayonnaise on the bottom bun. Season with salt and pepper. Place a lettuce leaf on top of the seasoned mayo and top it with a patty, 2 slices of avocado, 2 spears of the reserved mango and the bun lid. Repeat with the 5 other burgers. Serve the slaw on the side.
