I’m not usually into burgers but this recipe is something else! Perfect blend of Asian flavours within a soft juicy burger. Hubby made the brioche buns, and we served them with potato wedges and onion rings. Can’t wait to make them again. I believe this recipe would also work with turkey or beef mince, and we’ll be finding out soon!

Just finished eating my burger and wouldn't eat it again unless there were a few tweaks such as less oyster sauce as I found the burger far too salty and that is wasn't served to my as my husband wouldn't have been impressed! Just glad I didn't add sweet chilli sauce on top of it as it would have ben totally edible with chilli flakes already in the burger. I followed the recipe to the letter so bitterly disappointed with result
