In this summertime recipe, we’re serving up our burgers with extra flare. Within these pork patties are fresh ginger, nutty sesame oil and hoisin sauce (a favorite in Chinese cooking, similar in flavor to American barbecue sauce). We’re topping the burgers with seasonal, juicy tomato and cilantro. And as a condiment, we’re combining mayo with a little more hoisin, cutting the mayo’s savory richness with tangy-sweet notes. A salad of lightly-marinated cucumber and red onion completes the dish with refreshing flavor—and plenty of crunch.
