From the Test Kitchen

Tonight, we’re combining some of our favorite Japanese and Chinese ingredients to give these burgers exciting depth of flavor. We’re packing juicy beef with potent, barbecue-like hoisin sauce and shiitake mushrooms. (When dried, shiitakes offer more concentrated umami flavor—all you’ll have to do is soak them in hot water before using them.) Our finishing touches are ribbons of mild bok choy and a savory-sweet condiment of mayonnaise and delicate white miso.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. In a heatproof bowl, combine the mushrooms and 1 cup of hot water; let stand for at least 10 minutes. Halve the sweet potato lengthwise; cut each half into 3 equal-sized wedges. Peel and mince the garlic. Cut off and discard the root end of the scallion; thinly slice, separating the white bottom and green top. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; thinly slice the leaves and stems crosswise. Halve the buns. In a bowl, combine the miso paste and mayonnaise; season with salt and pepper to taste.
