WHY WE LOVE THIS DISH

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Halve the buns. Quarter, core, and thinly slice the pear. Thinly slice the cucumbers into rounds. In a large bowl, combine the sliced pear, sliced cucumbers, and sesame ginger dressing. Stir to coat. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

Cook & glaze the mushrooms
2 Cook & glaze the mushrooms

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced mushrooms and sliced shallot. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Add the soy-miso sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), vinegar, and as much of the togarashi as you'd like (you may have extra). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the mushrooms are coated. Transfer to a bowl. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

Cook the patties
3 Cook the patties

Place the beef in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to incorporate. Form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Flip the patties (carefully, as the oil may splatter) and evenly top with the cheese. Loosely cover the pan with foil. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the patties are browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a work surface. Carefully drain off and discard any excess oil. 

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 160°F for beef.

Toast the buns
4 Toast the buns

Working in batches, add the halved buns, cut side down, to the pan of reserved fond. Toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface.

Add the arugula to the bowl of dressed pear and cucumbers. Season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, sambal mayo, cooked patties, glazed mushrooms, and crispy onions. Serve the burgers with the salad on the side. Garnish the salad with the sesame seeds. Enjoy!
