I love Thai food, and I adore barbecue. While experimenting one day, I came up with these beauties. They might not be ‘authentic’ but they sure hit the spot.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ pounds lean ground beef
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon grass, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 2 red chili peppers, seeded and minced
  • ¼ cup chopped peanuts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 limes

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat grill for high heat.
  2. 2 In a large bowl, mix together ground round, bread crumbs, lemon grass, shallot, chili peppers, and peanuts. Season with salt and pepper. Form into patties. If you are making these ahead of time, do not add peanuts until you are ready to grill.
  3. 3 Lightly oil grate, and place burgers on grill. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove from grill, and sprinkle burgers with lime juice.

  1. I wasn't able to stay true to the recipe but even with our substitutes my boyfriend keeps making yummy noises and claimed that this burger would sell if we opened a burger shack haha. So it's a hit and we plan to make them again!
  2. I was looking for a recipe to use some of the lemon grass from my herb garden. These burgers were even better than I expected! I used ground turkey and some crushed red pepper flakes instead of fresh but otherwise followed recipe exactly. We topped them with garlic herb cheese and some chili sauce. Yum!!
  3. Didn't like them. Nor did my family
  4. IT was tasty but really didn't have much flavor. Don't get me wrong we both went back for seconds but really couldn't distinguish the Thai flavor until we chomped into the peanuts!
  5. I am crazy about this recipe! So delicious! I did add an egg to the recipe (I thought it needed it bind the ingedients together) and made meatballs instead of burgers. Served with jasmine rice and satay sauce... it's a dream!
  6. Really tasty! A nice twist on the typical burger. I think next time we'll put peanut sauce on the bun for something extra. We doubled up the fresh basil and the lemon grass - my son even liked them and he hates hamburger. Thanks for this creative recipe.
  7. I use ground turkey for this. I also add fresh cilantro and some hot chili sauce. I serve it with pita folds and Thai peanut sauce. This is fantastic!!
  8. GREAT IDEA!! No shallots on hand so we used green onions. I'm not sure if we will want plain hamburgers again!
  9. Outstanding! I fried them in a ridged frypan instead of grilling (inclement weather). The peanuts really added a good texture and the lime juice enhanced the flavor. I had to use dried basil instead of fresh but it didn't hurt anything much. I also used jalapeno pepper but went easy on it. If you are - Read more ...
