Prep

  1. Shallots / Garlic - Prep as directed and store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Green onions (for both burgers and mayo) - Chop and combine green and white parts. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  3. Make Sriracha mayo - Combine green onions (the portion for the mayo) with mayonnaise, Sriracha and lime juice. Taste and add more Sriracha if you’d like it spicier. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  4. Make burgers - Use hands to combine beef with garlic, green onions (the portion for the burgers), Worcestershire sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Form into 1" / 2.5cm thick patties, and make a depression in the center with your thumb (this will prevent them from rounding in the middle as they cook). Cover and refrigerate if not making right away. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  5. Cucumbers / Basil / Lettuce - Prep as directed. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  6. Make salad - Combine shallots with cucumbers, olive oil, vinegar, sugar and basil. Season with some salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to serve. (Can be done 1 day ahead)

Make

  1. If making burgers on the grill: Heat grill to 500F (260C) degrees. Brush grill grates with first portion of cooking oil and then place patties over direct heat. Grill on opposite sides for ~4 minutes each with cover closed and continue cooking until burgers reach an internal temperature of 165F (74C) degrees. Brush buns with second portion of cooking oil and toast on grill for the last 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. If making burgers on stovetop: Heat a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush pan with first portion of cooking oil and then place patties on heated oil. Cook burgers until they reach an internal temperature of 165F (74C) degrees, ~4 minutes on each side. Brush buns with second portion of cooking oil and place, cut-side down on skillet or pan. Toast until golden brown.
  3. Assemble burgers by spreading both halves of buns with Sriracha mayonnaise. Add burger patties and lettuce leaves.
  4. Serve burgers with cucumber salad on the side and enjoy!

We loved this a lot! My boyfriend said it's his favorite of the several CS burger recipes we've tried so far. Great flavors!

Really quick, easy, and tasty! Simple to make kid friendly because the spice is in the mayo.

Made this tonight (no buns). The burgers, sauce, and cucumber salad were all fabulous! I did double the oil and vinegar for the cucumbers...and them drizzled some of the mayo sauce over it as well.

Husband made this. The burgers were good; we used 'mini buns'. However, the cucumber salad was pretty basic, nothing special.
