Tiger Burger Recipe
By: Chef Cristian Feher
There are a million ways to spice your burgers - this is one of my favs. It's flavorful, tangy and very mildly spicy. But most importantly, this recipe makes for a juicy meat patty thanks to a 50/50 mixture of pork and beef. If you can picture a pig and a cow walking through a sunny field hoof-in-hoof, this is what these burgers taste like - with the addition of a tiger!
Tiger Sauce can be found in the hot sauce section of your local supermarket. It's a mildly spicy, tangy, and sweet sauce made mostly of tamarind, which is a sour fruit found in Asia and South America.
The side dish pictured above is grilled sweet potatoes. Simply boil some sweet potatoes in salted water until you can stab them with a fork. Drain, run under cold water for 10 minutes, drain again. I like to do this the day before and refrigerate over night. I cut them in thick slices and grill them on the BBQ with some olive oil and dried herbs until nice grill marks form on them (same length of time it takes you to cook the burgers). My favorite dip for these sweet potatoes is mayonnaise mixed with a little curry powder and a drop of dijon mustard!
