Asian-Style Mushroom Blended Burger

International Burger Day is an annual event celebrated on May 28th, where burger enthusiasts from all over the world come together to indulge in one of their all-time favorite foods.

Mushrooms are an excellent addition to any burger, as they can elevate the flavor profile and add a unique texture to the dish. These earthy vegetables are a great source of umami, the fifth taste that is often described as savory and rich, making them the perfect ingredient to enhance the taste of a burger patty.

Makes 4 burgers


400 grams Beef Burger Mince (80/20 fat ratio)
400 grams mixed Portabella and Portabellini mushrooms, finely diced
¼ Cup Panko Bread Crumbs
2 tablespoons Oyster Sauce
3 tablespoons Ketjap Manis (Sweet Soy Sauce)
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon white pepper
½ teaspoon salt
1 large egg
A little oil for frying


4 Burger Buns, toasted (Sesame Seed buns are great for this burger)
Asian Slaw Mix (green cabbage, red cabbage, carrots & coriander)


For the Burger Patties:

  1. Combine all burger patty ingredients in a large bowl and mix by hand ensuring spices
    well distributed
  2. Form 4 burger patties and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes
  3. Grill or Fry burger patties (suggest medium) ensuring caramelization on searing

Chef’s tips

  1. Great served with Asian Slaw Salad, Atjar Tjampoer (Sweet & Sour Vegetable Pickle)
    and hand-cut potato wedges tossed in rosemary salt
  2. Beef mince can be replaced with Ostrich mince for a leaner, healthier option
