Directions

  1. Make quick pickled cucumbers by tossing cucumbers with rice wine vinegar and salt. Let stand for 30 min.

  2. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix mayonnaise and Sriracha hot sauce. Cover, keep chilled. In a large bowl, prepare slider patties by mixing ground beef, green onion, egg, breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the hoisin sauce, rice wine vinegar and salt. Divide into 12 portions. Shape into 12 (1/2-in./1-cm thick) patties.

  3. Grill patties on barbecue preheated to medium-high heat for 4 to 5 min. per side, or until cooked through. Baste with remaining hoisin sauce near end of grilling.

  4. Drain off excess liquid from cucumbers. Assemble burgers in slider buns with Quick Pickled Cucumbers and Sriracha Mayo.
