Red Boat Burgers


1 1/2 lbs Ground Beef
1 1/2 Tablespoons Red Boat Fish Sauce
1 teaspoon fresh cracked Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Sugar
1 clove Garlic, smashed under a knife
4 Hamburger buns


Combine all ingredients together in a large metal bowl. Be careful not to overwork the meat. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least a half hour. Remove from fridge and place on counter, covered with wax paper in the bowl for 30 minutes.

Form meat into a fist-sized balls, then flatten into 4 patties.

Cook on a skillet or grill until internal temperature of at least 150 degrees is reached. (About 3 minutes per side for a 1/2" thick patty.)

Serve with your favorite condiments, but not so much that it will cover up the delicious umami of the burger. Try adding a thin slice of daikon for some crunch instead of an onion.

Makes 4 burgers.
