Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 20 mins

Grill: 5 mins

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 piece (1 inch) fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup EVOO
  • 1 bag  (14 oz.) coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped parsley
  • 4 soft kaiser rolls, split and toasted
Directions
  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high. In a medium bowl, mix together the beef, lemon zest, ginger, half of the garlic, 1 tsp. sugar and 1 tsp. salt. Shape into four 4-inch patties; refrigerate while you prepare the slaw.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup EVOO, the lemon juice and remaining 1 tsp. sugar. Stir in the coleslaw mix and parsley; season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a small skillet, heat the remaining 1/4 cup EVOO over medium heat. Add the remaining garlic and cook until golden, about 1 minute. Brush onto the cut side of each roll half.
  4. Place the patties on the grill and cook, turning once, until firm around the edges, about 5 minutes for medium. Place the patties on the roll bottoms and top with some slaw, if desired, and the roll tops. Serve the remaining slaw on the side.
Tip
  • Slice leftover fresh ginger and throw it into a jar with vinegar for a tasty addition to marinades and dressings.
