Thai Juan On Burgers

I wanted to try something a little bit different, that mixed Asian and Mexican. The result was a hit at home. Hope you enjoy it too!


Thai-style peanut sauce:
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons soy sauce
5 teaspoons rice vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon dried cilantro leaves
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne
2 1/4 pounds ground chuck
5 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
5 teaspooons Chipotle Pepper Sauce
3/4 teaspoon dried cilantro leaves
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
olive oil, for brushing on the grill rack
6 burrito-sized, flour tortillas


~ Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium-high. ~ To make the peanut sauce, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, cilantro and cayenne in a mini food processor and pulse until well-mixed but still spreadable in consistancy. Set aside. ~ To make the patties, combine the chuck, sesame oil, pepper sauce, cilantro, salt, pepper and chili powder in a large bowl. Handling the meat as little as possible, mix well. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form into patties. ~ When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with olive oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook, turning once, until done to your preference, 5 to 7 minutes on each side for medium. While the burgers are cooking, stack the tortillas together and wrap in aluminum foil. During the last 3 minutes of cooking, place foil package containing tortillas on the outer edges of the rack to warm through. ~ To assemble the burgers, on each tortilla, spread 1/6 of the peanut sauce in the center. Place burger on top of the peanut sauce ane fold tortilla up and around burger, wrap-style and serve.
