Thai Burgers with Plum Sauce and Spicy Slaw

I’ve slowly been working on a few recipes to go with my recap posts about our amazing trip to New Zealand, but I haven’t even started to go through all our pictures. The task just seems too overwhelming…but today I have a little teaser post – Thai turkey burgers inspired by the ones we enjoyed at Fergburger in the bungee jumping capital of the world, Queenstown! Queenstown is a beautiful resort town on the Southern Island of New Zealand with amazing skiing.

We arrived in Queenstown late one night after a long 5 hour drive and immediately headed to Fergburger, which had been recommended to us by multiple Kiwis during our trip. Mmm, the burgers really spot. And they’re also huge – see they were almost as big as my head! Apolinaras got a burger with a Thai plum sauce that I immediately became smitten with and it inspired today’s recipe. I gave mine a little twist and topped my burgers with a spicy slaw. Ok, back to sifting through all our pictures!

Thai Burgers with Plum Sauce and Spicy Slaw
Printable Recipe

Ingredients:

Spicy Slaw:
1/2 cucumber, coarsely grated
1 carrot, coarsely grated
1/2 cup thinly sliced roasted red peppers
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt

Plum Sauce:
1/3 cup plum jam
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced

Burger Patties:
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1/2 cup grated red onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt

Assembly:
6 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted

Directions:
To make the spicy slaw, mix shredded cucumber, carrot, and red pepper in a medium bowl. Mix rice vinegar, fish sauce, sugar, garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt in a small bowl. Pour dressing over veggies and stir well. Place in the fridge for an hour to allow the flavors to meld.

To make the plum sauce, mix plum jam, rice vinegar, and garlic in a small bowl and stir until smooth.

To make the burger patties, heat oven broiler. Place ground turkey, grated onion, garlic, and salt in a large bowl and gently mix all the ingredients together with your hands; form 6 burgers that are slightly larger than your buns. Place patties on a large cookie sheet and broil for 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until cooked through and no longer pink in the center.

To assemble the burgers, place a patty on top of the bottom half of each bun and evenly spread the plum sauce on top of each burger. Drain any excess liquid off the slaw and spread evenly on the burgers. Add the burger tops and serve. Makes 6 burgers.

  1. that burger looks huge!! well, the original 😉 I’m much more a fan of your size, they sound fantastic. I’ve never had plum sauce, but it seems like something I’d adore!

  2. That sounds really good with the plum sauce. Going through vacation pictures always feels like a lot of work to me… and makes me wish I were back on vacation!

  3. Sounds incredible! I make some Thai Peanut Turkey Burgers and it’s one of our favorite recipes, so I’m completely on board with the Asian-fusion burgers. Can’t wait to hear more about your trip!

  4. I love when travel inspires great recipes. In general I find that it’s easier to pay attention to food when I am traveling and when I get home I really, really want to recreate what I’ve had so the trip lives on longer. I’ve been meaning to recreate a fantastic pizza I had while in SF for the longest time. Perhaps it needs to come about soon.
