China Moon Cafe Wonton Burgers















Trans-fat Free, Low Carb, Sugar-Free


¼ cup scallions, spring or green onions
plus 2 tsp, sliced
¼ cup cilantro
or chinese chives, chopped
1 ½ tablespoons ginger root
fresh, finely minced
2 ½ tablespoons garlic
finely minced
¼ cup soy sauce, tamari
plus 1 tsp
1 ½ tablespoons rice wine
or sherry
1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 ½ tablespoons hot chili pepper oil
¼ cup chicken broth
3 pounds pork shoulder
coarsely ground
2 each bread, french baguette
each cut crosswise, into 4 equal portions
1 x peanut oil
1 x dijon mustard


In a large bowl, combine the green onion, cilantro, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, rice wine or sherry, salt, pepper, chile oil, and stock and mix well.

Add the pork and stir in one direction with your hands or a large spoon just until the mixture can be thoroughly blended.

Do not overcook the meat.

(At this point the mixture can be sealed airtight and refrigerated overnight. The flavors will actually enlarge. Bring to room temperture before cooking.)

Handling the meat mixture as little as possible to avoid compacting it, divide it into 8 equal portions and form the portions into rectangles to firm the bread.

Brush a heavy skillet with a film of oil. Remember that the pork will render some of its own fat, so you'll need only minimal oil for cooking.

Place the pan over high heat and heat it as hot as possible.

Add the patties and sear, turning once, until well browned on both sides.

Reduce the heat and cook until done to your preference.

Cut the French bread lengthwise and spread the cut surfaces of the baguette portions with mustard and enclose the patties inside.
