TOGARASHI BEEF BURGERS
TEST KITCHEN TIP
Shichimi togarashi is an aromatic Japanese table condiment typically used as a topping for soups and noodle dishes. While there are many variations, most blends include a combo of red chili peppers, pepper, sesame seeds, dried orange zest, nori flakes, prickly ash pods, hemp seeds and poppy seeds.
Tear bread into bite-size pieces. In bowl, using hands, mash bread, broth and miso paste until fine paste. Crumble in beef; add garlic, ginger and shichimi togarashi. Stir to mix. Shape into six ½-inch thick patties. (Make-ahead: Layer between parchment paper in airtight container; refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
Place patties on greased grill over medium-high heat; brush with half of the glaze. Close lid and grill, turning once and basting with remaining maple glaze, until instant-read thermometer inserted sideways in patties reads 160°F, about 8 minutes. Top each patty with cheese; grill until melted, about 1 minute. Serve in buns spread with Best Burger Sauce and topped with Bánh Mì Pickles (if using).
