Satay Sliders

Peanut butter lovers will not be able to resist this novel chicken or turkey burger with Asian seasonings.

Ingredients

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup apple juice, apple cider or pineapple juice
  • 3 tablespoons Tamari (dark soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon Asian chili-garlic sauce or Sriracha

For the sliders:

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey or chicken
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated or finely chopped
  • 1 1 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger root, grated or finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for coating
  • 8 slider-size soft rolls, such as Pepperidge Farm brand, or brioche dinner rolls, split

Toppings:

  • Shredded cabbage or iceberg lettuce
  • Sliced chili peppers, such as Fresnos, or thinly sliced radishes
  • Mint or cilantro leaves

Preparation

Pre-heat an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium-high. Heat the peanut butter to soften it in the microwave, in a small pot over medium heat or on the grill. Stir in the juice (or cider) to sweeten, the Tamari for salt and the chili-garlic sauce for heat.


Mix the meat with the scallions, garlic and ginger; season with salt and pepper. Form the meat into eight patties and coat with a little oil. Grill, turning once, until cooked through, 6-8 minutes. Douse with lots of satay sauce and serve on the rolls with the toppings of your choice.
