Cilantro Burgers with Sriracha Mayo

Chopped cilantro flavors the beef, while whole sprigs take the place of the usual lettuce. Sriracha has rightfully become an all-purpose condiment--its sweet chile heat and its vinegar punch go well beyond burgers, perking up brothy soups, meat marinades, and dipping sauces.

Ingredients

  • 1

    pound 90% lean ground sirloin

  • 3

    tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • ¼

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Cooking spray

  • 4

    (1½-ounce) hamburger buns

  • 3

    tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 1

    tablespoon Sriracha

  • cup cilantro sprigs

Directions

1. Combine ground sirloin, chopped cilantro, salt, and pepper in a bowl; mix just until combined. Divide sirloin mixture into 4 equal portions, gently shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty (about 3 1/2 inches in diameter). 2. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; grill 4 minutes. Carefully turn patties; grill 4 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Remove patties from pan. Add buns, cut sides down, to pan; grill 1 minute or until toasted. 3. Combine mayonnaise and Sriracha in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture on bottom half of each bun; top each with 1 patty. Divide cilantro sprigs evenly among servings; top with top halves of buns.
