Ramen Burger Bowl with Spicy Slaw

What better way to top off a bowl of comforting ramen noodles than with a tasty meat patty? And let’s just really take it over the top by adding a rich, gooey fried egg! The unique Cluck ‘n Moo blend of lean ground beef and ground chicken was the perfect choice to mix with tasty shiitake mushrooms and hints of oyster sauce and sesame oil. Water chestnuts add nice crunch to this delicious, grilled burger. The spicy slaw adds a bracing, yet refreshing, note to this bowl o’ goodness.

Serves/makes 4

Spicy Slaw

4 Tablespoons peanut oil, divided
3 slices (about 1/4”) fresh ginger, peeled
2 cloves garlic, mashed and peeled
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
3 Tablespoons mirin
1/4 cup light soy sauce
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon sambal oelek
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
Coarse salt
White pepper
3 cups napa cabbage, washed, dried, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup fresh snow peas, thinly sliced
1/4 cup green onions, chopped, plus more for garnish
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped, plus more for garnish

Make dressing by placing two tablespoons peanut oil, ginger, and garlic in a saucepan. Heat on low/medium-low, gently infusing oil with ginger and garlic. Ginger and garlic should just sizzle, but not cook or burn. After ginger and garlic start to brown (about 2-3 minutes), remove and discard. Remove pan from heat. Cool slightly, and carefully stir in brown sugar, mirin, soy sauce, sesame oil, and sambal. Whisk in remaining peanut oil, vinegar, and season to taste with salt and white pepper. Chill for one hour.

In a large bowl, combine cabbage, carrots, snow peas, green onions and cilantro. Toss with dressing and chill, covered, in refrigerator until ready to serve.
