  • 1 1/4 pounds Certified Angus Beef ® ground beef, 80% lean
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup shredded daikon radish (or use additional carrot if unavailable)
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced using a mandolin or by hand to yield about 24 slices
  • 1 1/2 cups cilantro leaves, picked from stems
  • 4 crusty French buns
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, 1-teaspoon salt, fish sauce, pepper, basil and coriander. Form into four equal patties (6-ounces each); refrigerate.
  2. Place shredded carrot and daikon radish in a heat proof bowl. In a small sauce pan bring vinegar, sugar, water and 1-teaspoon salt to a boil, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Pour this pickling liquid over carrots and sit at room temperature until cooled (about 20 minutes).
  3. Combine mayonnaise and sriracha; set aside.
  4. Grill burgers over medium-high heat until they reach an internal temperature of 160°F (about 4 minutes per side).
  5. Spread sriracha mayo on bottom bun, add pickled carrots then top with burger, cucumber, cilantro and top bun.
