Mom's Cooking Club Lesson: This recipe calls for shredded red cabbage and shredded carrot. I bought coleslaw mix and used 1/2 cup in the slaw topping along with the romaine lettuce. It was very convenient and worked perfectly. Also, for the whole wheat bread crumbs used in the burgers, I just cut a small amount of bread from a whole wheat baguette and chopped it up in small pieces in my blender.

I heard about this weekly challenge from Beef. It's What's for Dinner through several food blogs. I went on the Facebook fan page of Beef. It's What's for Dinner to get more details. So, I decided to take on this challenge of making a selected recipe, reviewing it and posting about it here as well as on the Facebook fan page.
My family and I love a good hamburger. I have never made a burger with these flavors. Boy, am I glad I took on this challenge. We loved the Asian flavors from the Sesame Soy Mayo and the Slaw Topping. The mayonnaise had the perfect spice to it from the ground red pepper while the slaw on top gave great crunch and the perfect amount of acid from the rice vinegar. I used lean ground beef and was happy that it didn't turn out dry. I loved the fact that you can still have a wonderful hamburger but with a healthier cut of ground beef.
