The Six Scallion Dollar Man Burger
This recipe is from Season 5, Episode 15 of Bob’s Burgers.
The recipe needs to be started a little more than an hour in advance. You’ll need to soak the chopped scallions in a coconut-oil, sesame oil, and soy sauce mixture for an hour. The mixture will be a very weird consistency due to the coconut oil, but that’s okay!
Bok choy leaves are steamed in a steamer basked (or colander if you don’t have a steamer), and then patted dry.
The burgers are made with just regular ground beef, but some ginger is mixed into each one as well. Note that the ingredients claim you’ll need 1/2 tsp. of grated ginger, but you’ll actually need a full tsp. The instructions later say to add 1/2 tsp. of ginger to EACH burger.
Once the burgers are cooked and the bok choy leaves are ready, the final step is to heat up the scallion mixture in a saucepan and add honey!
The burgers are built as follows: bottom bun, bok choy, burger, scallions, and top bun.
There was A LOT of liquid in my scallions, so I ended up just scooping out the scallions themselves the best I could and not adding all that extra liquid. The recipe doesn’t clearly say what to do about that, so I took my best guess.
These were (unsurprisingly) very good! It has a very Asian-like flavor to it, and I particularly liked the coconut-sesame scallions. My husband, being a HUGE fan of sesame oil, gives this a 10/10.
This burger recipe wasn’t particularly challenging, though it was a little more time consuming than a lot of the others I’ve tested so far.
You will need scallions, coconut oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, bok choy, ground beef, ginger, honey, and burger buns.
