Chinese Style Pork Brioche Burger

Welcome to my taste sensation, Chinese style pork brioche burger. I would love to make this for you myself, and sit, and watch as you take your first mouthful. It’s so good! All the components come together to make a fabulous, soft burger that just melts in your mouth.

I served the burger on brioche buns because I am loving brioche burgers at the moment. The buns just disappear in your mouth leaving nothing to interfere with the full flavour of the burger patty. The burger patties are made really tasty by mincing garlic, ginger, chilli, onion and spring onion in a food processor and then mixing these flavours into the pork mince, with a bit of sweet soy sauces and Chinese five spice. The result is a flavour filled burger which is just magic in the mouth!

I promise this is not your average burger.  If you make this burger I’d love you to serve it with the same smoky BBQ sauce I’ve mentioned in the recipe. I really feel that it lifts the burger to another level.

Something else very pleasing about this recipe is that it’s quick to make! The meal comes together in well under 30 minutes, so it’s actually quicker than running out to buy a takeaway burger.

The final component of this burger is the slaw.  I’ve used a pre-packaged dry slaw and add half a bunch of fresh coriander (cilantro) to keep with the Asian flavour profile. I used a small amount of garlic aioli instead of coleslaw dressing. I didn’t want a lot of dressing getting in the way of the pork burger’s flavour.

    Burger Patty
  • 1kg pork mince (not lean)
  • 1 medium onion (160gm)
  • 25gm peeled garlic cloves
  • 2 shallots (spring onion roughly chopped)
  • 10gm peeled ginger
  • 2 red chillies
  • 1/4 cup Ketchup Manis (Sweet Soy Sauce)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp chinese five spice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Burger
  • Brioche Buns (enough for 1 each)
  • Slaw
  • 1 Pkg Dry Slaw
  • 1/2 bunch fresh coriander (cilantro)
  • 1/2 cup aioli
  • Fountain Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce (to serve)


  1. Add the ginger, garlic, onion and shallot and chilli to a food processor and process until finely chopped.
  2. Transfer the processed onion mixture to a large bowl.
  3. Add the mince, egg, bread crumbs, Chinese 5 spice, Ketchup Manis and salt and pepper to the onion mixture.
  4. Combine all the burger ingredients by hand until fully incorporated.
  5. Form the mince into 10 balls of equal size. Flatten them out onto a tray. I use a large cookie cutter the size of my bun as a size guide.
  6. Refrigerate or freeze until you are ready to cook the burgers
  7. Fry the burgers in oil. Once the burgers are cooked on both sides serve on the brioche bun with the coleslaw and some smokey BBQ Sauce.

So there you have it, my Chinese Style Pork Burger. Great for a week night meal. Dinner on the table in no time by utilising convenience supermarket items.

  5. What a great burger! We have a local restaurant that makes “pot sticker” burgers. The burger is somewhat similar to this, and they serve it with the same dipping sauce that’s often served with pot stickers. This is good stuff — thanks!

  6. Oh my gosh, Julie, this truly is a taste explosion! Love all these fun flavors and the way you’ve combined them. I’m with you on brioche buns and there really is something amazing about creating the perfect burger, isn’t there? We are always striving to do that. LOVE the way you changed up the coleslaw dressing. Fantastic!
