Sriracha has become a very popular condiment in recent years, for clearly delicious reasons and today we’re going to make a Sriracha burger. Made from a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt; Sriracha is named after the coastal city of Si Racha, in eastern Thailand. It’s going to be the inspiration for our Rooster Sriracha burger.
To make the burger extra delicious we’re going to mix some stir fry elements in with our Sriracha flavoring. We’ll cut up some red & green peppers, cilantro, and some onions and fry them up with some oil.
We’re going to go all out with the Sriracha, mixing it in the burger meat and making a sauce to top off the burger. For the burger meat we’ll mix in fresh garlic, soy sauce, and Sriracha. Then we’ll top it off with some pepper jack cheese and a sauce with Sriracha, mayo, and soy sauce.
I’ve layered all this goodness on a baked ciabatta bun. This rooster will wake you right up!
- 1/4 Cup Mayo
- 1 Tbsp Sriracha
- 1 Tsp Lemon Juice
- 1/4 Tsp Soy Sauce
- 1 White Onion
- 1 Red Pepper
- 1 Green Pepper
- 1 Tbsp Cilantro
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 2 Lbs Ground Chuck Beef 80% lean / 20% fat
- 4 Cloves Garlic

- Mix mayo, Sriracha, lime and soy sauce together in a small bowl and set aside.
- Slice onion, red pepper, and green pepper into strips. Chop cilantro.
- Heat olive oil in a pan and add peppers and onions. Salt and pepper to flavor. After a few minutes add the cilantro. Cook until slightly soft.
- Wrap in a piece of aluminum foil to keep warm. You can also place this on the grill for the last couple minutes of burger cooking to keep them hot.
- Get your grill/pan/etc hot. Optionally, turn on oven to 400 degrees to heat ciabatta buns.
- Dice garlic cloves, mix with salt, pepper, Sriracha, and soy sauce in a small bowl. Mix with ground beef, but avoid over handling.
- Divide beef into 8oz (1/2 lb) portions (or you can use smaller 6oz portions). Flatten into patties that are about 1/2 inch larger than the buns.
- Put a thumbprint in the middle of the patty so it doesn’t puff up when cooking.
- If you're heating up the ciabatta buns, place them in the oven for 6-8 min.
- Grill your burgers about 4min on the first side.
- Flip burgers and immediately add cheese. Cook until you reach the correct temp (140F for medium), usually about 2 to 4 minutes.
- Place stir fry on bottom of bun, then add burger and finally the sauce. Enjoy!
