- 1 lb thinly sliced pork chops
- 2 tablespoons Chinese Five Spice Powder-I use Penzeys.
- 1 cup coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage and carrots
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced or diced red bell pepper
- 2 to 3 tablespoons sliced chives or scallions
- a few tablespoons diced red onion
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- black and white sesame seeds-optional
- about 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
- 4 King's Hawaiian Hamburger Buns
This Chinese Five Spice Pork Burger is what happens when a traditional Chinese Bao Bun meets a hamburger. The result is totally delicious!
- Toss your thinly sliced pork with the 5 spice powder. If you don’t have this spice blend, you can quickly make it using equal parts cinnamon, cloves, star anise, and ginger, but I recommend getting the Penzeys version. You will need it to make these burgers, so you might as well have it on hand.
- Place your coleslaw mix, carrots, bell peppers, red onions, chives or scallions, vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, and sesame seeds into a bowl and combine everything. I just love the colors! You don’t have to use the sesame seeds,but the contrast of the black seeds with the bright veggies really makes this sandwich look special.
- On the grill or in a skillet, toast your King’s Hawaiian Buns and set them aside. This is something I would not substitute. The subtle sweetness and softness of these rolls what made me think of a bao bun in the first place. These hamburger buns are fantastic with this!
- Cook the pork for about 3 minutes on each side. It should be very thin and will cook quickly.
- Slather the buns with hoisin.
- Place the pork on the buns and top with slaw.
