Lean and Savory: Potsticker Burgers with Asian Slaw

Lean and Savory: Potsticker Burgers with Asian Slaw

First of all, did you notice that I did a little redesigning around the ol’ bloggy? As you may or may not know, I’m a graphic designer in real life so I really enjoy futzing around with the look of Mancktastic! It’s certainly not a finalized design, but I hope you’re enjoying the fresh fonts and more reading area : )

Now, on to dinner! Who doesn’t love the delicious filling of a potsticker? Delicious pork, savory sauces, and the delightful crunch of vegetables, all in a nice little packet for you to enjoy. This dish takes all of the great taste of potstickers and makes them leaner (and meaner) by forming them into a patty atop a tasty, fresh Asian slaw! This way, you get the delicious flavors of potstickers and their yummy sauces without the added hassle and carbohydrates of the wrappers.

 

Potsticker Burgers are a cinch to throw together and customize for your family. While Bill and I use cabbage slaw in this yummy dinner, you could use coleslaw mix for a wider range of veggies and color. You could also use turkey or chicken in place of, or in addition to, the ground pork of the burgers.
