Crunchy Coconut and Lime Burgers Recipes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded dried coconut
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cream of coconut
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons cream of coconut
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded dried coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 hamburger buns, split

Directions

  1. Combine the beef, 1/2 cup coconut, cilantro, egg, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon cream of coconut, soy sauce, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in a bowl until well mixed. Form into 4 patties, and set aside.
  2. Stir together the mayonnaise with 2 teaspoons of cream of coconut and 1 tablespoon of cilantro; set aside. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in 1 cup of coconut and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook and stir until the coconut has turned golden brown. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate.
  4. Cook the burgers on the preheated grill to your desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. Spread both cut sides of the hamburger buns with the cilantro mayonnaise. Place the cooked burgers on the bottom buns, sprinkle with the toasted coconut, and serve.
