As soon as the temps drop, we’re all about embracing the season. For me, Fall means flavor- specifically savory saucy meaty comfort food.
Usually, that means I conform to one of two flavor profiles- down home Southern style, or saucy Asian flavored dishes.
I cannot tell you how stoked I was, when I was in my local Walmart, to discover that P.F. Chang’s Home Menu® Sauces had added to their amazing line of sauces.
We’ve used several of their yummy line before. It includes some of our favorite flavors, specifically Teriyaki, Sesame, and a fantastic Kung Pao. Imagine my delight when we found they’d added Soy & Mongolian versions to the mix.
You know one of each was going into my cart- no questions asked. I mean for me it’s a no-brainer. In one bottle I get authentic Asian flavor that I can incorporate into any recipe I see fit, without adding any complicated steps for myself.
For me, that’s just smart shopping.
For us, there’s nothing better than diving into a hearty burger when it’s cold outside. It’s just so comforting. It tastes like home, something Mama & Grandma made.
But what about a burger that takes the best of old school, and gives it a new twist? Combining a family favorite with a saucy finish from a few key ingredients and a new marinade.
Luckily, it’s easy to get just that (and more) in one burger. A burger that will totally transform your taste buds. The secret ingredient? NEW P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu Mongolian Sauce! And, of course, a few finishing touches.
Tender, juicy homemade Asian spiced beef patties are marinated in the Mongolian flavored sauce before being pan fried and placed on a fluffy, buttery brioche buns topped with a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
Topped with a sweet, slightly tangy Asian style slaw, these Mongolian Barbecue Burgers with Asian Slaw are slathered with a hoisin ketchup and sandwiched between buns covered in a garlic chili mayo.
It’s a mind blowing flavor combination that makes a filling, cozy burger with a new twist on an old family favorite.

To Make The Burgers
- In a large bowl, add all of the burger ingredients and use your hands to mix well. Shape the mixture into 4 patties, roughly the size of your buns. Make a deep thumb print in the middle of each patty (to help them cook evenly), and refrigerate them for 15 minutes.
To Make The Asian Flavored Condiments
- In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ketchup ingredients. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to use.
- In another small bowl, whisk together the mayo ingredients. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to use.
To Make The Asian Slaw
- To a large bowl, add the slaw and carrots. Toss with the remaining ingredients, until mixed well. Refrigerate, until ready to use.
To Fix The Burgers
- In a large skillet, over medium high heat, heat the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the patties. Continue cooking until they're charred on one side, about 3 minutes. Flip the patties, and char the other side, for the same amount of time.
- Cover the pan and cook an additional 3-5 minutes, or until your desired done-ness.
- Spread the tops of the burgers with melted butter. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Let sit.
- Spread the inside of the buns liberally with the mayo. Top bottom buns with burgers. Spread the ketchup liberally out over top. Add a generous heaping helping of Asian slaw, top with the other side of the bun, and enjoy!
