Orange Beef Burger

To be honest, this burger was a bit of a joke when I made it.  The carbs on carbs is probably vaguely amusing to anyone who knows anything about cooking.  AS IT TURNED OUT....... I couldn't believe how successful it was!  I had modified my orange chicken sauce to marinade and cook the burger in.  Additionally, I recommend saving any extra sauce and dip the burger in it.  It is fantastically savory and sweet.

For 1 Orange Beef Burger you will need:
1 Bun
1 Burger patty
1/2 Cup cooked sticky white rice
4 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
3 Tbsp Orange Marmalade (skins removed)
1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar

1. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, orange marmalade, pepper flakes, and brown sugar.  Set aside.

2. Prepare rice and set aside, keeping warm.

3. Sear burger patty, either in a pan or on the grill.

4. Reduce heat and add orange soy sauce mixture to a frying pan and cook burger on low heat.  I would recommend poking a few holes in the burger to allow sauce inside when flipping burger.

5. Serve on a bun topped with a mound of cooked rice with excess sauce on the side.
