1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons lemon grass, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons minced shallots
2 red chili peppers, seeded and minced
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
salt and pepper to taste
1 Preheat grill for high heat.
2 In a large bowl, mix together ground round, bread crumbs, lemon grass, shallot, chili paste, and peanuts. Season with salt and pepper. Form into patties. If you are making these ahead of time, do not add peanuts until you are ready to grill.
