  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. sriracha
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/3 c. mayonnaise
  • 2 c. slaw
  • 4 hamburger buns


  1. With your hands, form the beef into patties and season 'em all over with salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, whisk together oil, sweet chili sauce, sriracha, honey, and lime juice.

  2. In a separate bowl, combine half the chili sauce mixture you just made with the mayonnaise. Reserve remaining sauce for basting on burgers.

  3. Heat a grill pan, large skillet, or grill over medium-high heat. Throw your burgers on there and grill until charred, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook until cooked to your liking, about 4 minutes for medium, all while basting the burgers with the remaining chili sauce mixture throughout the process.

  4. Place the burgers on bottom buns and top with slaw and drizzle with the mayonnaise mixture from step 2. Place the top buns and serve immediately. Now that's a powerful burger.
