Sate burgers (recipe in the comments)
Homemade peanut sauce
Grilled zucchini and red peppers with peanut soy dipping sauce
I know we haven't made this recipe for my mom before, because we've never made it for ourselves!!!! We love burgers of all types and make a wide variety. Our love of sate and other Indonesian inspired foods really drew me to this recipe. With the onset of grilling season 2008, this seemed like a natural when we were planning our meals this week. Little did we know that today would be freakishly warm - 77!!! What a day for burgers and grilled veggies. These burgers were truly amazing and all of us LOVED them. The original recipe didn't call for a sauce, but they'd be too dry without. I did like them over rice, as opposed to on buns. The sauce was good on the rice as well as a dipping sauce for the veggies. YUM!!!
FYI: Despite it being pre-Derby, Mint Julip season is also in full swing :)
Chopping: Cilantro, peanuts, garlic, zucchini, red pepper
Time: 35 minutes
Make ahead: I would make the burgers ahead and then grill at the last minute.
