Asian Twist Mandarin Beef Burger
Alfred State University, N.Y.
When the team at Alfred State University heard about the NY State Burger Contest, it decided to create a few signature burgers to try for the win. This burger came out victorious for the operation's region. Bron Norasethaporn, catering manager, says the burger has been a success because of the fusion of flavors.
"We top it with a Mandarin orange dressing, red onion and use panko breadcrumbs in the meat," Norasethaporn says. "We top them with fried rice paper, like a spring roll, romaine lettuce and sliced tomato. We also serve it with cucumber ajari instead of standard pickles."
