tablespoon sesame oil (not toasted)
cup Asian sweet chile sauce or chile sauce
tablespoon creamy peanut butter

Chopped dry roasted peanuts
- In a large bowl combine onion, the 1/4 cup peanuts, cilantro, ginger, the three cloves garlic, salt, and crushed red pepper. Add pork; mix well. Shape mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties that fit on the Fried Wonton Wrappers. Brush patties evenly with oil; set aside.
- For sauce, in a small bowl whisk together chile sauce, peanut butter, and the one clove garlic; set aside.
- For a charcoal grill, grill patties on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 10 to 13 minutes or until done (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as directed.)
- To serve, place some of the bok choy on the Fried Wonton Wrappers. Top with burgers, sauce, additional peanuts, and the remaining bok choy.
