  1. Combine coleslaw vegetables in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Rub and knead salt into the vegetables with your hand, until cabbage starts to shrink, turns translucent around the edges, and releases water, about 5 minutes.
  3. Leave mixture at room temperature for 1 hour or chill for several hours.
  4. Squeeze cabbage to release moisture and drain well in a fine mesh strainer.
  5. Mix yogurt, oil, mustard, red pepper, and garlic in a small bowl, then toss with cabbage and peanuts. Chill.
  6. Break meat apart in a bowl. Add remaining burger ingredients.
  7. Toss with hands to evenly mix.
  8. Divide into 4 equal portions, then pat into 3/4- to 1-inch-thick burgers.
  9. Mist a 10- to 12-inch heavy-bottomed stainless steel or cast iron skillet or grill pan with oil. Warm over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes.
  10. Add burgers and cook 4 to 5 minutes per side, turning once, until the same color inside and out.
  11. Serve with coleslaw and fruit


  • Pre-sliced cabbage saves time; just be sure to wash it. Salting and crushing the cabbage break down the fibers and release extra water to yield more tender, flavorful, and digestible coleslaw.
