Thai Burgers

I love Thai food, and I adore barbecue. While experimenting one day, I came up with these beauties. They might not be 'authentic' but they sure hit the spot. Makes 6 servings.

1 Preheat grill for high heat.
2 In a large bowl, mix together ground round, bread crumbs, lemon grass,   shallot, chili paste, and peanuts. Season with salt and pepper.   Form into patties. If you are making these ahead of time, do not add   peanuts until you are ready to grill.
3 Lightly oil grate, and place burgers on grill. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes   per side. Remove from grill, and sprinkle burgers with lime juice.
