To prepare Flat Bread:
If not already pre sliced, slice each roll horizontally. Brush extra virgin olive oil on the cut sides of the roll. Set aside until ready for grilling.
When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with extra virgin olive oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover and cook turning once until done to preference, 5-7 minutes on each side for medium. Place the tomatoes on the top rack of the grill rack during the last 3 minutes of grilling. Place the Flat bread, olive oil side down on the outer edges of the grill rack to toast lightly during the last 2 minutes of grilling.
To assemble the burgers, spread a generous amount of the hoisin mayonnaise sauce over the cut sides of the Flat Bread. Place a grilled patty, followed by a grilled tomato, then a Bok Choy. Add the top of the Flat bread and serve.
