If the shocking price of ground beef is getting you down give this Grilled Southwest Pork Burgers Recipe a try. These burgers have a delicious combination of flavors and are nice and juicy.
My wife says she likes them better than the grilled ground beef burgers. Although I wouldn’t go that far; these burgers are really good. This is a simple recipe that’s quick to put together and doesn’t require that many ingredients. For the hot peppers in this recipe, I used Hot Banana pepper rings, but you can substitute the type of peppers you prefer, or have on hand.
Give this one a try; these burgers are delicious.
Grilled Southwest Pork Burgers Recipe
- 1 slice hearty white sandwich bread, torn into pieces (you can also process in a blender)
- 1 shallot (finely chopped)
- 2 tablespoons low-fat milk (I used 2%)
- 2 tablespoons jarred hot pepper rings (chopped)
- 4 teaspoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoons thyme (crushed)
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon dried rosemary (crushed)
- 1 1/2 pounds lean ground pork
- 4 onion buns (toasted on the grill)
- Using a fork in a large bowl mix together the bread, shallot, milk, hot peppers, soy sauce, Worcestershire, chili powder, thyme, pepper, salt, and rosemary. Mash the bread with the fork while mixing to kind of form a paste. Add the pork to the mixture, and mix using your hands until well combined. Divide meat into 4 equal parts and form 4 patties about ½ inch thick.
- Preheat and prepare grill on high heat, reduce heat to medium, and grill patties until nicely browned and slightly charred on one side; flip and continue cooking until done. (150F.) while patties are cooking lightly toast buns cut side down.
- Serve with your choice of condiments
