Recipe of the Week: Curried Pork Burgers

My Pop and Rosemary came up to Portland in July to celebrate Rosemary's birthday and I came across this alternative to a grilled burger.  Pork makes this "burger" super juicy and the curry mix gives it a bit of a twist.  Serving this gooey concoction on a thick slab of Texas toast sealed the deal.  This burger is awesome!


Curried Pork Burgers



1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1 1/2 lbs ground pork
1/4 cup chopped red onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire
salt and pepper
4 thick slices of red onion
olive oil
4 slices of Texas Toast
red cabbage leaves (I prefer mine chopped)


In a small bowl combine the mayo, and 1/4 tsp curry powder; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine pork, chopped red onion, garlic, 1 tsp curry powder, Worcestershire, salt and pepper.  Shape into 4 3/4 inch thick patties.

Lightly brush red onion slices with olive oil.

Grill patties over medium heat for 14-18 minutes, turning once (internal temp should be 160 degrees).  Add red onion to grill when you turn the burgers and grill turning once.  Grill Texas Toast for 2-3 minutes per side or until toasted.

To assemble:  Place cabbage on each slice of toast.  Spread mayo mix on top of cabbage and top with pork patties and slice of grill red onion.
