I am a big fan of American classics like burgers and pizza, but sometimes you need to push things a little bit and try to come up with something that is a bit different. My wife and I both love Asian food and we love burgers, so one day I got inspired to whip up this recipe. They turned out amazing the first time; you just have to try these. They are so flavorful you can eat them without a bun. I would recommend putting some extra teriyaki sauce on them.

Directions

  1. Mix the ground pork, apple, onion, bell pepper, teriyaki sauce, apple cider, ground ginger, bread crumbs, black pepper, and soy sauce together in a mixing bowl until evenly combined; shape into 8 patties. Chill the patties in the freezer for 30 minutes so they are not soft when placed on the grill.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Cook the burgers on the preheated grill until firm, hot, and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

These are very delicious. I followed the recipe as written, other than that I cooked it on the George Foreman due to cold, wet weather. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

This "Asian Pork Burger" recipe produced a delicious meatloaf! I am gluten intolerant, so I had to adapt the recipe to my needs. My first bad idea was to replace the breadcrumbs with an egg to use as a meat binder: the meat was so wet that there was no way I could form it into patties (so I even left out the apple cider). My second bad idea was to bake the meat mixture in a covered casserole dish: the meatloaf was "swimming" in 1 cup of jus after 1 hour in the oven. I put the meatloaf under the broiler to brown it up, and used 1 cup of strained jus from the meatloaf (along with some other Asian seasonings) to make a delicious gravy for the meatloaf. I believe that any issues that I had with the recipe were due to the fact that I omitted the breadcrumbs. I would not hesitate to use this recipe to make a meatloaf again: it was delicious! Thank you Norm Walker for sharing your recipe.
