Grilled Pork Burgers

I can’t resist a good pork burger. I like mine simple.  I don’t add fillers, just meat patties with seasonings.  We love to grill too.  Charcoal is our way to go.  I didn’t used to think I cared for charcoal; lighter fluid is rather pungent; then I discovered the natural wood briquettes and I don’t buy anything else.  No starters needed just a chimney or a nice mound will do.  No matter your grill preference don’t hesitate to try pork next time the burger mood hits.

Pork Burgers for 4

  • about 2 pounds ground pork unseasoned
  • buns
  • a grill and charcoal (or propane if desired)
  • toppings of choice ~ today I went with avocado

Begin by warming up grill; once nice and hot make sure grates are clean and ready to use.

Form pork into 4 equal sized patties. Season as desired; we used salt, pepper, and cayenne.

Place patties on hot grates; grill for about 7 – 10 minutes per side depending on size of patties and heat of grill.  You want pork burgers on the medium well side but not dried out so adjust heat and time as needed.

Remove from grill when ready and allow to rest for a few minutes before digging in.
