When it comes to burgers we’ve tried homemade beef, turkey and chicken burgers. Oddly enough we’ve never tried pork burgers. When you first read the ingredients list you might go hmmmm…this should be interesting – or at least we did. In the end it’s a very tasty burger that pairs nicely with the peanut sauce.

Omit the cilantro if you are not a cilantro fan.


Pork Burgers with Peanut Sauce

1lb – lean ground pork
1-2 tbsp – chopped fresh cilantro
1 tbsp – fresh lime juice
2 tsp – soy sauce
1-2 tsp – grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp – salt
2 cloves – garlic, crushed

Peanut Sauce
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
2 tbsp – sour cream
1 tbsp – fresh lime juice
2 tsp – soy sauce

Combine first 7 ingredients (pork through garlic) shaping mixture into four larger patties or 6 smaller ones. If your family likes heat try adding in some red pepper flakes. Grill patties over medium heat until completely cooked.  Serve in buns with lettuce, peanut sauce and whatever additional burger fixins you enjoy.

Peanut Sauce: mix peanut butter, sour cream, 1 tbsp lime juice and soy sauce until well blended.
