Garlic Basil Pork Burgers

A couple of weeks ago I discussed grinding leftover baby back rib trimmings to make fresh ground pork. I made Rib Burgers with a BBQ dry rub and BBQ sauce but now my garden is so overflowing with basil that I also wanted to try a more herb based recipe. This recipe is the most flavorful burger I've had in a long time. The fresh basil and fresh garlic are crucial in providing this fragrant pork burger. Here we go:

easy recipe for making pork burgers

Ingredients (to make 4 burgers):
1 lb of fresh ground pork
2 cloves of fresh garlic
1/4 cup diced fresh basil
salt and pepper

fresh herbs for a pork burger

Finely dice the garlic and fresh basil. I always have so much fresh basil on hand that I have trouble using it all. This is a good recipe to work through some of the basil!

ground pork used to make a pork burger

Take the fresh ground pork and add the garlic and basil. Sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper in to the mix. Very carefully mix up the ground pork, garlic, and basil. Be careful not to overmix. This is just like making meatballs; you want to avoid overmixing. Keep it slightly loose.

charcoal grilling a pork burger

Prepare a medium to medium high heat on the grill. Once the coals are ready toss the burgers directly over the coals. The pork burgers are done when the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. So use your digital thermometers!

what toppings for a pork burger

I topped this garlic basil pork burger with mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomato. This burger has a really nice flavor. The ground pork tastes a little lighter than ground beef and the addition of the basil works great with the flavor of the pork. Garlic just works well on everything. The flavor of the basil and garlic really comes through. I really enjoyed this recipe!
