Ingredients (to make 4 burgers):
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!
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.
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!
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!
