Chili Pork Burgers

I make a spicy chili paste in the food processor and then add some to the burgers and even mix some in mayonnaise for the topping. Get some good quality ground pork add a few spicy seasonings and some grated apple to contrast and you have an awesome burger.

You will need:

Chili Paste

  • 3-4 different fresh hot chilies of your choice (stemmed and seeds removed if you want to have less heat)
  • 10 cloves roasted garlic
  • 1 clove fresh garlic
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • a few tbsp of olive oil to top paste
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 apple -grated
  • 1 clove garlic -crushed
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp chili paste (above)
Take a few different chilies a variety is best.
some roasted garlic (you can buy them in oil or make them)
Step 1: in a food processor add chilies, roasted garlic, fresh garlic, cilantro, thyme and sugar. Process until chopped to a fine dice. You can store in covered container with some oil on top in fridge. I use this in meat, on sandwiches, mixed in mayonnaise etc..
Step 2: in a medium bowl add pork, chili paste, grated apple, crushed garlic, soy and sesame oil.
 Mix to incorporate.
Step 3: form into patties and let come to room temperature before grilling.
I have added some chili paste to mayonnaise to create a topping and served this moist, spicy burger with some fries and a fresh salad.
