Teriyaki Pork Burgers
These sweet meaty burgers are topped with the mildly pungent pink morsels of pickled ginger as well as cool crisp cucumber making these burgers totally irresistible.
1 lb ground pork
4 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, grated
1 tbsp grill seasoning, or salt and pepper
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1 tbsp oil
1/4 cup pickled ginger
1 english cucumber, sliced
In a mixing bowl mix together ground pork, green onions, garlic, grill seasoning and teriyaki sauce. Divide mixture into 4 portions and shape into burger patties.
In a frying pan or on the grill, turn heat to medium and drizzle in your oil. When hot add the burger patties. Let them cook for about 6 minutes, turn and then cook another 4-5 minutes. Make sure your heat isn't too high since the sugar in the teriyaki sauce will want to caramelize and burn. You can put a lid on your pan to speed up the cooking process without raising your heat.
Split open your buns, add the lettuce, teriyaki pork burger and top with cucumber slices and pickled ginger.
