You’re going to think I’m crazy, but this is the best burger I’ve ever had.

I’m the person who orders a burger everywhere I go. It’s the standard by which I judge all establishments. It’s the thing I make at home when I want to be deliciously happy.

I’ll admit I was skeptical at first (feta mustard? pickled beets? WHAT?), it only took one bite for me to be a believer.

Ingredient notes:

  • Pork spice blend: This simple blend of spices flavors the ground pork and makes it absolutely delicious.
  • Ground pork: Plain ground pork, on pork sausage or mild or sweet Italian sausage.
  • Feta mustard: This mouth-watering spread is made up of whole-grain mustard, feta cheese, and mayonnaise. All the best toppings mixed together!
  • Pickled beets: I like Aunt Nellie’s brand. They are sweet and acidic and it really just completes the burger.

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Mix the garlic powder, coriander, fennel, paprika, and salt and pepper to taste (I like 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper).  Add pork and gently mix until seasonings are distributed evenly. Form into 6 patties approximately 1/2-inch thick each
  2. Preheat a large skillet or grill over medium-high heat. Add patties (frying in batches if necessary) and cook 3 to 5 minutes per side or until a thermometer inserted at the thickest part reaches 145 degrees.
  3. While the burgers are cooking, in a small bowl combine feta cheese, mayonnaise, and mustard and mix well. Drain 2 to 3 pickled beet slices per person.
  4. Transfer burgers to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm. Spread cut sides of buns with butter and toast in skillet or on grill until golden brown.
  5. To assemble the burgers, spread the bottom of each toasted bun with some of the feta mustard. Top each with a pork burger and 2 to 3 pickled beet slices.
