Ingredients

For the pork spice blend (see note 1):

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground fennel
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the pork burgers:

  • 2 pounds ground pork (see note 2)
  • 6 brioche buns or other burger buns, split
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese (see note 3)
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 1 16 ounce pickled beets (see note 4)

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine garlic powder, coriander, fennel, paprika, and salt and pepper to taste (I like 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper). Mix well.
  • Add pork and gently mix until seasonings are distributed evenly. Form into 6 patties approximately 1/2-inch thick each.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Notes

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