Words really can’t describe how good Our Favorite Pork Burgers taste. We like them better on the grill, however, the oven works great too! You will love eating these burgers as much as we do!
Ground pork, barbecue sauce and a few other ingredients. The flavor is simple and fabulous. This recipe can be easily cut in half to make four burgers if that is all you need! You will love them!
We make these burgers regularly and they are so easy to make that I make a full batch and keep half in the freezer until needed. In the winter I bake them and in the summer they are so tasty barbecued! Either way you will enjoy every bite!
We love pork burgers so much we have another recipe you have to have a peek at. Perfect Parmesan Double Pork Burgers are a little different but definitely delicious! I hope you consider trying them too!
My son’s favorite topping on this burger is of course more barbecue sauce! With some onions, tomatoes, lettuce and pickles! My husband Ken eats them with just mustard, relish and onion! I love them with ketchup, mayonnaise, onions, tomatoes and lettuce! All of us add cheese of course! Truthfully I couldn’t imagine a burger without cheese!
I can’t wait to hear what toppings you include on Our Favorite Pork Burger and I would love to hear what you think of them! We have made a video and hope you have a moment to watch it below.
Our Favorite Pork Burger
- 3/4 cup your favorite tomato based barbecue sauce, divided
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tblsp pepper
- 2 pounds ground pork
- 8 buns
- 1/2 medium onion, minced (optional)
- cheese optional
- tomatoes optional
- bacon, cooked slices optional
- any additional burger toppings you can think of
Prepare grill for cooking over medium-hot charcoal or medium heat for gas. If baking pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together pork, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon pepper, and 1/4 cup barbecue sauce until combined (try not to overmix), then form into 8 burgers about 3/4 of an inch thick. I usually divide the burgers into 8 balls, as equal as I can get them, and then make the patties.
Oil grill rack, and then grill patties turning over occasionally, until cooked through, about 10 minutes per side. Brush top of each patty with 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce, then turn over and grill 30 more seconds. Repeat as often as you desire.
If baking these burgers in the oven prepare a rimmed baking sheet with tinfoil and a rack lightly coated in cooking spray. Cook for approximately 25 to 30 minutes. Stop every 10 minutes to baste with barbecue sauce and flip. You will be glad you did! Also, rotate your baking sheet during cooking.
MAKING YOUR BURGERS
I usually melt cheese on the buns and brush both sides of the buns with remaining barbecue sauce. You can serve them any way your heart desires! With cheese, lettuce, tomato, more barbecue sauce and anything else you can think of! Enjoy!
