We are beef people. Yes, I said it. Now, in my defense, I grew up around cattle and my dad has worked with cattle in some respect or another for most of my life! Chicken probably comes next in our arsenal of meat with Pork bringing up the rear. Now, that doesn’t mean we don’t like pork, it just typically isn’t at the top of our list.
The Meat of It
That being said, we have go through our half beef faster now than normal! The boys are growing and eating more, so most ground beef recipes require 2 lbs! Because of this we have been forced to eat other meat and try new things to make things stretch until late summer/early fall when we get our next half. Enter pork! When friends of ours gifted us with some pork I decided to try a new recipe. I tried a similar recipe with ground beef quite a few years ago, but decided to give my ground pork a spin-off of that recipe.
- 1lb. ground pork
- 1 envelope onion soup mix
- 2-4 T Worcestershire sauce
- ¼ c. bread crumbs
- Cheese slices
- buns & condiments
- Begin by dissolving the soup mix in the water and Worcestershire Sauce
- work the mix into the ground pork and finally adding the bread crumbs.
- Form into 3-4 equal patties and grill to your liking.
- Top with cheese right before removing from the grill and garnish.
- I toasted and buttered my buns and topped with pickles because what isn’t better with butter and pickles?!
- Because of the big flavor and the seasoning IN the burger, no add-ons are necessary!
- The first time I made these we used Swiss Cheese. Normally, we have co-jack in the house so that is what we use!
- The amount of Worcestershire Sauce is dependent on your taste! The more you add, the more zing you’ll have to your burgers!
- They are extra juicy, so no need for sauce!
This recipe is easy to throw together and cook and great for a summertime BBQ! T is a tough critic and he really enjoyed these. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did, we’ll definitely be making these again!
