Pork Burgers

Lynne, my dear vegetarian wife, ventured into true non-vegetarian territory today. She made what I described as “the best burgers that I have ever tasted”, and you all know how I like my meat. After reading an article this week in the NYT and listening to a story on NPR, she made pork burgers. Not that common, certainly not as common as the classic beef pattie, but surprisingly tasty.

She bought a shoulder of port, literally a shoulder and stripped it down to the bone. Minced it, added minced onion, apples, garlic, ground pepper, fennel with a bit of salt. I was in charge of grilling and they clung together very nicely. They were great; you have to try them sometime!!
