  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup diced shallot or red onion
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 jalapeno pepper diced and seeds removed
  • 1 ripe tomato, sliced
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 oz cheddar cheese or goat cheese


  • Mix together ground pork with onion, garlic, and jalapeño
  • Form into 4 equal sized hamburger patties
  • Place on grill preheated to 350F (180c)
  • Cook for 5-7 minutes on each side until fully cooked through
  • Optional, top with cheese and let melt for a few seconds before removing from grill
  • Mix together mayo and mustard until smooth
  • Serve burgers wrapped in a double lettuce leaves topped with tomato and sauce


  • Ground pork should be cooked to a temperature of 160F (71c) for doneness
  • Leftovers? Keep leftover beef patties in the fridge in an airtight container or foil-wrapped for 3 days.
  • Freezer friendly? Uncooked (or cooked) burger patties can be frozen for up to 3 months. Be sure to separate patties with parchment paper to avoid them all freezing together into a giant lump. Or flash freeze - this is where you freeze the burgers in a single layer (uncovered) on a tray in the freezer then once frozen transfer to zip lock bag or container.
  • Cook on the stovetop? Pan fry burgers over high heat in a little olive oil for 5-7 minutes per side or until cooked through
  • Serving your carb eating family? Just serve it with a bread bun and some ketchup or tomato sauce
