Jerk Burgers

Busha Browne's Jerk Seasoning - This is the one!

I have been craving jerk...fantasizing about jerking some wings and throwing them on the grill for the next game day.  So burger night came up first and I thought...burgers!  Hamburger?  Nah.  Pork! 

These were juicy, succulent, spicy, sweet and all good things all wrapped up together in a burger.  The sweetness of the apple is classic with pork, but the spicy jerk seasoning took it over the top!  So easy, too.  It's our new favorite burger!
Serving Size  : 4 
  •   1       pound  ground pork
  •   1       tart apple -- grated on large holes, skin on
  •   1/4    medium  onion -- finely diced
  •   2       teaspoons  jerk seasoning -- Busha Brown is my fave! (more or less - I like MORE)
  •            Kosher salt -- to taste
Mix all ingredients together lightly, but thoroughly.  Form into 4 equal burgers.  Grill until cooked through, but still juicy.

Serve on toasted or grilled buttered buns and top with sliced, red ripe tomatoes and serve alongside a pile of sweet potato fries and a nice slaw. 

NOTE: The best jerk seasoning I've ever found is Busha Browne's.  It's a paste type in a small jar (4 oz.)...packs a nice punch of heat and subtle sweetness.  Absolutely the best out there.  If you're lucky enough to be able to shop at a Wegman's, pick yourself up a few bottles!  I do every time I'm in MD since the Pittsburgh area doesn't have a Wegman's.  You can also order it on the internet.  Amazon has it.  Do it!

(HEY WEGMAN'S!  PUT A STORE IN PITTSBURGH!!!!  There's one in Erie, those lucky ducks.) Print this post
