Spinach Garlic Pork Burgers with Raspberry Jalapeno Sauce

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 3-4 burgers

Ingredients

For the spinach mixture:

  • ½ Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or other fat)
  • 2 C spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the burgers:

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • dash cayenne
  • 1 lb ground pork

For the sauce:

  • 1 C raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1-2 finely diced jalapenos (depending on your spice preference), seeds removed
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add spinach then salt and pepper to taste. Cook down until spinach is wilted, stirring occasionally.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the burger ingredients with the cooked spinach.
  3. Loosely form your burger mixture into 3-4 patties, depending on the size you want.
  4. Cook the burgers on a grill. I used an indoor grill set to high (400ºF) and cooked for about 5 minutes. The internal temperature of the burger should reach 170ºF.
  5. While burgers cook, place a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Combine the sauce ingredients and stir until raspberries are broken down and ingredients are completely combined.
  6. Use the sauce to top off the burgers and serve over spinach, if desired.
