Indian-Spiced Pork Burgers

Although here in Florida we’re fortunate to be able to eat outside during the winter months, when Summer comes, so do our mosquitoes (and humidity and heat). So I’m trying to eat every meal outside for the time being because I know Summer is looming.

This recipe came from one of Martha Stewart’s cookbooks. She used chicken, which I actually prefer, but I was in a hurry and didn’t want to mess with blending chicken in a blender. (Chicken paste looks pretty gross, too.) So I used ground pork I had in my freezer, and the cilantro from my garden.

Pork Burgers:
1 1/2 lb ground pork
4 green onions, chopped
3 T fresh ginger, pealed and chopped
2 T fresh lemon juice
1 T paprika
2 t ground cumin
1/4 t cayenne pepper
4 pitas, cut in half
1 cucumber, sliced
1/2 c fresh cilantro

Cumin Yogurt Sauce:
1/2 c plain yogurt
1/2 t ground cumin
1/8 c grated cucumber


To make the burgers, combine the ground pork with the onions, ginger, lemon juice, and spices in a bowl. Next, chop the cuke and set aside. Mix the yogurt sauce in a separate bowl and set aside. Grill the burgers until done throughout. Serve the burgers in a pita, with cucumbers and yogurt sauce. Yum!
