MMmmmm! Try This!

For dinner last night, Matt and I had "Curry Pork Burgers".  They were great!!  We had some leftover ground pork to use (from a fried rice recipe), and instead of using all pork we used about 1/2 pork and 1/2 hamburger.  It was a really nice combination.

Here is the recipe:

Curry Pork Burgers with Spicy Ketchup

Inactive Prep Time:
Cook Time:
10 min
6 servings


  • 2 1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 2 large clove garlic, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 hamburger buns
  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • 2 to 3 tomatoes, sliced
  • Spicy Ketchup, recipe follows


In a large bowl, using your hands mix together pork, coriander, curry powder, Worcestershire, cayenne, scallions and garlic, seasoning well with salt and pepper. Make 6 even patties and put in refrigerator until ready to cook. Heat a large fry pan over medium-high heat, add oil. Sear patties until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Cook in batches, if necessary. Serve inside hamburger buns topped with lettuce leaf, tomato slice and spicy ketchup.

Spicy Ketchup:

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped
In a saucepan over medium heat, lightly saute garlic in butter, about 2 minutes. Add ketchup, red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper. Cook another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in scallions. Cool before serving.

I hope you all enjoy!  We had it with Rachel Ray's Roasted Thick Potato Chips and a salad.  Yummy!!
