Asian Pork Sliders

August 1, 2010

Hello my lovelies! I finally have a new recipe to share that is worthy of your time. I was looking for a slightly healthier alternative to traditional burgers or sliders, and came up with this beauty: Naked Asian Pork Sliders with Avocado Mache Salad.

For the Pork Sliders (usually makes 5 patties):

  • 1/2 ground pork
  • 2 green onions (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp ginger (grated)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 tbsp Japanese cooking wine
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix the ingredients together and form small slider-sized patties, then brush the patties on both sides with sesame oil. If you like gadgets, you can put the patties into one of these funky slider contraptions. If not, that’s ok too – you’re probably more of a professional than I!

I love me a gadget!

Place the patties on the grill (400 degree, direct heat) for 7-8 minutes each side. When you turn them, they’ll be smelling *really* good and looking something like this…

Try not to drool as you're flipping them over

Finally, you can place the patties on a bed of salad. For me, @TheSkivvy  worked up a most delicious avocado mache salad. Please tweet her for the recipe as I’ll be in the BAD books if I claim this to be my creation. Then simply serve up with hoisin sauce, and tadaaa… a wonderful, semi-healthy, lunch time snack.

Gordon Ramsay, eat your heart out!
