Tonight we enjoyed this Sesame-Ginger Pork Patty with Pineapple . It was sweet, savory and delicious! Ted and I both agreed this was very satisfying to the taste buds. It was quick to throw together and smelled wonderful cooking. This is a keeper!
Serves 4 35 minutes to serve
- 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 2 scallions, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil, divided
- 1 pound ground pork
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 4 pineapple rings, 1/4 inch thick
- 1 Preheat grill to medium-high (or see Stovetop Variation).
- 2 Combine soy sauce, scallions, garlic, ginger and 1 teaspoon sesame oil in a small bowl.
- 3 Place pork in a medium bowl. Add half of the sauce mixture to the pork and gently combine without overmixing. Form into 4 patties, about 3/4 inch thick. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon sesame oil and vinegar to the remaining sauce mixture and set aside.
- 4 Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the burgers, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 155°F, 4 to 5 minutes per side. During the last 3 minutes of cooking, add the pineapple rings to the grill and cook, turning once, until dark grill marks appear.
- 5 Combine watercress and carrot in a large bowl. Toss with 2 tablespoons of the reserved sauce. Divide the salad among 4 plates. Top each portion with a pineapple ring and a burger. Drizzle any remaining sauce on top.
