This week on “Cooking with Chef Hermann,” the Chef is grilling burgers… with pork. It’s Hermann’s own twist on a classic American dish.
  Ground pork 1 Pound (Not Lean)
  Minced chipotle 2 Teaspoon (In Adobo)
  Garlic 2 (Forced Through A Garlic Press)
  Muenster cheese slices 4
  Hamburger buns 4 (Toasted)
  Mayonnaise 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Tomatillo 1⁄4 Pound, husked and rinsed, then sliced (1 Large Piece)
  Avocado 1⁄2 Small
  Cilantro sprigs 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over medium heat.

Gently mix pork, chipotle, garlic, and a scant teaspoon salt until just combined. Form into 4 (1/2 inch thick) patties.

Oil grill rack, then grill patties, covered for 4 minutes.

Flip patties and top with a slice of cheese. Grill, covered, until just cooked through, 1-2 minutes more.

Spread buns with mayonnaise and assemble burgers with tomatillo, avocado and cilantro.
