This Memorial Day weekend I made a Jalapeno pork burger with country fried bacon and marinated onion.


Jalapeno 2 , seeded, diced finely
Ground pork 1 Pound
Bbq sauce 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , divided (1/4 cup
Bacon slices 8 Small
Flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Buttermilk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Salt and pepper To Taste
Peanut oil 1 Cup (16 tbs) (For deep frying)
Balsamic vinegar 3 Tablespoon
Olive oil 3 Cup (48 tbs)
Onion 1 , sliced thickly horizontally
Cheddar cheese slice 8 (or any other cheese of choice)
English muffin 4 , cut into half horizontally, toasted
For garnish
Pickle 1 Large , cut into 4



1. In a bowl, put ground pork, jalapeno pepper and BBQ sauce. Mix well till combined. Make patties of desired size and refrigerate it for about 1 hour.

2. In separate wide mouthed dishes season the buttermilk and flour with salt and pepper to taste.

3. BACON: Dip the bacon pieces in buttermilk and then dredge it in seasoned flour.

4. Heat peanut oil in a deep pan. Put the coated bacon pieces carefully and fry till brown and crispy. Transfer on paper towel to drain off excess oil. Set aside.

5. In a bowl, marinate onion slices in balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

6. Preheat the grill.


7. Place the patties on the grill and sear them. Cook them till the meat is cooked.

8. Place the cheese slices on top. Let it melt completely. Transfer them onto a plate.

9. BURGER: Take bottom half of the toasted English muffin. Place the patty with melted cheese on it. Pour the BBQ sauce over it. Place the marinated onion slices and crispy bacon. Put the other half of the muffin on top to form the burger.


10. In a serving plate, serve the burger garnished with pickle and with fries or chips.
