Pork Burger


4 slices cheese
1 clove garlic, minced (or garlic power)
1 pound ground pork
Salt and pepper
4 burger buns, split
Unsalted butter, softened, for spreading

Combine the ground pork, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Add in the garlic. Gently form the meat into 4 balls, then lightly press into 4-inch-wide, 1-inch-thick patties. Make a 2-inch-wide indentation in the center of each with your thumb to prevent the burgers from bulging when grilled.

Preheat a grill to medium high. Season the patties with pepper. Grill, undisturbed, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn and grill until patties feel firm, 4 to 6 more minutes. Meanwhile, spread the cut sides of the buns with butter and toast on the grill.

Serve the patties on the buns; top with cheese slices and lettuce

Optional: Mayonnaise, ketchup, chillies sauce, fresh tomatoes.
