Family Circle Moo Shu Pork Burger

As I've stated numerous times before, we are huge pork fans in our household. I normally make pork once a week, which is far more frequently than I prepare beef. Beef as an ingredient is delicious, but I have never been one to sit down and eat an entire steak in one sitting. I have always loved the taste of pork far better and am always looking for ways to use the meat in new ways. I was given the July issue of Family Circle magazine and was intrigued by the recipe for Moo Shu Pork Burgers.

This recipe has 10 ingredients, and takes approximately 21 minutes to prepare and cook. Since I grind my own pork, that added 15 minutes of additional time, but I prepped in the morning to cut down on dinner preparations. I made a few modifications to the original recipe. First, I am not a fan of light mayonnaise, it tastes off to me, so I used regular mayonnaise instead. Second, I was unable to find cremini mushrooms, so I substituted baby portabellas. Finally, I grilled my burgers on an indoor grill. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.

My whole family enjoyed this recipe. I used a high quality tenderloin for my ground meat, and the taste was absolutely delicious. I definitely won't be going back to cheaper cuts in the future. My husband's favorite part of the recipe was the hoisin/mayonnaise sauce, which added a sweet taste to the pork. This recipe is a great way to use pork in an interesting way and takes very little time to prepare.

  7. @Ola A lot of the recipes I post are pretty easy, I have two young boys, so I try to make most of what I bake simple and quick :)

    @Inspired I just started grinding my own pork about 6 months ago, it is so much better!

    @Judy Roast pork is yummy! I'm still learning to be a better cook every day also :)
