Here is a great grilling recipe to serve at your next Summer cookout. Your family and friends will enjoy this delicious pork burger!


Canola oil, for grill grates
1 1/2 lb. ground pork
2 slices bacon, finely chopped
1 tsp. cumin
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 slices pepper-Jack cheese
1 (4-ounce) can chopped Hatch chiles, drained
Hamburger buns and fresh cilantro, for serving


Set up grill for direct and indirect cooking and heat to medium-high. Once hot, clean and lightly oil grates.

Combine pork and bacon in a bowl. Gently shape into 8 balls; flatten into 3/4-inch-thick patties. Using your thumb, make a shallow, 1 1/2-inch-wide indentation in top of each patty. Season with cumin, salt, and pepper.

Grill, uncovered over direct heat, indent sides up, until browned and patties easily lift from grates, 6 to 7 minutes. Flip and grill until just cooked through, 6 to 7 minutes.

Transfer burgers to indirect heat and top with cheese and chiles, dividing evenly. Grill, covered, until cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes.

Serve on buns topped with cilantro.
