Reviews for Pork Burgers with Grilled Pineapple & Peppers
"Family enjoyed these as a something-different kind of burger than the typical beef offering. I also used a different bun--I thought the pineapple slices would add enough sweet to the burger without also using a sweet Hawaiian-type bun, so I chose large Telera rolls (similar to a Kaiser roll) and I would use these again. My grocery had totally run out of ground pork the day I shopped (sigh), so I substituted ground mixed turkey. This actually worked well with the other ingredients, so I was pleased with the overall results. Served with the "Picnic Cole Slaw" found on this site, which we loved, AND it uses bacon, so I got my pork that night anyway--LOL! Will do again."
"Taste alternative to beef burgers. i will use a different bun next time. The Hawaiian sweet rolls I found ended up a bit small for the burgers. The mustard mix had great tangy flavor. Will do this again."
