A juicy beef and pork non-traditional burger, filled with umami flavours cooked in a cast iron pan in a non-traditional way.
- In a bowl, combine the beef, pork, mustard, egg (optional) Worcestershire sauce, miso, garlic powder and onion powder and mix.
- Take approximately 1/2-3/4 cup of meat and shape it until it is approximately 1cm thick. (Don’t worry, when the meat cooks it get thicker as it shrinks inwards) Poke a hole in the middle so that the burger keeps it shape and doesn’t curl up during the cooking process.
- Use small pieces of parchment paper between the burgers to stack them up until you ready to cook them.
- Let the patties sit for 30 minutes
- In a cast iron pan, set the stove to medium heat and add a bit of oil. Wait until the pan is very hot.
- Add in the burger and let it sear for 1-2 minutes. Don’t touch it or flip it!
- Add 1/4 cup of water to the pan and quickly put a lid over it and let it steam. (Careful, the steam is hot!) Let it cook for about 2 minutes, or until the water has evaporated away
- Remove the lid and flip the burger and let it cook for another 2 minutes to brown the other side.
- At this point, if you are adding cheese to your burger put it on now and put the lid over it for another 30 seconds or until the cheese has melted
- Serve it on a bun and some toppings and enjoy!! ?
- I have tested this recipe with extra lean pork and I do not recommend using it. The extra lean pork did not have enough fat to make this burger moist and juicy and it turned out very dry and tough in texture.
