Pork Belly Burger

 

Super charge your burger using pork belly to replace traditional bacon, some delicious cheddar cheese and grilled apples to top it off.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cloud Burger
  • 3 slices Pork Belly (see below)
  • 3 Apple Rings
  • 1 slice Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 tbsp Maple Mustard (see below)
  • 1 Burger Bun

Instructions

  1. Burger cooking 101: Only touch a burger twice once it's on the grill. Once when you flip it and once when you take it off. Do not press on the burger, do not poke the burger, do not bother the burger. The more a burger is handled the likelihood increases in subpar performance and a dry patty.
  2. Using an apple corer, plunge it down through the apple & take out the whole inside. Slice the apple into ⅛ inch thin slices. Place them on a hot grill & grill to achieve a nice diamond pattern.
  3. Cook the burger to desired temperature. If not already grilled off, grill off the pork belly.
  4. Once the burger is cooked to desired temperature top it with the sliced cheddar & melt slightly. Shingle the pork belly on top. Place the grilled apple rings on the bun top with a dollop of maple mustard.
