Barbecue Pork Burger Recipe

Burgers on a grillIngredients

  • 1-1/2 lbs. ground pork
  • 1 small red onion, minced, plus slices for serving on burgers
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 4 soft onion rolls, split horizontally


Heat grill or griddle to medium high. In a medium bowl, place pork, onion, 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix very gently with a fork to combine, being careful not to overwork meat.

Gently form meat mixture into 4 equal size patties. With thumb, make a 1/2 inch deep indentation in the center of each. This helps keep burgers flat during grilling.

Season the barbecue pork burgers with salt and pepper; grill until cooked throughout, five to eight minutes per side.

Serve on onion rolls with sliced onion and remaining barbecue sauce.
