    Serves: 8 

    • 900g pork mince
    • 1 small apple - peeled, cored, and chopped
    • 1/2 red onion, chopped
    • 1/2 red or green pepper, chopped
    • 4 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
    • 4 tablespoons apple juice or cider
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 60g breadcrumbs
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Mix the pork mince, apple, red onion, red pepper, teriyaki sauce, apple juice, ground ginger, breadcrumbs, black pepper and soy sauce together in a mixing bowl until evenly combined; shape into 8 burgers. Chill the burgers in the freezer for 30 minutes so they are not soft when placed on the barbecue.
    2. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
    3. Cook the burgers on the preheated grill until firm, hot, and no longer pink in the centre, about 5 minutes per side.

    This is an awesome recipe!!!! I did make a couple slight changes I omitted the bell pepper cause I had none and the apple, I added some fresh garlic bout two teaspoons. Other than that followed the recipe and it turned out great!!!  -  27 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are very delicious. I followed the recipe as written, other than that I cooked it on the George Foreman due to cold, wet weather. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.  -  01 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a mind teaser. My head says it is a burger, but the taste buds say it is ribs. This is fantastic, but for me not something I'd eat as often as a regular burger. This is special & would be a treat. My husband asked if there was liquid smoke in it, nope. He couldn't believe either how much it tasted like good ribs. I didn't have apple cider so didn't use anything in its place, just left out. I really don't see what it could've added because they were very moist & you have to put in the freezer for the 30 min to keep them firm. We didn't know if you'd use ketchup on these or what. I'd recommend just butter the bun & crisp them up. We did try a little BBQ sauce on a bite or two & it still tasted like a good rib with BBQ sauce then. I'm still having a hard time getting my head around how teriyaki sauce, apple, red pepper, ginger & soy sauce, onion & bread crumbs come out like they did for the flavor. Sorry, can't say enough, so good & juicy with lots of flavor.  -  18 Nov 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
