Orange Marmalade Pork Burgers for National Barbecue Week

I love a good ol burger; juicy, succulent and with interesting flavours, I eat burgers all year round. Many people eat more burgers in the Summer months, when the barbecue is out, Summer is longer and al fresco dining is the order of the day. To celebrate National Barbecue week May 30th - 5th June,  Four Walls, a company who provides inspiration and ideas for your home, is teaming up with bloggers to create all things barbecued related. As BBQ's are a great way to use out outdoor space in our homes, there are some interesting articles on their site.
I wanted to create a recipe something a little different for National Barbecue Week and combined my love of pork and citrus to make pork and orange marmalade burgers. Pork burgers is perhaps less popular then beef but I think it's a great base for adding flavours and for something a little bit different. The orange marmalade adds a tang to the burgers and the mustard adds a slight heat. I served my orange marmalade burgers with fries, plantain chips, rum punch and a serving of scotch bonnet peppers. 


Makes 4
Ingredients
500g lean pork mince
2 tablespoon orange marmalade
2 garlic cloves, finely diced
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon English mustard
1 tablespoon salt
4 burger rolls

Optional
Gherkins
Cheddar cheese
Ketchup
Mayonnaise

Method
Add the pork mince, orange marmalade, garlic cloves, rosemary, mustard and salt in a mixing bowl. Using your hands, mix the ingredients together until everything is well mixed. Try to ensure that you do not over mix everything as this is likely to make a tougher burger. Shape the mince into 4 patties and place (on a plate) in the fridge to firm up for at least 30 minutes. When your barbecue is ready place the burgers on the grill and cook for around 10 minutes, flipping over several times and until the juices run clear.

  1. oooh, I LOVE your photo's with the floral table cloth... so pretty. Also love the marmalade in the meat, that's inspired. Bet it would work really well with chicken burgers too!
