Pork Burger with Pineapple Serrano Salsa and Whipped Feta

Remember this gorgeous Prime Rib of Pork from Snake River Farms I made last week?
Prime Rib of Pork Well, when I “Frenched” it, I ended up getting so much good meat that I had a pound of freshly ground pork after I put it through my meat grinder. This is what it looked like before I “Frenched” it –
Rack before frenching If you look at the meat underneath the bones, you’ll see what I’m talking about.

That made me pretty excited, so I wrapped it up and put it in my freezer so I could contemplate what to do with it.
Ground Pork Sometimes it’s random ass things that give me inspiration. This time it was a pineapple – once I saw it I knew what I had to do. Make a burger. I made a salsa with the pineapple and serrano peppers and I whipped some feta cheese with cream cheese.

Oh.My.Word. The pineapple salsa and feta together with the pork is outstanding. I love it when my food behaves and turns out just like I imagined it would.
