Pork Burger with Pineapple Serrano Salsa and Whipped Feta

This Pork Burger with Pineapple Serrano Salsa and Whipped Feta, made with ground pork from Snake River Farms, is seriously one of the juiciest, most flavorful burgers I’ve made, and you know I make a lot of burgers. I topped this beauty off with pineapple serrano salsa and whipped feta for an off the charts flavor combination.

Prime Rib of Pork

Snake River Farms

Remember this gorgeous Prime Rib of Pork from Snake River Farms I made last week? Well, some of that prime rib from Snake River Farms became a beautiful pork burger topped with some pineapple salsa and whipped feta.

This pork burger is off the charts, y’all.

Ground Pork Recipe

So, 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 –

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.

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.

Pineapple Serrano Salsa

I made a salsa with the pineapple and serrano peppers because I wanted a little “kick” – not an “ass-kicking”, but a little bit of heat to compliment the pork, and this works so well. You’ll see when you make it what I’m talking about. 

Whipped Feta

To both compliment and marry all flavor components of this burger, I whipped some feta cheese with cream cheese to make whipped feta.

Oh my damn that stuff is amazing, and it was exactly what this burger needed.

I just love it when my food behaves and turns out just like I imagined it would.

I’ve never tasted ground pork this good. Of course, you can use store bought ground pork, but this freshly ground pork was off the charts amazing.

I used my KitchenAid mixer grinder attachment, you can buy it here, or below after the recipe.

The only thing I seasoned it with was a little soy sauce.

In a really good way.
