Sirloin and Pork Burger with Blue Cheese Slaw and Charred Corn

Yep, it’s another burger.

Pork Burger with Blue Cheese Slaw
Don’t even pretend that you didn’t welcome another burger recipe. Errybody loves burgers.

Especially me.

This one is special to me because I ground the meat myself – I used both top sirloin and pork tenderloin. They’re both pretty damn lean, but it still made for a fantastic burger. Of course, the complexity of the burger contributed to that, but the mixture of beef and pork made for a unique taste in the burger itself.

I also added some bacon on the bottom (it didn’t need it but I wanted it), which added another layer of beautiful.

I’m not the biggest corn fan, but for some reason I love shoepeg corn. I didn’t char the hell out of my corn, but feel free to. I kinda seared it a little. I charred my corn after making my burgers in the same pan, which gave it even more flavor. If you’re speculative about the corn on the burger, don’t be. It’s now one of my favorite things. Seriously; I never would have thought it would make that much of a difference, but it’s an amazing addition to a burger.

The only thing better is the blue cheese slaw. It’s off the damn charts.

    This burger looks amazing, A few years ago, I took a class that taught how to prepare meals using meat and poultry. During the unit with ground meat, our instructor told us that for the best flavor, we should always use two or more types of ground meat. He was right. I am really anxious to try the blue cheese coleslaw.
