Although we all know that grilling season runs from January 1st to December 31st, Memorial Day weekend marked the official start of grilling season for a lot of people.  Instead of throwing on burgers and hot dogs all Summer, try out this recipe from Bob Trudnak of The BBQ Guru for a Jalapeno Cilantro Pork Steak Bacon Burger.  Pork, jalapenos, and BACON?!?  Where can you go wrong?!

 

JALAPENO CILANTRO PORK STEAK BACON BURGER

Recipe by Bob Trudnak with The BBQ Guru

1 Pork Butt Roast (appx. 3 lbs)

1 pack of onion buns

1 package of bacon (Bob suggests Jalapeno & Cilantro bacon from http://www.bespokebacon.com)

1 medium fresh jalapeno pepper (seeds removed)

Fresh cilantro

1 medium Vidalia onion

4 oz. sour cream

Kosher salt

Black pepper

Garlic powder

3 tsp Olive Oil

 

  • Set up your smoker and pre-heat to 275° F.
  • Coat pork roast with olive oil and season liberally with kosher salt, black pepper, and garlic powder
  • Cook the pork roast in the smoker until it reaches an internal temperature of 175°F.  Once the internal temperature is reached, let rest for 20 minutes.
  • In a medium sized skillet, fry up the bacon until crispy.  Set aside on paper towels.
  • Slice the onion into thick rings.  Using the grease from the fried bacon, caramelize the onion rings and set aside.
  • Finely chop cilantro and jalapeno pepper and combine with the sour cream in a bowl.  Mix lightly and set aside.
  • Once pork roast has rested for 20 minutes, slice into 1 1/2” thick slices.
  • Assemble burgers by smearing jalapeno/cilantro sour cream on both bun slices.  Place pork steak on bun and top with caramelized onions and bacon.

Serve to happy guests!
