Pork Chops and Applesauce

Peter Brady's favorite. Enough to make Jules Winfield dig on swine. The burger equivalent to the CGI in Avatar. If Ray Allen's jumpshot were a burger, it would be this. Silky smooth. Sweet and savory. Top of the food chain. I challenge you to be a vegetarian after just one bite of this burger.

Pork Chops and Applesauce.

Part of our Sexy Burger quest is trying to recreate meals in a burger. Most restaurant menus will be set up with a section for appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, entrees, and desserts. Not Sexy Burger. We will be set up with three categories only: Burger Appetizers, Burgers, Burger Desserts.

And as such, we need to turn entire meals into burgers. Think of it like how all meals will be in pill form in the future. Consider this the missing link.

  • Marinated pork patty: The smell coming off of this burger must be what pheromones smell like if we could consciously know what they smell like. We marinated ground pork in what we in the Crew call "Sweet Meat" marinade. It is made of ginger, syrup, soy sauce, and other seasonings. We used a little too much marinade making the patties hard to shape, but we fixed it by adding in some bread crumbs to absorb some of the juice, so either be careful with the amount you use or have the bread crumbs handy.
  • Potato bread buns: These had a very good flavor. A little sweeter than regular burger buns. Must be toasted though, this is a very juicy burger with a very juicy condiment, so you want the integrity of the bread to hold up.
  • Apple smoked cheddar: We liked this cheese so much on the Luau Burger we had to bring it around for seconds. The smokiness really mixed well with the juicy marinade. This cheese can be too overwhelming for some (including myself) but with how much flavor was in the patties it was too over powering.
  • Applesauce: Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. X Mom's recipe. Fuji apples. Cinamon. Brown sugar. Best burger condiment I have ever used (until the wonderful day I use Nacho Cheese of course). I don't even know what else to say. So GD good it will blow your mind.
Served with a delicious side of oven roasted potatoes, the Pork Chops and Applesauce became an instant classic. And we really needed a win. I was so down after the Devil's Threesome last week, I needed my faith in burgers restored.

Just kidding, I could never lose faith in the most important mission anyone has ever set out on. Ever.

Next week we invite some old friends who return for the holidays to join us for an international treat.

See you next Burger.
