Our Creative Cooking Crew’s challenge for February: “Let’s get creative with  “Not Your Mickey D Burger”.


This is probably my shortest post ever as I have been quite crazy lately.

Now, to this post.  I decided to call it  a puequito (little pork in Spanish) burger because I took about 4 boneless pork chops using Cuisine Art’s grinding meat post.  Adding to it  cooked and crumbled Spanish chorizo, one chopped onion caramelized in the chorizo rendered fat and crumbled green plantain chips seasoned with garlic to bind.  Grilled it, added shredded Manchego cheese, sweet plantain and mango salsa, extra layers of arugula, grape tomatoes, avocado and the pesto to spread on bun.


You are probably thinking that it is a crazy combination, but it worked for me and we  enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Another great looking dish and I’m very intrigued enough to try it out! However, 1) I’m up north and we have been having at least 8-12 inches of snow every weekend! 2) I’m not understanding how you put the burgers together. Would it work if the ingredients were raw ie: ground pork and de-skinned minced chorizos mixed together? Is the onion a garnish once caramlized or does the cooked onion go in the patty? What type of pesto, basil or a cilantro mayonnaise? Gosh my mouth is watering!!!!!!! Maybe I’ll get the ‘George Forman’ out of the pantry instead of waiting for warmer BBQ weather!

    • Once you cook the chorizo you add to the raw ground pork and using the chorizo fat you cook the onions adding them to the meat before grinding. I know this post is a little crazy. Just as I have been lately. The pesto is made with manchego cheese, pumpkin seeds and cilantro plus olive oil

    Beautiful, colourful and totally appetizing. I love plantains too and have a couple on my counter. May try the chips with them.
