Where’s the beef?

I don’t know about you, but when I think of burgers I typically think of a nice, big, juicy ground beef burger.

However, these succulent and juicy pork burgers with dried apricots and grainy mustard will gladly give the beef burger a run for its money any day of the week, and make you say what beef burger?!!

What is the best method for cooking pork burgers?

The choice is yours.

Once you’ve combined all the burger ingredients in a large bowl and gently mixed to incorporate the dried apricots, garlic, and mustard, you’re ready to cook the pork burgers with whatever your preferred method of cooking burgers happens to be.

The day I made my juicy pork burgers it was rainy, so I cooked them inside in a cast-iron skillet.

Indoors or outdoors. They’ll taste great no matter where you cook them.

What is the proper internal temperature for pork burgers?

Your burger will be finished when it reaches an internal temperature of 160-degrees Fahrenheit on an instant-read thermometer.

To ensure your pork burgers remain juicy and flavorful, remove them from the heat when the thermometer reaches 155-degrees Fahrenheit, and cover the burgers with foil for about 7-10 minutes before serving.

This resting time will allow the burgers to continue cooking slightly (called carry-over cooking), and still be juicy and packed with flavor when it’s time to serve.

The easy step-by-step photo instructions:

  • In a large bowl, gently mix all of the ingredients to fully incorporate but not over mix.
  • Gently pat the meat mixture into patties that are approximately 4″ round.
