Tangy Lemongrass Grilled Pork Burgers Recipe

These juicy grilled pork burgers with aromatic lemongrass go alongside a spicy slaw of fennel, strips of zucchini, carrot and apple. The spiciness comes from a little siracha hot sauce in the dressing, which is made a little lighter using half yogurt and half mayonnaise with a squeeze of lime. Refreshing!

This burger and slaw combo is so tasty! I just had to put them together in one post because they compliment each other so well. I tried making these burgers with chopped kaffir lime one day. I realised I was out of lemongrass, and we were lucky enough to have a kaffir lime tree in our backyard.

I’ve started making lots of burgers with flavourings like these. I like to use ground chicken or pork or sometimes lamb. It makes a nice change from the plain old beef burger and is lighter, too. Since moving from London to Sydney, I crave more foods like this. Along with the extra sunshine, eating lighter has been another refreshing change. I’ve yet to notice too much of a difference in the waistline, though, and perhaps that’s an indication that I’m eating a lot of it!
