  • 250 grams ground pork with a good amount of fat
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 teaspoon grated garlic
  • 2 mini baguettes
  • fresh greens I used arugula but you can use lettuce or cabbage
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons guacamole get the recipe
  • 1 handful sliced onions
  • 1/2 fresh ripe mango sliced thinly
  • torn cilantro


  • Put the ground pork in a bowl. Add the salt, pepper, chopped cilantro, oregano, parsley, cayenne, chopped onion and grated garlic. Mix well. Divide into two portions.
  • Form into logs as long as the baguette. Flatten to half an inch thickness.
  • Cook in a very hot AND pre-heated non-stick pan. About four minutes to brown the underside then lower the heat a bit, flip over then cook for another five to six minutes on the other side. Leave the burgers to rest for a while.
  • Split the baguettes vertically and toast in another pan.
  • Spread the bottom halves of the baguettes with mayo then cover with fresh greens.
  • Arrange the burgers over the greens.
  • Top the burgers with guacamole.
  • Arrange mango slices on top of the guacamole.
  • Add sliced onions.
  • Sprinkle with torn cilantro.
  • Cover with the top halves of the baguettes and serve. Heck, they were delicious. So very delicious.
