Grilled Curried Pork Burgers with Sweet Pickled Peaches

Grilled Curried Pork Burgers with Sweet Pickled Peaches

By Chef Lippe

Soon we will be harvesting the peaches from our tree. Usually I make a canned sweet pickled peach, which we give as gifts throughout the year.  I always get the question, “what do you do with these?”  Here is my families favorite combination of sweet pickled peaches and grilled curried pork burgers that work well together.  They are hot and spicy with a sweet peach topping.

Sweet Pickled Peaches

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds peaches
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 1 pint vinegar
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

Boil sugar, ginger, vinegar and 1 stick cinnamon to make syrup. Peel small peaches. Stick 4 whole cloves into each peach. Cook peaches in syrup until tender. Pack peaches into wide-mouthed jars and pour syrup over them to cover. Seal by following directions on the canning jars you are using.

Curried Pork Burgers

1pound lean ground pork
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons curry paste
1 teaspoon dried ground ginger
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded & minced
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon each salt & pepper

Mix all the meat, the feta, and all the seasonings together & form burgers. Grill. Serve on buns and top with pickled peaches.

Chili and Maple Syrup Baked Pork Chops

Chili Maple Pork Chops

By Chef Lippe

While at the Fancy Food Show in Washington, DC the other day I met with a young company who sold Maple Syrup products. I very impressed and wanted to work with the company when she told me that a portion of all sales went into funding climate research, local farming efforts and sustainable forest stewardship.  All of these things are important to me when I choose which Artisan products I want to work with. And while I was not looking to add maple syrup to my store I did change my mind and you will soon be seeing a line of GREAT maple syrup products. In the meantime here is a great combination of chili and maple syrup.

 Ingredients:

6 – I inch thick pork chops

¼ cup chopped onion

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 and ½ teaspoons sea salt

½ teaspoon chili powder

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

¼ cup maple syrup

¼ cup water

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In large fraying pan lightly brown pork chops.  Arrange in flat baking dish which has a cover or cover with foil to bake.  Mix together onion, vinegar, Worcestershire Sauce, salt, chili powder, pepper, maple syrup and water, pour over pork chops cover and bake 45 minutes. Basting occasionally. Uncover and bake 15 more minutes.  Remove pork chops to a plate. Pour sauce back into frying pan and thicken with flour, making a gravy. Pour over pork chops and serve.
