Pork Curry and Feta Burgers

~Pork Curry and Feta Burgers~

So we made it back home after a great ride on our bikes out at Hiawatha today, and I just couldn’t wait to get cooking.  As John fired up the barbecue, I got out the meat which I had mixed earlier, and put into the  refrigerator, waiting  to be made into patties.   I made some great whole wheat burger buns, ( I will post the recipe  later), and link to this page.  Sweet potato fries are a good go with .  I love how the curry and coriander mingle with the feta.  Gotta go now .  Time for some eats!

  • 1 lb (454 g) lean ground pork
  • 3/4 cup(175mL) coarsely chopped coriander
