Passion for Pork

Recipe: Chef Doreen Prei’s Pork Burger

Sharman - Thursday, July 5, 2018

Summer is in full swing and that mean’s it is full-on burger season. Every second Wednesday all summer long, Kathryn Joel and chef Doreen Prei of Get Cooking Edmonton will be hosting a burger night.

I checked out their inaugural event of the season, where chef Prei was serving up a choice of three burgers, including her legendary fried-egg topped Irvings Farm Fresh Alberta pork burger. Check out their schedule for upcoming dates and menus to try Chef Prei’s original – but in the meantime you can check out her recipe.

What you’ll need…

400 g ground pork, freshly ground
2 shallot, finely cut
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
2 tablespoon fresh chopped lovage
1/2 bunch chives, finely sliced (or use green onions)
1 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon pork, duck or goose fat

To serve: bun, greens and sriracha mayonnaise


In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients, mixing with your hands to combine.

Shape into burgers, about 1 cm thick.

Heat a pan over medium high heat, adding pork, duck or goose fat.

Cook the burgers for about 3-4 minutes a side, until caramelized and cooked through. Enjoy!
