I've got some pork burgers and for the life of me I cannot get them seasoned up to where they taste reasonable. They don't taste bad, but the seasonings that I've tried don't seem to supplement the taste of the meat well.

I'm no master griller, but I do OK on the grill, but can't seem to find anygood seasoning combination to make a good porkburger.

What seasonings do you use.

(I tried antifreeze. A little too bitter for my palate.)

I like to season my pork burgers with 100% 93/7 pure ground beef.

No clue. A guy gave my parents a hog to slaughter for letting him hunt on their property. She didn't have enough room in her freezer so she gave some to me.

Bottom line is that I don't know.

Me too, but the price is right.

First, your pork is probably too lean. Grind up and mix in some salt pork, then season with salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary. See if that does the trick.

My bet is on needing some extra fat.

This.

If it's a random pork grind it's probably too lean. Salt pork will fix that. Be sure that you don't get lean salt pork because that won't help.

That might be, but a LOT of fat cooks out on the grill and they certainly don't taste dry.

These are already ground and formed into patties at the butcher. I'm not sure I'm willing to grind in some additional pork. But if I were, what is salt pork?

Try Old Bay or Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning. Plus a little salt and a touch of minced garlic. Garlic makes everything beter.

Bacon.

I was thinking about trying that after FMBs post.

Bacon.

Salt pork is usually from the pork belly (bacon). It's in its raw state without smoking, flavorings, etc.

Replace the meat with the following formed into patties:

1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into 2 inch pieces
1/2 onion, cut into wedges
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 egg
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon Thai chili sauce or hot sauce
1/2 cup bread crumbs

Grill ~5-8mins each side over high heat.

Enjoy!

Bell peppers, even organic, are grown using ridiculous amount of pesticides. The organic world is allowed to use "organic" pesticides to keep pests away. They are every bit as toxic, but fall under a category known as "natural" pesticides.

I grow my own. I'm talking about commercially available peppers on a large scale. The "organic" growers get away with murder.

It might be easier (although less effective, but MUCH easier) to simply add some form of oil to the burgers.

If it pork, think southwest/tex-mex. Worcestershire, garlic, oregano, basil, red onion, jalapeno or any form of chile, and of course salt and pepper. Maybe even lime juice, but that might be a little much.

It's just a marinade and won't help the "lean" issue, but this stuff is really really good on pork....

No biggie. I hear what you're saying. Not everything that gets labelled organic is grown like reasonable men would prefer. Rules get bent and twisted.

Just out of curiosity, why "pork burgers?" Beef is better, turkey is leaner.

After reading all the above responses, and adding in my own thoughts:

garlic, chili powder, fat (maybe just spread a little lard on before the grill), pepper

I'd mix a healthy dose of this in as you make the patty. Short of that, a lot of 'italian seasoning', 'pizza pepper' and some fennel seed.

Then melt some butter in the microwave, add a big minced clove of garlic - or 2. Brush your burgers/patties on the grill w/the garlic butter as they cook. I'd make the patty thin if it's me. Brush some of the garlic butter on the buns and toast those bad boys, too. Taste and add S&P as needed, thin sliced sweet onions, etc...

Mustard powder will yield the best but depends on taste.
