Recipe: Ground Pork and Apple Sliders

2     lbs ground pork
½    cup minced white onion
1½  cups finely diced apple
1½  Tbsp Italian seasoning
1      tsp garlic powder
1½  tsp sea salt
1      tsp black pepper

Mix the ground pork with the minced onions, diced apples, and spices.  If you prefer a milder slider, first sauté the minced onions in a little coconut oil.

Evenly separate the meat mixture into 8-10 portions and form those into patties.

Cook on a grill or in a large skillet over medium heat for 7-10 minutes per side or until the patties are done all the way through and no longer pink in the middle.  (Internal temperature of 160F).

You can serve them like burgers wrapped in lettuce, or top with a fried egg and a few dashes of hot sauce.

We had this pork sliders with lettuce and coleslaw, and I like the flavor a lot.

Coleslaw with vinegar dressing

1/2-head of cabbage
1/2 medium onion
1 to 2 carrots
1 green bell pepper
1 to 2 jalapeno peppers

Slice / grate / cut everything thinly.  Mix well.

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2    Tbsp sugar
2    Tbsp oil
1/2  tsp celery seed
1     tsp salt

Mix well.  Add to slaw mixture.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes or more.
