BROWN SUGAR PORK & PINEAPPLE BURGERS

May 19, 2015

I now definitely have a dutch oven on my wish list. (I would love a pretty white le creuset one, but what am I? A billionaire?) When making these pork burgers, I decided to try a dry rub in the oven rather than my normal crock pot routine. I really loved the results. The sweet and tangy combo of bbq sauce and grilled pineapple is so quintessentially summer. Who knows what other cooking wonders the dry heat of a owning a dutch oven might unleash.

    Bread- you an make amazing bread in a Dutch oven! (And as much as I’d also love a Le Creuset, I have a Food Network Dutch oven from Kohls).

  • OMG this pork was so good!! Should I have cooked it covered? It was too hard to shred it but we ate it like sandwich meat instead and put smashed pineapple on top!! Thank you for the recipe! I love it :)
