Quick Fix Asian Fries

Since I was grilling up a few Asian pork burgers for dinner, I needed some fries to go with them. Something with a bit of Asian zing to it. So, I grabbed a bag of frozen fries out of the freezer, baked them up, and tossed them with a few Asian ingredients. In no time, my quick fix Asian fries were on the table, ready to be devoured.
Quick Fix Asian FriesThese quick fix Asian fries do have a bit of a spicy kick to them, which is probably why we loved them so much. Get your fries good and crunchy. If they sit for long in the sauce they might get a bit soggy. They really won’t last long so it’s not much of a worry.

Moore’s Asian Teriyaki Wings

Whoa back up the truck to teriyaki yumminess! We both loved the heck out Moore’s Asian Teriyaki wing sauce. Though the bottle says you can use the sauce on anything from vegetables to stir-fry to whatever, the sauce was amazing on wings. Not overly sweet as teriyaki sauce can sometimes be. Not overloaded with soy sauce or ginger. Just flat-out perfect teriyaki flavors.
moores-asian-teriyaki-wingsI made sure to not overly sauce my wings. Some places you buy wings at like to bury their wings in sauce, usually to hide skimpy thin wings. Not me. I use the big wings and I want to taste the wings too, not just the sauce. Also try Moore’s Creamy Ranch or Blue Cheese wings.

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes. Also check out my always-growing list of my favorite store-bought wing sauces.

Hawaiian Pork Burger

This Hawaiian pork burger is exactly why we should be eating more pork burgers. Packed with flavor and finished with great toppings, every bite was a treat. I could’ve opted to grill the pineapple, but I love the taste of fresh pineapple just as it is. That sweet flavor along with the tangy BBQ sauce really went along well with the slightly herby patties.
Hawaiian Pork BurgersI’d make these Hawaiian pork burgers again. And again. I do recommend using a BBQ sauce with a slight smoky flavor. And a little spiciness wouldn’t hurt either since you’ve got that wonderfully sweet pineapple slice to contrast it.

Hawaiian Pork Burger

Course Main
Cuisine American
Prep Time 2 hours
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 20 minutes
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 cup minced green onion green parts only
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • Vegetable oil
  • 4 pineapple rings
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 4 burger buns
  • 4 green leaf lettuce leaves
  • 4 slices smoked ham sandwich meat

Instructions

  • In a large bowl combine the pork, green onion, ginger, allspice, and pepper.
  • Form into 4 equally-sized patties. Place on wax paper and refrigerate for up 2 hours.
  • Fire up your grill. Clean the grates well.
  • Lightly oil the outsides of the patties. Not much, just a bit so they don't stick.
  • Grill the patties on one side for 5 minutes.
  • Flip and continue cooking until done, reaching at least 145 F internally. I took mine to 160 F because some folks still aren't used to pink pork even though it's fine to consume.
  • Optionally, brush the patties with BBQ sauce and grill the pineapple rings. I find grilled pineapple rings to be prone to falling apart unless cooked on a griddle, so I usually skip grilling them.
  • Remove the patties and let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, toast your buns if desired.
  • Assemble the burgers by brushing BBQ sauce on the inside of the buns.
  • Top the bottom bun with the ham, followed by the lettuce and pineapple.
  • Add the pork burger and serve.
