This was in my May/June 2009 copy of Eating Well magazine. They had an article on burgers and I saw the one for Spanish Pork Burgers and thought that we'd have to try it. I got some fresh ground pork from my butcher and we had these last night. Both my partner and I loved them. The Pimenta de la Vera is critical to the taste of these burgers. I found some a few months ago at a specialty market and love to use it on pork chops and chicken. It has an intense smoky flavor. I didn't bother with making the making the lemon-saffron mayo or the piquillo peppers. The burgers with the grilled onions and manchego cheese were tasty enough without. This is the first time we'd had manchego cheese. It's a "mature soft cheese" that is creamy in texture with a nice tang. On a side note, it's interesting that the Eating Well calorie calculation is 364 calories compared to what 'Zaar shows here at 549. http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/spanish_pork_burgers.html I am inclined to believe Eating Well. Anyway, these are very tasty burgers that that make it worth your time and trouble to find the special paprika.
