Jerk Pork Burgers
I'm loving the ground pork lately! I still had a package leftover from last weeks sale at Safeway. This time I decided to add some jerk type seasoning for a little different flavor. It was a good low maintenance family pleaser!
I used about 1 lb. ground pork
1 tsp fax seed oil
1 tsp each:
and 1/8 tsp cayenne
It was just enough for 4 patties. I grilled them and put them on a bed of lettuce with a side of avocado and tomato (a salad of sorts).
I sliced one small sweet potato (like fries) and baked it at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. I sprayed the pan with some olive oil spray and seasoned the sweet potatoes with a little garlic powder and pepper. I then sprinkled a few crushed pecans over the top!
The other side dish for this meal was steamed yellow zucchini! I sauteed some onion, garlic, and orange bell pepper in about a tsp olive oil, added the yellow squash. Cover with lid, and steam until squash is tender.
This is only about a 3 block paleo-zone dinner! ... Enjoy!
