Pork Cilantro Sliders

what you need:
  • 20 oz ground pork (or any ground meat/poultry)
  • 2 to 3 small scallions
  • 1/2 to 1 bunch cilantro, stems removed
  • 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt (I love salt so you may want to start with 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon Ancho chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (optional)
  • 2 egg yolks or 1 whole egg
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour (optional)
what you do:
Chop scallions, cilantro leaves, and jalapeno, if used, in a mini chopper to desired size.

Mix all ingredients really well. Form sliders (small burgers - roughly 2 oz each), fry in cast iron skillet or whatever you prefer, until cooked all the way through. That's it.

I ate them with some left over cabbage I had sauteed in tallow and homemade sauerkraut. However, I bet they would go great with with Cuban Style "Rice" or on Grain-Free Hamburger Buns. You could also make them smaller, stick a toothpick in them, and serve as an appetizer with some kind of sauce.

Guten Appetit!
