Transcend yourself into paleo burger heaven with these Pork and Apple Burgers

Made with organic free-range pork, these Pork and Apple Burgers are so juicy and flavoursome.

Little else is needed to enhance the already satiating natural flavour of the meat, however, with just a little grated apple and some sunflower (or almond) meal, these pork and apple burgers have the power to transcend one into Paleo burger heaven – they’re that good!

I’ve used organic free-range pork and I suggest you do the same, if not organic, then most definitely free range. Why? Because pastured pork is sweeter – the way pork should be.

Quality pork brands to look out for include:

  • Bangalow Pork, from Balgalow NSW
  • Sunforest Organic Farm, from Byron Bay NSW
  • Dawson Valley Free Range Pork, from Qld
  • Gooralie Free-Range Pork, from Darling Downs, Qld

If in doubt, go direct to a reputable Organic/PastureFed Butcher, such as:

Failing that, head to the organic section in your local Coles or Woollies, you never know your luck!
