When it comes to summer menu planning, everyone should have a few good burger recipes in their apron pocket to grill up for a weekend cookout or a quiet night at home. This Ginger Soy Pork Burger with hoisin mayo is one you will want to have handy for all occasions. It’s a must-have recipe to add to your collection!
I love soy sauce. I know it can be salty but there is just something about it that makes it one of those flavors I never get tired of. Recently, I’ve also discovered a love for cooking with ginger and I figured since these two things go so well together, why not get them together in a burger?
For this recipe I decided to use ground pork. I wanted something a little different than everyday beef and really wanted this burger to stand out from the pack. This burger definitely stood out. My husband loved the flavor so much that he started eating it with a fork off the plate as soon as it came off the grill. My 3-year-old-daughter said it was, “Really yummy.” That was a huge compliment coming from little-miss-picky.
Check out the recipe below and let me know what you think. I’ll also be adding a new burger recipe each week this month to celebrate grilling season so check back for updates!

Yum! Burgers are on our menu every week because they’re so easy to make and grill. We’ll be trying this recipe very soon!
Yummy! How easy does that look too? I think it’s a great recipe idea.
The ginger soy sauce would be lovely with a black bean recipe I am currently eyeing up. I bet it would really liven up and bring out the flavour of the burger. This version sounds great for meat eaters.
It’s barbecue season and it’s never complete without burgers! What I love about the summer is that there are so many burger recipes to choose from, you won’t get tired of making them ’til the season ends! This looks so good, I’m definitely keeping the recipe!
That sounds like an interesting flavor combination. I will have to change things up soon and try your recipe. 🙂
what is hoisin sauce? i love a grilled pineapple slice and soy sauce so this right up my alley. thanks so much for sharing!
It’s another kind of sauce commonly used in Asian-type recipes. You can usually find it by the soy sauce.
This burger recipe looks really juicy and delicious. I love burgers and am always on the lookout for new ways to enjoy them.
This looks amazing and actually doesn’t look too difficult for a bad cook like me! Definitely trying this 🙂
My ears perk up whenever I see ginger mentioned with food. This sounds like an awesome way to eat pork
Burgers are one of my favorite meals. I don’t eat meat but my family would love to try this for something different.
I’ve never really been adventurous with my burgers but I love Asian flavored and especially grilled pineapple. I’m sure I would love this so I really need to try it. Thanks for sharing!
