Pork is one of the tastiest meats known to man. It’s also healthier than you thought. Protein-packed pork contains choline, a nutrient that can boost your energy and stamina in the gym.


  • Burgers
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 2 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated with a zester
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 green onion, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Chinese five spice
  • 1/2 Tbsp tamari
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Fixings
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage and carrots
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp tamari
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1/2 cucumber, cut into spears
  • 4 Kaiser rolls or a baguette (any crunchy bread or roll will do)


  1. In a large bowl, mix all of the burger ingredients together. Divide into 4, and shape your burgers, making them about 1/2” thick.
  2. Set your grill to medium-high. Grill your burgers for about 4 minutes per side.
  3. For the “fixings,” get a medium-size bowl and add the shredded cabbage and carrots, rice vinegar, tamari, and sesame oil. Stir to combine.
  4. Layer your bread with a burger, the cabbage/carrot mixture, and the cucumbers. Enjoy.
