Recipe: Alida Ryder’s Delicious Apple and Pork Burgers are Sweet and Flavourful

Simple & DeliciousHeerlik & MaklikAuthor of Simple & Delicious: Recipes from the Heart and Heerlik & Maklik: Hartskos, Alida Ryder, shared one of her favourite burger recipes with Eat Out. Apples and pork might sound unusual for a burger, but Ryder uses the apple to add a subtle sweetness that doesn’t overpower the meat:

“A few years ago I would’ve turned my nose up at this burger and told you that I don’t eat fruit with meat,” says award-winning blogger, recipe developer and food stylist Alida Ryder. “But my palate has matured a bit since then and I appreciate the effect sweet and savoury flavours have on each other. Pork and apples is just one of those classic, delicious combinations.”

With these burgers the apple is used as a subtle flavouring more than a partner to the pork and its sweetness is just noticeable. Alida likes to serve them with caramelised onions or thinly sliced apples, sliced camembert and fresh rocket.
