- Marinate the pork belly: Combine garlic, red
pepper flakes, soy sauce, honey and ketchup in a
food processor. Transfer to a plastic zip-top bag
with the pork belly and marinate in the
refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or preferably
- When you’re ready to cook the burgers:
Remove the pork belly from the marinade and
discard the marinade. Wash the pork belly and
pat it dry thoroughly. Cut it into slices of roughly
1⁄4-inch thickness (about 12 slices).
3.Heat a charcoal grill or gas grill to
4.Line a large dinner plate with plastic wrap. In a
medium-size bowl, combine the ground beef
with the mustard and the rub, gently kneading
and taking care not to overhandle the meat.
Shape into four patties of equal size and
thickness. Season the burgers generously with
salt and pepper and transfer them to the
prepared plate. Set aside.
5.Brush both sides of the burger buns with the
melted butter and set aside.
6.Grill the burgers directly on the grill for 7 to 8
minutes, turning once, for medium-rare. Move
the burgers away from the heat to rest on a
warm (but definitely not hot) part of the grill. Top
each burger with a slice of cheese. Grill the cut
side of the buns for about 1 minute, until toasted.
- Use tongs to transfer the pork belly slices onto
a hot grill and cook for about 2 minutes. Flip and
repeat until the slices are done to your liking; I
like them crispy. Transfer to a paper-towel-
lined plate when cooked to desired doneness.
8.Brush the tops and bottoms of the buns with
the hickory sauce.
- Slide the cheeseburgers onto the buns and
top each with lettuce, tomatoes and three slices
of the reserved pork belly. Serve the burgers
