Directions

Buns:

For the burgers: In a bowl, blend the ground beef with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Remove a small portion, about 1 ounce, and cook to check the level of seasoning. Add additional salt and pepper if needed.

Using about 8 ounces for each burger, form the meat into even-sized patties and flatten slightly (do not over-mix during the process).

Warm a griddle or pan over medium-high heat until hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the oil and patties and reduce the heat to medium. Cook on the first side until browned, 3 minutes, and then flip and repeat the process to the desired doneness. Remove and let rest.

For the pork: In a saucepan, warm the barbecue sauce over medium-low heat. Add the pulled pork and mix with the sauce until warm.

For the buns: In a flat pan, warm the buns over medium heat for 2 minutes. Butter the interior portion of the buns and cook until nicely toasted, 1 to 2 minutes.

To build the burgers, place the patties on the bottom buns. Top with the sauced pork and bun tops and serve.

Pulled Pork:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Sprinkle the Boston butt with the Cajun spice, salt and pepper and put in a deep roasting pan. Add the diced vegetables and bay leaves, and then cover with chicken stock. Wrap with plastic wrap and tightly cover with foil. Roast until tender, 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

Remove the pork from the stock and let cool. Shred with two forks.
