No buns? No problem! This nutritious take on an all-time classic uses crunchy, vibrant leaves of romaine heart to hold tonight’s mouthwateringly delicious pork burgers. The patties feature ground pork and minced shallots; they’re seasoned with a mixture of spices including paprika, onion salt and a sprinkle of brown sugar before being cooked in the pan. A combination of sour cream and lemon juice does double duty as both salad dressing for our arugula-apple salad and layer of sauce on our patties. This lean, green meal is ready to enjoy in only 20 minutes!
