How To Make A Pulled Pork Cheeseburger — Recipe


As we come down from a long Memorial Day weekend, how do we recover from all of the amazing food—especially the Burgers—in which we’ve indulged?

If you ask us, the answer is to keep eating great Burgers.

It’s exactly that kind of tenacity that brings us this delicious recipe from Matt Jones, the sous chef at the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia, PA. The SugarHouse boasts not one, not two, but eight restaurants and bars to feed and hydrate the hungry masses that come to the casino for a good time. As such, Jones is no stranger to the particular palate of the Philly foodie.

But this particular Burger has a little something for everyone. The spice of the jalapeños is balanced perfectly by the sweet influence of barbecue sauce and cranberries, and the combination of beef and pork will ensure that there’s never a moment during your dining experience that you’ll think about eating anything else.
