Pork Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries and Kale Slaw
10 oz. lean ground pork
1 sweet potato
Cajun or Creole seasoning of choice
2 potato buns
Bunch of kale
Red wine vinegar
Shredded cheddar cheese
Blue cheese dressing
Preheat oven to 450.
Slice potato length-wise and then cross-wise 1/4" and toss in mixing bowl with olive oil and salt and pepper. You can add creole or Cajun spice if you want. Place and separate on baking pan and cook for 15-20 minutes.
Put ground pork into a mixing bowl. Add seasoning and egg and fold until combined. Form ½” to 1” thick patties, depending on how thick you like your burgers.
Heat 2 tbsp. olive oil on medium high until hot. Cook patties; 4-6 minutes and then cook 3-4 the other side, depending on how done you want your meat.
While the meat cooks, tear the leaves off the kale stems and thinly slice. Thinly slice the cabbage. Combine in a bowl. Add vinegar and salt and pepper. Add mayo, blue cheese dressing and shredded cheddar cheese and mix until it looks like slaw.
Remove the meat and let rest for 5 minutes. While resting, in the same pan as you cooked the meat, separate the buns and cook face down on medium high until crisp. Add more olive oil if necessary.
While buns cook, combine mayo and Dijon mustard. When buns are cooked, put mayo/mustard on bottom half. Place patty on top. On top of that put some slaw. Serve the rest of the slaw and mayo/mustard sauce on the side with the sweet potato fries.
Enjoy! We give it 2 thumbs up!
In this artistic look at the cannibalistic cutting edge promoter of Apple computers, Jobs is pitted between his work and personal life. After years of ruthless pursuit of corporate success, and the near abandonment of his personal life, he must decide how to reconcile the two and redeem himself in both realms.
The movie stars Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen,Jeff Daniels, Michael Stuhlbarg, Katherine Waterston, Sarah Snook, Adam Shapiro, Perla Haney-Jardine, and John Ortiz. It was direceted by Danny Boyle. The acting and directing were good.
This is basically is a docu-drama of Jobs’ life. I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t write it himself. At a minimum, I suspect he had a large hand in its story-line.
While the story is really not told in a coherent time-line fashion and tends to be rather overly technical at times (I guess for the geeks watching), it is worth watching, if nothing else, to get an understanding of how the tech industry operates. It is mildly entertaining, but requires your full attention at times in order to follow complex tech issues.
Accordingly, we give it 2 half thumbs up … or a total of one thumb up :)
