    Can you get skull and crossbones stickers?

    I almost always don't eat pork. If I had ground pork and had to, it would be sausage and gravy and homemade biscuits. Or again make it up like sausage and use it in a cornbread stuffing.

    I use ground pork for 2 reasons: 1- to combine with ground beef for meatloaf or 2) for steamed pork dumplings. OMGosh, I love the latter. They are a bit of work, but SO good.
    This is pretty close to my recipe; I add a bit of dry sherry to my mix.

    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Good ground pork has more flavour than beef, IMO, so I prefer it for meatballs, meatloaf, chili etc. i will buy about 2-3lbs of ground pork and cook it all then freezing after into meal portions. I simply haul out the portion and make whatever I fancy that day - hamburger soup, stir-fry, hash...

    Since ground beef burgers are called hamburgers would a ground pork burger be called a steak burger?

    Burrito's, as the best ones I ever had were from a local restaurant that is no more. Also wondered about putting it in Lasagna or such. Burgers, cook up some and toss it into beans and such.

    This thread is making me hungry.

    It's funny you say that (in more than one way)--we had a local chain restaurant here in my town (recently shuttered). It's best sandwich was a ground pork burger. The name of the restaurant? Steakburger.
