Try to remember the last time you bought a pork item at a fast
food restaurant in North America. Not a ham sandwich from Subway
or a breakfast sandwich from Tim Hortons but a pork burger from
MacDonald’s, Wendy’s, A&W, or Burger King. They have tried in the
past offering the McRib from McDonalds but the closest permanent
pork menu item, is an offer of bacon to act as a flavor accent but no
real pork burgers. Now in 2018, we have the pulled pork sandwich
which comes lathered in BBQ sauce, which actually might make
a lasting impression but is it really a pork product or a sauce
product? (Figure 1). Pork vs Beef Burger, What’s the Difference FAT.
Ground pork is relatively cheap when compared to beef burgers,
sometimes almost half the price of regular ground hamburger (beef
burger) but pork burgers have not made much progress into the
fast menu in North America. Maybe it is the amount or type of fat?
In Japan, they describe a pork and beef burger mixture as `aibiki
niku’. The mixture can reach 50/50 and the flavour is described as
being `un-detectable’ from standard 100% beef burger. If it is 100%
beef, then it is often labelled as `100% Wagyu’ beef burger.
