Ingredients
  1. 5 Green Plantains
  2. Coconut Oil
  3. 2 Pounds ground pork
  4. 3 Tablespoons onion powder
  5. 2 Tablespoons dried oregano
  6. 3 Teaspoons garlic powder
  7. 1 Lime - Juiced
  8. Shaved deli ham
  9. Dijon Mustard
  10. Dill Pickles (sliced)
  11. Swiss Cheese (optional)
For the buns
  1. Peel the plantains and slice into 2-inch-thick rounds.
  2. Boil plantain rounds until soft, about 5 minutes.
  3. Smash the plantains flat.
  4. In a skillet, melt a few tablespoons of coconut oil over medium-high heat.
  5. Fry flattened plantains until brown and crispy, about 3 minutes per side.
For the burgers
  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Use your hands to mix everything together thoroughly.
  3. Form the burgers roughly the same size as the plantain buns.
  4. Cook the burgers in the skillet, adding more oil if needed, about 5 minutes per side.
  5. (For a smoky and vibrant flavor, grill the patties over an open flame instead of in the skillet.)
  6. To assemble, place a bun on a plate, top with a burger patty, shaved deli ham, pickles, mustard and cap off with another plantain bun.
