But when the want for pork, herbs, and pricked veggies hit, I turn to this Herby Pork Burger Stack.

In this recipe, a pork burger is infused with Thai chiles and fish sauce, an assortment of quick pickled veggies, then a ton of fresh herbs. Easy, delicious, and full of flavor. This Herby Pork Burger Stack is perfect for a weeknight meal!

I love that it is all topped off with a spicy aioli. If you aren’t Whole30, you can just add some siracha sauce to your mayo with some lime, but to keep it Whole30 I just added a little cayenne pepper. It really enhances the burger!

Reduce heat to low and cover and continue to cook until pork is cooked through, about 7-10 minutes covered on low.
