step-by-step directions
  • Make the burgers: Build a charcoal fire or heat a gas grill. On a work surface, combine the meats and form the burgers into 4 equal-size patties. Season liberally with salt and pepper.
  • Place the patties onto a grill or grill pan and grill for 3 minutes. Flip and add a slice of cheese.
  • Grill for 3-4 more minutes for medium rare. Remove and set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix together the pulled pork and St Louis BBQ sauce and cook until warmed through. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Pour the butter into the pan. Place the buns in the pan, cut-side down, and toast, about 2 minutes.
  • Place a heaping tablespoonful of the pulled pork on the bottom half of each bun. Top with a burger and a few slices of picked red onion and a spread ShaSha sauce onto the top half of the bun (get ShaSha sauce recipe here). Cover each with the top half of the bun and serve immediately.
