Directions

  1. Heat a grill to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. In a bowl, mix pork with fennel seeds. Form into 4 patties. On a large piece of foil, combine oil, peppers, and onion. Season with salt and pepper. Fold foil around vegetables and crimp ends. Grill packet until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 8 minutes. Season patties with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note

Indoor method: In an oiled grill pan or cast-iron skillet, cook vegetables over medium-high. Wipe skillet clean; cook burgers in same pan.
