Pork burgers are a delicious meal that can be paired with many sides.

Pork burgers have a mild flavor and soak up flavors well, making them great for pairing with more delicate ingredients like cheese and greens.

There are some suggestions for what to serve with pork burgers in this blog post that will make your mouth water whenever you think about them.

What is special about pork burgers?

First, let’s see what is special about pork burgers.

A pork burger is simply a burger with pork patties that are made from ground pork mixed with other ingredients.

You can get creative with pork burgers and make them your own by adding your favorite ingredients like onions, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese slices, bacon, or fried eggs.

Or, if you prefer, stick to a simple recipe that is quick and easy with just a bun and a pork patty.

You can make your own pork burgers or buy them pre-packaged in the store or any fast-food restaurant.

Pork burgers are a great alternative to classic beef burgers and offer many health benefits as well as versatility in cooking styles and recipes.

They’re also much more economical than beef, while still providing nearly all of the same nutrients you need from meat in your diet!

8 best side dishes to serve with pork burgers

Many people opt for pork burgers as a quick meal for their busy lunches.

But if you want to turn this dish into a hearty meal, or at least, make it more delicious, here are some side dish ideas for you:

Garlic cream sauce

Garlic cream sauce is the perfect complement to these pork burgers, and it’s so easy to make you can throw it together in a few minutes.

The sauce won’t thicken up as much as you might expect because of the milk—it will just have an airy texture.

But the flavor is amazing!

You can use any kind of milk you have on hand in this recipe: whole, low-fat, or nonfat.

If there is leftover garlic cream sauce after several spoons over your pork burgers, you can use it as a dipping sauce or drizzle over other dishes like steamed and roasted veggies or mashed potatoes.

Corn on the cob

Corn on the cob is a classic side dish that goes well with pork burgers.

It’s easy to prepare and extremely popular in Tex-Mex cuisine, where it’s often served as street food.

Corn on the cob is also a great source of carbohydrates and fiber, so it makes for a healthful addition to your meal.

By simply brushing some melted butter and a variety of spices over the fresh corn and grilling it, you can have a side dish with tons of flavors that will blow your mind.

Corn salad

Another corn-based dish to pair with pork burgers is corn salad.

It’s easy to make, but it does take some time for the flavors to meld together.

If you’re looking for something more immediate, try making a quick vinegar-based dressing for your corn salad instead of using mayonnaise.

You can add whatever vegetables you have on hand, but do try to include some tomatoes and red onion.

If you’re looking for a meaty dish, consider adding some crumbled bacon or ham to the mix.

Then just toss it all together with your favorite dressing before serving it alongside your homemade burgers.

French fries

Sometimes, the best answer really is to serve pork burgers with fries.

French fries are a great way to get your meal that extra bit of crunch and flavor, while also getting some good fiber and carbs into your body.

It’s easy enough to make them yourself — just grab some potatoes, fry them in oil until they’re browned on both sides (you can use a deep-fryer if you have one), season with salt and pepper as desired, then enjoy!

Roasted potatoes

Roasted potatoes are a classic accompaniment for fried or grilled pork burgers.

The roasting process gives them a crispy outside and soft interior that’s perfect for soaking up any sauce on your burger.

You can also use roasted potatoes as a substitute for French fries, but it is best to slice the potatoes into wedges when serving with pork burgers.

Green salad

The classic accompaniment to pork burgers is a green salad.

This is one of the easiest salads ever, as it requires no cooking whatsoever.

Moreover, the possibilities are endless when it comes to green salads.

Just chop up some lettuce, cucumber, tomato, and onion (or any other type of leafy greens), add some crumbled feta cheese on top, and dress with lemon juice, vinegar (I like balsamic), and olive oil.

Now you have a healthy and refreshing side to offset the richness and greasy taste of the burger.

Broccoli slaw

Broccoli slaw is another great side dish to serve with pork burgers.

Broccoli slaw makes a great substitute for coleslaw when serving pork burgers, since it uses the same ingredients but swaps out cabbage for broccoli.

It’s an easy recipe that allows you to use up the broccoli in your fridge.

Just cut up a head of broccoli into small pieces and mix with shredded carrots, mayonnaise, vinegar, and salt.

You can also add some raisins if you like them!

Carrot sticks

Carrots are high in potassium, vitamin A, and many other antioxidants as well as vitamins and minerals.

They are extremely good for our health and our vision.

When choosing your carrot sticks, stay away from those that come in bags or tubs of baby carrots; these have been peeled by machines and can be coated with wax so that they don’t dry out quickly.

Instead, buy them fresh and make your own carrot sticks, slightly roast or toss them with your favorite spices and herbs.

You will love how sweet, earthy, and crunchy they are with a beautiful orange color.


Whether you’re making burgers for a family dinner or serving them at a cookout, there are many different foods to choose from.

We hope that this article has given you some ideas of what dishes go well with pork burgers or if you’re unsure which one to serve next time around.
