How to Make It

Step 1

Combine pork and salt in a medium bowl; toss to combine.

Step 2

Place shallots in a food processor, and pulse until finely chopped. Add chopped cilantro and next 5 ingredients (through chiles); process until mixture is finely chopped. Add pork mixture; pulse 5 times or until mixture is well combined.

Step 3

Using wet hands, shape mixture into 15 (1-inch-thick) patties (about 2 tablespoons per patty). Heat a large grill pan over high heat. Add half of the pork patties. Cook for 5 minutes on each side or until done. Repeat the procedure with remaining patties. Arrange 3 lettuce leaves and 3 pork patties on each of 5 plates, and serve each serving with about 1/4 cup herbs and 2 lime wedges.

Step 4

Wine Notes: Try a light, crisp white to balance out the fiery chiles. Weingut Fred Loimer, Lois, Grüner Veltliner 2010 ($14) has plenty of refreshing acidity, plus a two-pronged hit of citrus aromas and spicy flavors that measure up to the sliders' aromatic lemongrass and galangal. --Scott Jones
