Make your cheat meal work for you with this delicious burger that's loaded with protein.
Southern barbecue is a cheat in any diet. For the guy trying to build muscle while staying lean, eating a plateful of fatty pork and beef swimming in sugar-laden sauce can take you pretty far off the rails. Equal parts protein and fat is a lousy cheat. And while this beef and pork burger is a cheat, it’s one that packs a massive amount of protein—82 grams—to 33 grams of fat, using a mixture of 90% lean ground beef and pork shoulder. We’ve also replaced butter in the traditional recipe with nonfat cooking spray. The result is a dish that retains rich barbecue flavor without delivering a knockout blow to your physique. Enjoy!
