Sweet & Tangy Pork Burger with Barbecue Sauce & Summer Squash Salad

Dinner and a movie is a classic combination. That is why Turner Classic Movies has partnered with PeachDish to bring you delicious menus inspired by some of the greatest movies ever made. This June we offer meals inspired by some of the iconic Hollywood musicals spotlighted in TCM’s Mad About Musicals!, airing all day Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the month. Try the Sweet & Tangy Pork Burger with The Wizard of Oz (1939) airing Thursday, June 7th at 8:00pm ET on TCM. In the factory that was MGM, this was clearly an exceptional project, one to draw even finer work than usual. Then, after it began to run on television, new generations changed its status from movie to phenomenon to something greater. No moment is unfamiliar, no performance or scene not beloved. As the on-screen prologue notes, time has been powerless to put its kindly philosophy out of fashion.” Like the Wizard of Oz, this Sweet & Tangy Pork Burger is a classic American dish with a splash of color that will take you to another land. As a nod to the Kansas farm that Dorothy calls home, the juicy burger patties are made with pork from Frolona Farm (in Franklin, GA), where heritage breed pigs are pastured and fully free to forage as they please. The summer squash and crisp lettuces are from small-scale farms, too, and add a brightness to rival any Yellow Brick Road.It’s a meal the whole family will love, and will remind you there is no place like home.
