  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp sweet smoked paprika or regular sweet paprika

  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt plus more if needed
  • 1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper

  • Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a small pan. Add the chopped onion and sate until lightly browned.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the ground pork with the sauteed onion and the rest of the ingredients.
