I had a Nigel Slater moment last week. In his programme he often goes to the fridge and has a root about to see what he has. It may be that the TV crew have filled the fridge beforehand with the right kind of leftovers and odd bits of food. ...not the kind that are usually found in my fridge (bendy carrots, yoghurt at least one month out of date, slimy mushrooms, lettuce with brown edges). No, everything in the slater fridge is deli quality!
So ...I had, on a whim, made an impulse buy of minced pork. Not for me the impulse buying of clothes, shoes and handbags. Oh no. I was tempted by minced pork. How sad is that?
I had no real plans for my pork when I bought it so was wondering what to do with it. A rummage through the fridge proved, this time quite productive and my pork burgers were born.
500g minced pork
A handful of breadcrumbs
Finely chopped red chilli
Bunch of coriander chopped
Finely chopped red onion
Finely chopped garlic
Mix all together and shape into 4 burgers.
Coat in some oil and fry till brown on the outside and cooked through. Pop a bit of grated mozzarella on the top and put in a burger bun.
We ate two and I am looking forward the the other two (they are in the freezer)
