    Minced Pork
    HI,
    Just bought a packet of minced pork and was wondering how to make pork burgers.
    I do have some apples, red onion, red peppers, egg.

    I need a basic but tasty recipe............and easy too. I don't have a burger press but I do have a grater. I don't have a foodmixer but I do have a hand whizzer. I intend to cook them on the George Foreman.

    Unless you have some scrummy other recipes for minced pork.....ta.x




    just to qualify for the O/S ers......

    I have cleaned out the downstairs loo, had the w/machine on and d/washer and been out looking at curtain material to make my own, without success I have to say.

    I usually add some thai green curry paste, salt, pepper and some chopped red onion to the minced pork. Lovely in a roll with some fresh coriander along with the salad and mayo. sort of (unauthentic) thai flavour.

    You can easily improvise a burger press using two ramekins one slightly larger than the other so it just fits inside it, line it with clingfilm and pack your burger mix in then simply put another layer of cling film over it and press down with the smaller rameking using a cloth and not too much pressure as you don't want either to crack or shatter, pull out the cling film top and bottom layers in one and your burger comes with it.

    Hi, Pandas, and welcome to Old Style!

    Pork and apple burgers will be tasty - grate your apple (no need to skin it) and mix well with the mince. Season with pepper, and shape into burgers. Pork mince tends to be *wetter* than beef, so you shouldn't need to add egg. Cook and serve in a toasted bun, with strips of pepper on the side (or fried with sliced onion).

    Alternatively, try this recent thread - recipes for pork mince.

    You beat me to it! I don't want to hi-jack your thread but I have some pork mince in my freezer which needs using up so would love some ideas on what to make with it. I had a recipe for a meat loaf which I lost and pork burgers sound great.

    Some examples:

    You could add some white pepper or perhaps a pinch of mustard to the mix for a little bite, a little ground black pepper perhaps? even a few sesame seeds (Don't beat me with a stick I know not everyone has them scrape them off a burger bun)
    A nice angle would be to fritter the apples, cut some really fine slices and dip them in a little batter and fry and use as you would onion rings to garnish, that way if you hear the cry "but I don't like apple" you haven't got an unfed kid someone just get's an extra apple fritter.

    It's an honour! If I were you, I'd grate the onion in - that way the burger holds it shape better. I onion, I apple, 4 burgers - sounds about right.

    That'll be 2 each When shall I be round!

    I was going to suggest grating the onion too. I made them last week and added a pinch of herbs from the garden or dried mixed herbs if you've got them.
    Oh and I added an egg to to make it all stick together.

    Yeah but just think of the publicity you'd get from the kids when their mates tell them they had a big mac and they defend your haute cuisine to the hilt.

    now I can make ratatouille (just not spell it) and I have most of the stuff to go in!

    that sounds better.

    so do I make the balls seperate, then pop them in cooked or uncooked, does it go in the oven or on the top.

    That's probably because it is generally sprinkled on takeaway pizzas which unfortunately are generally about as Italian as Boris Yeltsin
