Lean Spicy Pork Burgers

Seriously tasty.  J approved, as did my tastebuds last night when I made them, and this morning when I had leftovers for lunch.

Ingredients:Lean pork burger ingredients

  • 500g low fat pork mince
  • 1tsp ground Maldon’s Smoked Sea Salt (normal salt will do)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tspn ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder (more if you like it hot!)
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain dijon mustard
  • 1tbsp oatbran
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large clove of crushed garlic

1. Set the George a-heatin’ to “eleven” (a grill will do just as well if George does not grace your establishment):
Turn on the George
2. Combine ingredients in a bowl, get in there with clean hands and mix everything thoroughly:
Combine the ingredients
3. Form the meat into patties, whilst avoiding tripping over the kitten who’s begging for scraps. Don’t feed the kitten after midnight or he’ll turn into a monster, if he’s not one already:
Don't feed the kitten after midnight
4. Cook until the burgers are browned and seriously tasty lookin’.  If you’re not on the Dukan diet, go ahead and cram these burgers into a bun with all the trimmings. Dukaneers, I had a pattie with chive cottage cheese – lovely!
** If you’ve got a George and he’s squeezable – go ahead and give him a squeeze at regular intervals to drain off excess fat.
The nutmeg is an unexpected ingredient – I have a memory at the back of my mind of someone making pork sausages with nutmeg, so I decided to give it a go.  It worked beautifully – very subtle.
