Serves: 4
  • 500g lean minced pork

  • 2 chopped spring onions
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five spice
  • 1 Teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon garlic granules
Prawn topping

  • 4 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
Beetroot and Pickled Ginger Salad
  • 1 pack vacuum packed cooked beetroot
  • 2 spring onions sliced
  • 4 slices of pickled ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of the liquid the ginger is pickled in
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
To Serve
  • 4 wholemeal buns (Add 6 syns each if not using as HEb)
  1. Mix together all the ingredients for the pork burger.
  2. Divide into 4 portions and shape into burger patties.
  3. Cook through either on the barbecue or on a roasting tin in a hot oven (approx 15-20 mins) As these are pork make sure that they are cooked all the way through.
  4. Just before the burgers are ready quickly pop the prawns either onto the barbecue or in a hot frying pan and cook for 30 seconds each side to just heat through.
  5. Transfer the prawns to a bowl and mix with the sweet chilli sauce.
  6. Place a burger onto the bottom half of each bun and top each one with 4 prawns and ¼ of the sweet chilli sauce.
  7. Add the top of the bun and serve.
Beetroot and Pickled Ginger Salad
  1. Drain the beetroot and dice into ½" cubes.
  2. Cut the slices of pickled ginger into matchsticks
  3. Combine the beetroot, ginger and spring onions together in a serving bowl, pour over the pickling liquid and vinegar and toss well before serving.
It's not essential but both the burgers and the salad benefit from being made in advance and chilling in the fridge to allow the flavours to blend.
