This came about when I wanted to make a few burgers and thought:How am I going to flavour this? I thought of simple salt and pepper, chilli, just salt and garlic…. Then I thought, why not grate some ginger, and spring onions…. And then, I just took it from there…. Sometimes, a plain burger is too boring, and an injection of flavour is needed!
500 grams-1kg of Pork Mince-Works well with Chicken or Lamb.
2 Small pieces of Ginger
1-2 Spring Onions/Scallions
2 Cloves/Teeth of Crushed Garlic
1-2 Tablespoons of Light Soy Sauce
1/2 A Tablespoon of Dark Soy Sauce
A Good splash of Oyster Sauce
Vegetable Oil for frying
Open the pack of mince and transfer to a bowl. Chop the spring onion/s, and add this and crush the garlic also. Add the soy sauces, and the oyster sauce. Sprinkle black pepper, and peel (using a vegetable peeler, or making a scraping motion, with a sharp knife) and grate the ginger into the bowl.
Mix all ingredients thoroughly, and shape into about 6-8 balls-Possibly more depending on whether you use 500 grams or 1 kilogram of meat.. Or if you want to make quarter pounder burgers. Make sure to flatten each, with a palm pressed into it lightly, and shape until a round patty is formed. Heat some oil in a frying pan, and fry the burgers, for 3-4 minutes each side. When cooked, serve in buns, with Hoisin Mayo-Mayonnaise with a teaspoon of hoisin sauce; Lettuce and tomato, alongside some potato or cassava fries-Boil the cassava before frying.
