G / ML CUPS / OZ

Ingredients:

  • 400g lean pork mince
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • Pinch chilli powder (optional)
  • 100g Stilton cheese, finely crumbled
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Ingredients:

  • 14oz lean pork mince
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • Pinch chilli powder (optional)
  • 4oz Stilton cheese, finely crumbled
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pork, red onion, rosemary, thyme, chilli powder (if using) and crumbled Stilton. Season with black pepper, then form into 4 burgers. Keep covered and chilled.
  2. When ready to cook, preheat the grill, barbecue or char-grill pan. Cook the burgers for 8-10 minutes per side, depending on their thickness (they should be thoroughly cooked).
  3. Split the burger buns and toast the cut sides, if you like. Top with salad leaves, then a burger. Finish each one off with a slice of Stilton and a maybe even drizzle of sweet chilli sauce!
  4. Serve with seasoned fries - regular or sweet potato.
  5. Cook's tip: For a great mini treat for parties and buffets, form the burgers into meatballs and bake in the oven at 200°C/fan oven 180°C/Gas Mark 6 for 20 minutes, then serve in warm pitta breads with salad and sweet chilli sauce.
