Jamaican Pork Burgers

Again with the Caribbean theme! These spicy little beggers are fantastic with my mango salsa, or with a dollop of yoghurt, or maybe just some extra hot sauce, if you’re nuts.

It's fabulocious, mon! (Note: not fabulocious when raw) (Ignore the kebabs)

Ingredients

Serves four hungry people

  • 500g/1lb of pork mince
  • Zest and juice of a lime
  • 1tsp of fresh thyme and oregano, chopped finely
  • 1/2tsp ground allspice
  • 1tsp harissa paste. Harissa is a chilli paste, typically Moroccan. But hey, it really works.
  • Two cloves of garlic, crushed
  • One large red chilli, chopped finely
  • 1tsp crushed chilli flakes
  • 2tsp grated ginger root
  • 1tsp salt, and pepper to taste

Again pretty simple – combine the ingredients, and mix well. You may find that the lime juice makes the mixture a little wet – if so, add breadcrumbs. Divide the mixture into four, form a ball from each part, and compress the ball to give you a burger. These are four fairly hefty burgers, so you could potentially make five.

Spicy and fantastic with a cold beer (substitute Red Stripe, or other Caribbean beers!)
