Homemade pork&herb burgers with rocket and meli melo tomato salad

Well, when it comes to homemade burgers I am first in a queue. There is simply nothing better! And when it comes to flavours or shapes you can extend the range of possibilities and stretch the imagination, use different spices, herbs, sauces, dips …so hey ho let’s go!

Homemade pork & herb burgers with rocket and meli melo tomato salad

Ingredients:

300 g pork lean minced meat

1 medium size onion, chopped

1 egg, lightly beaten

4 tbsp breadcrumbs

2-3 tbsp plain flour

dried herbs: thyme, parsley, sage – 3 good pinches of each,

1 tbsp soy sauce

salt, black pepper

4-6 tbsp of oil

For salad:

5-6 handfuls of rocket leaves

12-14 meli melo tomatoes

2 tbsp olive oil

squeeze of fresh lemon juice

salt, black pepper

Mix the meat with onion, egg and herbs. Add soy sauce, salt, pepper and breadcrumbs. Stir all until well blended. If the mixture seems too soft to form patties, lightly mix in more breadcrumbs. Then form into patties and lightly cover in flour. Cook on high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile prepare quick salad: mix rocket leaves, halved tomatoes and olive oil. Squeeze all with lemon juice and season.

When burgers ready serve on a hot plates with ketchup, mustard or your favourite relish. Bon appetit.

  1. I’m sure the burgers are amazing too, but the sides captured my attention, I love the simplicity, and both tomatoes and rockets are on my favourites list! I’ll try the burgers too, though :)
