ASIAN PORK BURGER

INGREDIENTS
Sesame Seed Roll ; Pork Patty ; Asian Basting Sauce
Asian Salad ; Wasabi Mayonnaise ; Butter Lettuce

INGREDIENTS (PORK PATTY):
200g Pork Mince
¼ tsp Chinese 5-spice
¼ tsp Robertsons BBQ spice
¼ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Pepper
1 tbsp Vegetable oil for cooking

INGREDIENTS (ASIAN BASTING SAUCE):
1 tbsp Jimmy’s Steakhouse Sauce
1 tbsp Oyster Sauce
1 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Honey

INGREDIENTS (ASIAN SALAD):
¼ Red Pepper, julienned
¼ Yellow Pepper, julienned
1 Carrot, julienned
3 Mangetout Peas, julienned
2 Spring Onions, sliced diagonally
1 Red Cabbage Leaf, thinly shredded
¼ tsp Fresh Ginger, finely grated
1 tsp Fresh Coriander, roughly chopped
1 tsp Sesame Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste

INGREDIENTS (WASABI MAYONNAISE):
¼ tsp Wasabi Paste
2 tbsp Japanese Kewpi Mayonnaise

 

METHOD
1. Mix all the patty ingredients together, and form a tight ball. Rub your hands with a little vegetable oil and form the patty according to the size of your sesame seed roll. Turn the patty around and make sure all the meat is compact into a solid patty. Place the patty in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before cooking.

2. Heat a griddle pan until smoking hot. Place a little vegetable oil on your patty and rub the oil on both sides, then place the patty onto the hot griddle pan. Cook for 6 minutes on the one side, then turn over and cook for another 6 minutes on the other side. Make sure your pork patty is cooked right through. If you insert a toothpick into the centre, there should be no dark pink colour.

3. Mix all the basting ingredients together and brush the top of the patty, turn around for about 1 minute then brush the top again and turn over. The basting sauce needs to stick to the patty before removing from the heat.

4. Cut your sesame bun in half, place the butter lettuce on the bottom half, then add the pork patty.

5. Mix the Asian salad ingredients together and make sure the seasoning and sesame oil is distributed well throughout the salad. Place the salad on top of the patty.

6. Mix the wasabi paste and Japanese kewpi mayonnaise well together, then spread over the top half of the sesame seed roll.
