The good ol’ NZ Pork Burger recipe
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
600g NZ pork mince
½ cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp smoked paprika
Zest of 1 lemon
2 gloves garlic, diced
1 large red onion, diced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large zucchini, sliced into ribbons
100g feta cheese
Large handful rocket leaves
Salt and pepper
In a large bowl, mix the NZ pork mince, egg, garlic, breadcrumbs, smoked paprika, lemon zest and salt and pepper together. Using your hands, make 4 even-sized burger patties, and set aside.
Heat some oil in a pan over medium heat, and cook the burger patties until brown – about 5 minutes each side.
Remove the patties, and in the same pan fry the ribbons of zucchini with the red onion and salt and pepper, adding the lemon juice when cooked.
Split the buns, brush with olive oil, and grill until golden.
To assemble the burger, place the zucchini mixture, rocket leaves and feta down first. Then place the NZ pork patty on top. Drizzle with mayonnaise and beetroot relish if desired.
