Recipe For Pork Patties

I realized when I made my lamb burgers that lamb is far too expensive to make patties from for everyday, general consumption. Straight away I had another recipe in mind, but as with most things in my life, time ran away with me. Before I knew it, Dave turned 60 and we had a week long celebration, my sister left for Australia which meant another trip to Johannesburg and the burger patty competition winner was announced. A sirloin burger has won the competition but to me, that is just another meat patty. I kept my recipe in the back of my mind and had actually decided to make sausages out of the meat instead. But, I still have not got sausage casings, and the pork pieces came out of the freezer for eating. I have used pork as my basis for the patty, and as I am all about healthy eating at the moment, I made small patties, and we ate less than we would have if I had made larger ones.

  4. Those look great. You’re so right, lamb is great but I can’t eat it too often or I’d blow the budget.

  11. These sound delicious… though I must say I have a real soft spot for lamb burgers… especially with coriander, ginger, garlic and chilli… wonderful with hommus! Your pork ones are yummy with the good mixture of herbs.
