Ingredients

  • Burger buns
  • Mayo
  • Salad
  • Sliced Tomatoes
  • Butter
  • Cheddar cheese

Pork Patties;

  • 250 gms ground pork with some fat in it
  • 1 green pepper stem and seeds removed
  • 1 large white onion minced
  • Black pepper
  • Salt
  • Italian seasoning
  • Olive oil

Instructions

  • Knead the ground pork to give it a gooey texture.
  • Mince the prepped onion and green pepper.
  • Heat frying pan with a little olive oil. Cook the onion and pepper till rather dry but not browning. I think this brings out the aroma of the pepper and onions giving it a sweeter taste.
  • Let it cool before adding it to the ground pork.
  • Season with black pepper and Italian seasoning. Don't add salt first.
  • Leave it to infuse overnight or at least 3 hours in the fridge.
  • When you're ready to cook, heat a frying pan with a little oil. Shape the patty to the size of your palm and about 2 cm thick. Press it down slightly in the middle.
  • Before cooking it on the pan, sprinkle some salt and cook it salt side down for 3 mins on medium heat. Salt the uncooked side before flipping it over to sear for another minute and a half.
  • Put cheese on top and turn off the heat. Put a lid on to melt the cheese.
  • Butter your buns and assemble it according to your liking.
  • Eat with onion rings.
