Burgers....it's like they were perfectly created for the human hand to hold with both hands, or one if you're a pro.
But I truly don't understand how anyone can eat a burger with one hand without everything inside it falling everywhere.
Personally speaking, I could eat burgers everyday, and one of my favourite hobbies entails creating my own ''burger masterpieces'' but I have this major problem where I'll start cooking something without making sure I have all the necessary ingredients like this burger for example,
WHY DIDN'T I RELIZE THAT I HAD NO BURGER BUNS :(
I ended up using sandwich slices (so depressing).
The picture below isn't exactly how I wanted my burger to turn out...but I'm not complaining, it still tasted good :) I wasn't really paying attention to the size of the patty I was forming which is why this burger looks a little disproportionate (Am i making any sense?).
Serves two (depending on the size of the patty you're forming).
You can use ground beef, ground chicken, chickpeas or potatoes as a substitute for ground pork instead
INGREDIENTS - burger patty
4x burger buns
200g ground pork
1/4 cup flour (You won't need all of it)
1/2tsp garlic paste
1tsp BBQ sauce (I ended up using a little more than 1tsp.)
1tsp honey garlic sauce
1tsp hot sauce of your choice - I uses peri peri
INGREDIENTS - burger toppings
I used about two handfuls of salad mix from the pre packaged bags as awell as..
1/2 small onion
1/4 bell pepper
feel free to use any sauce as a spread for the burger buns. I used a little bit of a mild Thai chili sauce.
You can use other vegetables/toppings instead - as always, I'm using what I have in my kitchen.
1. In a bowl, combine the pork, and the other burger patty ingredients with your hands. Add the flour in last and add according to how wet/sticky your mix is.
2. Start forming a round patty shape with your hands - this mix will make 2large sized patties or 2-3 small/medium size.
3. On a medium heat over the stove (you can use the oven or grill instead), place your patties and turn over after 5 minutes. Make sure you press down on the patties gently with the back of the spatula. Cook for five minutes on each side - also depends on the power of your stove/grill.
4. While the patties are cooking, slice the zucchini, onion, and bell pepper and combine with the salad mix, garlic salt, pepper, chili flakes, and a small drizzle of sesame oil.
Grill the vegetables (or cook over the stove or in the oven), until cooked through to your liking.
5. BUILD YOUR BURGER.
TEARS OF JOY.
THIS IS MY FAVOURITE PART BECAUSE IT'S THE LAST STEP BEFORE FEEDING YOUR BELLY.
Spread the sauce on your bun and add the toppings and pork patty in no particular order.
There is no wrong or right way, It's YOUR burger.
