Recipe: Homemade Sweet Chilli Pork Burger v2.0

For our burger night, I decided to revisit an old recipe - the Homemade Sweet Chilli Pork Burgers - which was a hit the last time around. I stuck to the same recipe for the patty but added on extra toppings such as a runny egg, streaky bacon and Gruyere cheese. Not forgetting the homemade burger buns which turned out beautifully.


In the afternoon, Baby C and I made these "Burger Order Sheet" to add a little fun factor to our evening. She helped write and colour ;)

Since I made a side salad, for my own burger, I decided to just put fried egg, bacon, burger patty, cheese, and shallots. Was this the ultimate burger? Not quite there yet, but it was pretty damn good. On this occasion, I did not toast the burger buns since I thought it didn't need it since the buns were fresh from the oven, but in future, I would definitely toast the buns - whether homemade or store bought, always toast it cos it just tastes so much better!



Let it flow, let it flow

Homemade Sweet Chilli Pork Burgers v2.0
Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 5-10 minutes
Cooking time: 12-14 minutes
Makes 6

Ingredients
500g pork mince
1 large onion, finely diced
3-4 garlic cloves, finely diced
3 tbsp sweet chilli dipping sauce
1/2 tsp dried parsley
5-6 tbsp panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1 egg
A pinch of salt

2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

6 homemade burger buns (recipe here)

To serve
3 shallots, sliced thinly
6 slices streaky bacon
Gruyere cheese, thinly sliced
Fried egg (optional but highly recommended)
Lettuce/ tomato/ cucumber (optional)
Picked chillies (optional)

Side dishes:
Salad (example here)
Truffle fries (recipe coming soon!)

1. Place the pork mince, onion, garlic, chili sauce, parsley, panko, salt and egg yolk into a large bowl and mix together with your hands. You may want to put on some disposable gloves for this as it can get pretty messy.


2. Divide into 6 patties, and mold each piece into a roundish shape around 1 inch thick. Cover with cling film and refrigerate until required. This will help them firm up.


3. Preheat the oil in a frying pan and then cook the burgers for 6-7 minutes on each side over a medium heat, or until cooked through. Halve your burger buns, spread with some butter and lightly toast them in a frying pan for 30 seconds.

4. Arrange each patty on a bun, top with bacon, fried egg, shallots and cheese. Serve with fries and a side salad.
