These Oriental burgers are a fabulous twist on the classic burger in a bun. The spice paste is sweet, sour, salty, hot – and delicious. If it sounds too daunting to make from scratch (though it shouldn’t, as you can just throw everything into a food processor) use a jar of ready-made Thai red curry paste from the supermarket. This recipe only takes 10 mins to prepare and 15 mins to cook meaning it’s an extra speedy mid-week meal that you and the kids can enjoy together.

Ingredients

For the Thai spice paste:
  • 1 bunch coriander
  • 3tbsp breadcrumbs
  • Half red onion
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 lemon grass stalk, woody outer layer removed
  • 1 large red chilli, deseeded
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 20g creamed coconut
  • 1tsp fish sauce
  • 1tsp light soy sauce

For the burgers:

  • 800g pork mince

Make Thai grilled vegetables to go with the burgers by marinating asparagus, spring onions, red peppers and sliced courgettes in a mix of coconut milk, peanut butter, Thai fish sauce and light soy sauce for 30 mins, then cooking under a medium grill.

Method

  1. Put all the ingredients except the pork into a food processor and whizz to a paste.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the pork and Thai paste together with your hands.
  3. Divide into four balls, then shape into burger patties with the flats of your hands.
  4. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and cook the burgers for around 12-15 mins, flipping every minute to ensure they are evenly cooked all the way through. Serve on ciabatta rolls.
