Having just had one of the best bank holiday weekends out in the sunshine I thought it was time I shared with you a recipe I made this weekend. If there is one thing that is essential about this first May bank holiday, it is the necessity to fire up the BBQ. I am pretty sure most of you will have had one or been invited over to one this weekend. But next time the BBQ is fired I think you should liven things up a bit by trying out my spicy pork burgers.
I was asked by Lea & Perrins to come up with a recipe using Worcester sauce. They have teamed up with the guys from SortedFood and have been making a series of recipe videos using what I believe is one of the classic British condiments. There must have been a time when every household had a bottle of this in their cupboard. Is it in yours?
I would never dream of making a Bloody Mary without it, nor a Cottage Pie. It always goes into my onion gravy and I usually add a splash to a meat ragu or a slow cooked beef dish. Adding a few drops to my coleslaw along with a spoon of Dijon mustard peps it up perfectly.
Now let me introduce you to this burger. A rival to any of the finest, fanciest of meat patties you are ever likely to have eaten. I’m talking pork burgers here. I love pork and I wanted to create a burger that conveys to you just how much I love it. And chillies. So, here it is. A burger that might just have you sneaking another one before anyone else does, piling in a few pickled jalapeños before you do. I would far rather eat two stupendous burgers than a burger and chips any day. Would you?
The Sorted guys have added it to a Classic Caesar salad dressing. Nice touch lads!

- -1 packet of pork mince (500g approx),
- -4 large spring onions finely sliced,
- -1 red chilli finely chopped (de-seeded if you like them to have a mild heat),
- -1 bunch coriander roughly chopped,
- -2 tbsp Lea & Perrins Worcester sauce,
- -1 tbsp Mexican smoked chilli paste or 1tbsp chipotle chilli powder/smoked paprika,
- -Salt & Pepper
- -Good quality burger buns or bread/brioche rolls
- 1.Place the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and combine well before shaping into 4 large patties or 6 medium patties,
- 2. Put the burgers onto a baking tray or plate, cover with cling film and leave them to chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm up,
- 3. Cook the burgers on the BBQ for 15 minutes or fry in a griddle pan for 15 minutes until cooked through
- These burgers are even better served with a smoked chilli mayo, pickled jalapeños, shredded lettuce and some coleslaw on the side. Some spicy roast potatoes would also work really well with these seriously tasty burgers.
