Grilled Pork Burger with Fennel and Pistachios

These burgers are sweet and delicious

Serves 4
To Cook

Mix all of the ingredients together.

Fry a teaspoon of the mixture to check seasoning. Adjust as necessary.

Form the mixture into burgers, either 4 large or 8 small, and chill until ready to cook.

Heat a heavy grill pan until quite hot.

Grease the burgers lightly with olive oil and place on the hot grill to cook.

Allow to become golden brown on one side before turning. Control the heat carefully and cook the burgers, turning occasionally until fully cooked through.

This takes about 15 minutes and the burgers will feel firm to the touch.

Serve the burgers on hot plates with your sauce and vegetable of choice.


Bramley Apple and Plum Sauce

Peel, quarter and core the apples. Cut each quarter in half. Place in a small saucepan with the sugar and water. Quarter the plums and remove the stones and add to the apples. Cover the saucepan with a tight fitting lid and cook on  a very low heat. The apples and plums will collapse to a frothy fluff. Allow to cool a little and then lift the skins off the pieces of plum. Stir well to mix the apples and the plums and taste and if necessary add another pinch of sugar.
