Using many of the same ingredients as classic pork meatballs, this mouthwatering burger features a juicy ginger pork patty, crunchy cabbage and cashew slaw, and zingy sriracha mayo – all sandwiched between a toasted garlic butter bun.

  1. Put all the patty ingredients in a bowl with 2 tsp water and mix well. Set aside for 20 minutes to marinate.
  2. Stir the slaw ingredients together in a bowl, then set aside. In a small bowl, combine the mayo and sriracha sauce.
  3. Divide the pork mixture into 4 even-sized balls. Pat them into 1·5cm (3/4in) thick patties.
  4. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a low-medium heat. Add the patties and press lightly with a spatula. Cook for 7-8 minutes on each side, until the pork is cooked through with no pink meat remaining. Transfer to a plate to rest.
  5. Stir the softened butter and minced garlic together. Spread a thin layer of the garlic butter on the cut sides of the buns. Toast them face down in the pan for a minute or so until they are warm and lightly charred.
  6. To assemble your burger, spread the base bun with the sriracha mayo, then layer on a couple of lettuce leaves, a patty, and a generous serving of slaw.
