SPICED PORK CAKES

Cooking a full meal on Fridays,  after a busy week can be stressful to say the least.
This recipe is designed to save you the hassle and equally allow you to enjoy a tasty dish.
You can include any vegetable of your choosing, however I prefer Carrots as it lends its sweetness to the dish.
Shitake mushrooms are my preference for this recipe as it gives the dish more depth of flavours. You can get Shitake mushrooms from most Supermarkets or your local grocers.
Adding the Sesame oil to the mixture makes it moist when cooked.
Try the recipe and feel free to leave your comments about your feedback.
Happy Friday!

Ingredients 
250g of minced Pork
1 medium sized finely diced Onion
20g of peeled and grated Ginger
1 large clove of grated Garlic
2 tablespoonfuls of Sesame oil
20g of finely chopped Coriander 
2 finely diced Green or Red Chillies
40 g of chopped Shitake or Oyster Mushrooms 
40g of grated Carrots (optional).
Salt to taste

Extra 2 tablespoonfuls of Sesame oil.

 

Method 
Place the minced Pork into a bowl and add all the remaining ingredients, apart from the mushrooms. 
Mix everything together till well combined.


Add the Mushrooms and mix till combined.

 

Preheat your grill to 200*c

Roll a golf size ball of the mixture in between your cleaned hands, dipped into the Sesame oil.

Apply pressure in between your hands to form a disc with the Pork mixture and place it on your baking tray.
Keep doing this till you have used up the mixture.

You can reserve some for later by freezing it for about a week.

You can choose to fry the disc 3 minutes on each side using Sesame oil (this lends the dish a unique flavour). 

Place your baking tray in the grill for 10-15 minutes or until browned.
Check it's cooked through by opening one up. It shouldn't have a pink colour but instead a light brown colour and a clear juice.

 

Serve immediately with your preferred salad and a sweet chilli dip.

Enjoy!
