Spanish Pork Burger recipe
What can we say about the Spanish. Centuries of history, glorious coastlines and vibrant cities full to the brim with culture. Of course there's that, but they're also magicians with pork!
Take a look at this Spanish-style pork burger, and consider cooking up a storm ready for the bank holiday sun we're supposed to be getting.
Follow along with the recipe below:
- 64g mayonnaise
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 32g chopped flat-leaf parsley
- 1 tablespoon Sherry vinegar
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
- 4 thin slices of serrano ham
- 900g ground pork
- 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
- 110g Idiazábal cheese, shredded (or another spanish cheese)
- Burger buns, or 4 crusty French rolls, split
- 1 beef tomato, sliced
- 4 whole jarred piquillo peppers, slit open
- In a small bowl, combine your mayonnaise, garlic, parsley and vinegar. This is your sauce, baby. Season as you like with salt and pepper.
- Light your BBQ to medium/high, and in a pan, heat the 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the ham; cook over moderately high heat, turning once, until crisp, 2 minutes. Take out to the side and allow to drain.
- Mix the pork, paprika, 1 tablespoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
- Grill over moderately high heat for 5 minutes per side, or until just cooked through. Top with the cheese, cover and cook until melted.
- Transfer to a plate.
- Brush the cut side of the rolls with oil and grill. Spread the rolls with the mayonnaise, add your tomato and lettuce and other good bits, then the burgers and top with the piquillos and ham.
