  • Heat 1/4 c oil in fry pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat until hot but not smoking.
  • Meanwhile, shape 1/3 cup of mixture with your hands to form a patty that is approximately 1/3 inch think.
  • Repeat with remaining mixture, making 8 patties.
  • Working in batches of 4, fry patties, turning once, until golden brown. This takes approximately 2-4 minutes per side.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel to drain.
  • If pan becomes dry, add more oil as you go.
  • Cover patties with foil to keep them warm until ready to serve.

"This is an amazing recipe; the flavours are unique and delicious and it's so easy to make! I cooked the pork in a crock pot and it's delicious. I'm using the left over liquid for soup stock."
