Chilli Pork Sliders

My Mini Burgers
I'm back and with a recipe. If you're a regular reader you will know that the fact this is being posted meant it worked and worked well. My kitchen mojo seems to be returning.

The Glutenite suggested that I make these and I was more than happy to oblige as mini foods are very me, I like small portions. You can use any thick gluten free bread to make the buns for sliders but I opted for DS Ciabattas, they're a firm favourite here and worked a treat, each Ciabatta made two buns.

There's not many ingredients in the actual burgers, it's quite a basic mix for me but very full of flavour. This recipe makes 8 but you can of course alter the amounts to make more or less.

Ingredients:

220g Pork Mince
1 Large Chestnut Mushroom
1 Tablespoon Chilli Flakes
1 Small Onion
Large Pinch Sea Salt

Directions:
  • Put the pork mince into a container
  • Peel and roughly chop the onion, roughly slice the mushroom
  • Put into a mini chopper (or your version) add chilli flakes and salt, mix until a paste is formed
  • Put the mixture into the container with the pork mince

  • Section off slider portion sizes by halving the mix again and again until you have 8 portions

Couldn't be much more simple than that. To make up the finished sliders I used:

4 DS Gluten Free Brown Ciabattas
Lettuce Leaves
1 Tube Primula Burger Cheese (It's limited edition so won't be around forever)

I love all Primula Cheeses but this is the latest and possibly the best so far:

Little Kick To It
The overall flavour of these Sliders is delicately meaty, earthy due to the Mushroom and with a kick from the Chilli Flakes. I love the way that Pork and Mushroom goes together, it creates a lovely firm texture too which is a bonus when molding the sliders into shape.

I recommend using a cocktail stick through the middle of each to hold the sliders together.

I was at a loss for how to describe the Mushroom size other than as large and weighing it wasn't giving much away on my non digital scales so here's roughly the size I used:

A bit bigger or smaller isn't going to make too much difference, a few grams won't matter.

We had these on Friday for dinner and The Glutenite enjoyed them so much that we're having them again this evening. I think it says a lot about how good the Ciabattas worked as buns because he eats regular bread products a lot during the week for lunch and he loved these. They also work great for Eggy Bread and Croutons.

Providing that my Kitchen Mojo sticks around there should be at least one more new recipe this week.

Or you may get the reporting of another disaster, we'll see. I really hope not.
