Wasn't A Disaster, Wasn't A Triumph

Following on from Friday's post The Great Gluten Free Oyster Sauce Shortage I did end up making some pretty good pork burgers with a little creativity. I really didn't expect them to turn out as good as they did so I wasn't taking mental notes as I was creating them and I'm not the best when it comes to taking photos of recipes that I intend to post, so you sure as hell ain't getting a photo for this one. Bad blogger I know. Must try harder with the photos.

Anyway, I ended up using coconut milk as the consistency was the closest thing I could think of to oyster sauce, to that I added a generous amount of soy sauce and a few drops of fish sauce. I think that was it. Combined with the minced onion and garlic and a good pinch of garlic salt they turned out pretty tasty. The main thing that I want in my burgers is flavoursome moisture, they can't be dry or bland. The coconut milk made sure of this and though they will never be as good as my original pork burgers, I'd have them again while the gluten free oyster sauce shortage continues.

If you read the original post from Friday this will make sense:

Shortly after posting I got an email that read: OH NO NOT THE SHRIMP PASTE.

I didn't.
