In today’s post I bring together a few previous posts and show you how they can become a meal. These previous posts include yesterday’s post for Sauteed Red Cabbage and one from a week or two ago for Pulled Gammon.
Ross has a bit of a thing for pulled pork, hence the reason we both came up with our pulled gammon ideas but he also goes nuts for a pulled pork burger. It’s always the first thing he picks off a menu when we eat out (also sometimes one of the most expensive things on the menu if you consider that it’s just a burger?!). So why not recreate it for him at home but in a more interesting and perhaps a more healthy way!
Yes they are really good, I can’t deny that. Finger licking tasty. When asked to describe them Ross says “Melt in your mouth” – high compliments indeed.
I used my Mum’s Special Marinade for this recipe, as featured on the post, but any of the ideas on there could be trialled or any other ideas you may have (why not try a little honey or honey and mustard if the sauce I’ve used doesn’t sound like something you would fancy).
With regards to the red cabbage, the flavours for my particular recipe may not be to your taste. To reduce the tartness of the cabbage simply add more sugar when you are cooking. If you want to forgo the cider vinegar altogether, fry the cabbage with a little butter and seasoning until soft and you will get a rather agreeable but still tasty cabbage.
Happy burger making/eating, I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!!
Pulled Gammon Burger
4 crusty bread rolls (sliced in half)
250 g pulled gammon
3 tbsp clear honey
3 tbsp tomato ketchup
3 tbsp mustard
For the salsa
2 beef tomatoes (finely diced)
1/2 red onion (finely diced)
1 small chilli (seedless and sliced thinly)
Juice of half a lime
Salt and Pepper
For the Red Cabbage
1/2 onion (diced)
1/2 small red cabbage (thinly sliced)
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
Create your salsa first mixing all the ingredients together. Put to one side. Cook the red cabbage according to the instructions in the recipe (link above).
Mix the honey, ketchup and the mustard together to create the marinade. Add both the marinade and the gammon to a griddle pan and heat whilst making sure that all the gammon is covered in the marinade. Griddle the meat until it begins to turn golden.
Layer the burger up starting with the red cabbage, the salsa and then the pulled gammon. Serve.
