Pork Rissoles

Pork Rissoles

They may not look like much but these tasty little buggers are one of my husband’s favourite dinners. Pork Rissoles are so easy to make and whenever I make them I just can’t help myself but quote the Australian movie The Castle.
Darryl: “This is beautiful darl. What do you call these things again?
Sal: “Rissoles. Everybody makes rissoles darl”

PORK RISSOLES

Makes 12

Ingredients:
500g pork mince
3 cloves garlic
1 large onion
2 medium carrots
3cm knob fresh ginger
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste
1 egg
1 small handful of fresh parsley (optional)
1 tbsp olive oil for the pan

Method:

Finely chop the onion, mince the garlic and grate the carrots and place in a bowl with the pork mince.

Peel and finely chop the ginger and finely chop the fresh parsley. Add to the bowl.

Add the cumin, egg and salt and pepper and mix well.

Heat some olive oil in a fry pan on a low to medium heat.

Roll the mixture into small balls and then squish them down with your palm before putting into the hot pan.

Cook the rissoles until brown on one side and then flip with a spatula.

The cooking time will depend on how big you’ve made your rissoles and how hot your pan is.

Cook until cooked through and then transfer to some paper towel to drain the excess fat.
