Beef, pork and rocket burgers

Serves: Makes 6
Cooking Time: 25 mins plus 30 mins for chilling



  • 800g beef mince
  • 300g pork mince
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) dried oregano
  • 60ml (¼ cup) fresh-flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 40g Parmesan, freshly grated
  • 80g breadcrumbs
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 100ml sunflower oil, for frying
  • 150ml good-quality mayonnaise
  • 6 small gherkins, finely chopped
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) Dijon mustard
  • 6 Portuguese rolls, halved
  • fresh rocket leaves

Combine all the patty ingredients in a bowl and mix well with your hands. Form round patties and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.


Heat the oil in a large frying pan and gently fry the patties until cooked, about 10 minutes per side. Drain on paper towel.


In a bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, gherkins and mustard and spread this over the inside of the rolls. Place a patty on each roll, garnish with the rocket and tomato and serve immediately.
