  • 500g lean minced pork
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 2 tsp mixed dried herbs
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1 red onion , thinly sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 4 burger buns , each sliced in half
  • 4 handfuls mixed salad leaves
  • 100g Red Leicester cheese, sliced
  • 1 pinch salt, to season
  • 1 pinch pepper, to season


Step 1

Mix together the mince, garlic, spring onions, carrot, dried herbs and fresh herbs. Season well, then shape into 4 burgers. Cover and chill until ready to cook.

Step 2

To make the tomato and onion relish, put the onions, tomatoes, vinegar and mustard into a bowl. Season, toss together and leave to marinate while cooking the burgers.

Step 3

Preheat the chat-grill pan, grill or barbecue. Cook the burgers for 6-7 minutes on each side.

Step 4

Lightly toast the burger buns on the cut sides. Top with some salad leaves, then place a burger on top of each one. Finish off with slices of Red Leicester cheese and serve with tomato and onion relish.

Step 5

Cook's tip: for a blue cheese burger, top with slices of Stilton.
