Phil Vickery's juicy pork patties

Phil Vickery's juicy pork patties

Cheap and very very tasty, serve these juicy pork patties, created by celebrity chef Phil Vickery, with spicy apple sauce

Serves: 4 - 6
Cost approx: £0.80 per portion
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

What you need:

  • 450g lean pork or turkey mince
  • 2 tbsp fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • zest of half a lemon
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp allspice or cinnamon
  • 100mls cold water
  • 2 large Bramley apples
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

What you do:

  1. Mix the pork or turkey mince with the sage, oregano, thyme, lemon zest and season well, then if necessary add a little of the beaten egg to bind together.
  2. Mould the mixture into eight patties, about 7cm diameter.
  3. Cook the patties in a non-stick frying pan with two tbsp of the olive oil, for 8 - 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Be careful not to let the outsides overcook before the middles are cooked right the way through.
  4. Place the other 2 tbsp of oil into a saucepan and heat gently.
  5. Add the spice, water and the chopped apples, and cook for 15 minutes until the apples are soft and pulpy and you have a nice thick stew.
  6. Finally, season with a little salt and pepper.
  7. Serve the patties with the spicy apple stew as a dipping sauce.

Bramley Apples

Bramley Apples

The Bramley is rightly recognised by professional chefs and home cooks alike as the best apple for cooking. Grown only in Britain, the Bramley’s unique qualities make it one of the most versatile ingredients, equally at home in a savoury stir fry as a traditional apple pie.
