Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into chips

Add the chips to a baking tray with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil and a pinch of salt and pepper

Give everything a good mix up and put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min or until golden and crisp


Bash the lemongrass with a rolling pin, remove the tough outer layer[s] and discard

Chop the softer inner core[s] in half

Peel the garlic and shallot[s] and chop in half

Strip the mint leaves from their stems, discard the stems

Add the garlicshallot[s]lemongrass, half the mint leaves and half the coriander to a food processor and blitz until finely chopped – this is your lemongrass paste


Once blitzed, combine the lemongrass paste, pork mince and soy sauce in a large bowl and give everything a good mix up – this is your lemongrass pork mince


Divide the lemongrass pork mince into 2 [4] and shape into burger patties

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the patties to the pan and cook for 7-8 min on each side or until browned, crisp and cooked through (no pink meat) – these are your lemongrass patties


While the patties are cooking, peel the carrot[s], then continue to peel lengths until you end up with a pile of carrot ribbons

Add the carrot ribbons to a bowl with the rice vinegar and give everything a good mix up and set aside – these are your pickled carrot ribbons

Trim, then slice the spring onion[s]


Slice the ciabatta rolls in half

Add the halved ciabatta rolls to a baking tray (cut side up) and put the tray in the oven for 5 min or until they're hot and crusty


In a small bowl combine the chilli jam and mayonnaise – this is your sweet chilli mayo
