Asian Pork Patties

READY IN: 27mins




  • Place the ground pork/pork mince, carrot, beans, onion, coriander and 1 tablespoon of the fish sauce and optional egg (if using) in a bowl; use your hands to mix until all the ingredients are well-combined; divide the mixture into 12 portions and use your hands to shape each into 2cm-thick/3/4", round 5cm/2" patties.
  • Heat the oil in a large pan, preferably non-stick, over a medium-high heat; add half the patties and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until they are golden-brown; transfer the cooked patties to a plate, cover loosely with foil and set aside; repeat with the remaining patties.
  • Meanwhile, place the chilli, lime juice, sugar, extra oil and the remaining fish sauce in a small bowl; stir to combine and set aside.
  • Place lettuce leaves on the serving plates; top with the patties and drizzle with a little of the lime mixture; serve with the remaining lime mixture.
