Tomato Pork Burgers

Tomato Pork Burgers

This recipe makes juicy, tomato flavored burgers that don't require any sauce to go with them - they are moist enough. Another good thing about this recipe is that the eggs are optional - if you don't have any at hand you can just skip them altogether, it won't change the taste much. You will need to blend fresh tomatoes, though, so you do need to have a blender of some kind handy. If you can get a hold of cherry tomatoes - it'll work even better but generally any ripe tomatoes will work. The trick is to soak the oats in tomato juice and then mix them with the ground pork (you can use any ground meat).


* 2 pounds ( 1kg ) ground pork
* 4 oz ( 120g ) steel cut oats
* 1-2 small ripe tomatoes
* 3 egg yolks (optional)
* pepper, salt, garlic powder for taste


1. Blend tomatoes into tomato juice.
2. Pour tomato juice into a bowl and season with pepper, salt and garlic powder for taste.
3. Stir in the oats and let them absorb into the juice.
4. Add meat and mix well. Let soak for a few minutes.
5. Split into 4 or 6 portions.
6. Make them into burgers. Cling film the burgers you are won’t be cooking for later and keep in the freezer for up to a month.
7. Bake in the oven at 200 ºC/392 ºF uncovered until cooked through. 30 min 15 min each side.
