Asian pork patties
These are super quick and easy to make and can be modified to tick boxes for fussy eaters.
Mince is often easier for picky eaters as it is relatively soft and requires less chewing than other meats.
The pork patties are a great way to share a family meal as we can easily prepare some to be plainer than others to tick boxes for a fussy eater.
500 grams pork mince
2 tbs soy sauce (often a win for fussy eaters as salty and umami)
1 dst sp oyster sauce (optional)
3 tsp chopped lemongrass – I used jarred (optional)
2 spring onions finely diced (optional)
Optional but not easily detectable in the end pattie:
1 tbs sesame oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp coriander powder
Add all ingredients except spring onions to the pork mince and allow to marinate (I usually give it a few hours, but if no time just mix prior to cooking!)
Add the chopped spring onions and combine well
Form into patties and bake on a non-stick baking tray for approximately 10 minutes at 180˚
If you prefer to have a brown, crispy outer, finish by frying quickly in a hot pan
*If wanting to test, I would recommend using 1/4 of the quantity
