These high-protein pork burgers are the perfect post-workout meal. They’re made with peanut butter as well as the pork, so you get a double hit of protein to feed your muscles after they’ve been worked hard.

Ginger, soy sauce and some tasty peanut butter dressing help give this dish a flavoursome Asian twist. Serve with sweet potato wedges and salad for a low GI option.


Ingredients (makes 4 burgers)

500g lean minced pork (5% fat)

2tbsp Hi-PRO peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)

1tbsp Thai green curry paste

1cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and grated

1tbsp light soy sauce

1tsp light olive or vegetable oil

To serve:

8 rashers streaky bacon

1 large vine tomato, sliced into 4

2 large handfuls salad leaves

½ small red onion, finely sliced

For the dressing:

1tbsp Hi-PRO crunchy peanut butter

1tbsp olive oil

1tsp soy sauce



Place the pork mince in a large bowl with the Hi-PRO peanut butter, curry paste, ginger and soy sauce and mix thoroughly. You may find it easier to do this with clean hands.

Divide the pork mixture into four equal parts and form into patties/burgers. Cover and refrigerate if required.

Brush a griddle pan or frying pan with one teaspoon of oil, then heat and fry the burgers over a medium heat for about five minutes then turn and cook for a further five minutes, or until completely cooked through.

Meanwhile grill or fry the bacon rashers and keep warm.

Make the dressing by mixing together the Hi-PRO peanut butter, olive oil and soy sauce.

When the burgers are ready, top each with a slice of tomato and two rashers of bacon. Serve with salad leaves and red onion then drizzle over the dressing.

The burgers could also be served with a side of sweet potato wedges, simply peeled and roasted in a little oil, salt and pepper until tender.
