Ingredients

  • 550 g pork mince (ground pork)
  • 50 g fine breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Southwestern All-purpose Spice Blend (see recipe here)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped, or use a garlic press
  • 250 g sweetcorn kernels, defrosted and drained
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

To serve :

Instructions

  • Roast the potato wedges - while the oven is preheating to 240°C/220°C fan-forced (460°F ; Gas Mark 8), get the potato wedges prepared as detailed below, finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Drain and/or defrost the sweetcorn. Prepare a leafy salad as per the recipe.
    Chop the Garlic
  • While the potatoes are cooking, make the pork rissoles. In a medium bowl, combine the pork mince, fine breadcrumbs, egg, spice blend, garlic, ½ the sweetcorn, the salt and a pinch of pepper. Using damp hands, form spoonfuls of the mixture into meatballs, then flatten to make 2 cm (¾") thick rissoles. Set aside. You should get 4-5 rissoles per person.
    Make Rissoles
  • In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the rissoles and cook until browned, 4-5 minutes each side. In the last 5 minutes of cook time, add the remaining sweetcorn and cook, tossing occasionally, until cook until charred and golden, 4-5 minutes.
    Cook the rissoles

To Serve :

  • Divide the potato wedges, pork rissoles and charred corn between 4 plates. Spoon the BBQ sauce over the rissoles and sprinkle with chives (see Note 1). Serve with the salad.

Cooking the Potato Wedges

  • Slice the unpeeled potatoes into 1 cm (⅜") wedges and place into a medium-sized bowl (see Note 2). Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle over the dried oregano and season generously with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and spread in a single layer on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Roast in the preheated oven until tender in the thickest part, 25-30 minutes. Turn the wedges half way though cooking and lower temp of oven if necessary. (see Note 3)

Notes

  1. For the low-calorie option, serve without BBQ sauce.
  2. Cut the potato wedges to a uniform size so they cook evenly in the allocated time.
  3. Potato wedges can also be cooked in a deep-fryer if you prefer.
