How to make it

  • Pulse blend 1 clove garlic and ½ medium size onion in a small amount of olive oil until almost combined into a spread. Add the blended mixture to a large bowl with the minced pork. Mix with cleanly washed hands while adding finely diced fennel and spring onion. Add salt and pepper to taste. Shape the meat patty into rounded oblong patties that roughly take the shape of the ciabatta bread, molded to about a one inch thickness. Cover and place in the freezer for 1 hour. Take it out of the freezer and put in the fridge till cooking time.
  • Final Assembly
  • Slice the ciabbata lengthwise and grill on a low - med heated flat grilling pan with a bit of olive oil. Brown all sides while pressing down on the bread with the back of a spatula to get more uniform carmelization and slightly flatten bread slices. Brush oil on the grill pan and grill the pork patties at medium heat until the meat is nicely browned. Assemble the burger with a leaf of lettuce, fried garlic and the caramelized onion and serve with your choice of accompaniments.

    Looks and sounds great, but I would have to cook the fennel a bitmto cut the strength of the flavor. Love ciabatta bread. Yun.
