Goat meat burgers

By Erica Wright
Serves 4

600g goat meat - minced

130g bacon - finely chopped

1 onion - chopped

1 teaspoon ground allspice

½ teaspoon ground coriander

ground black pepper - hold off on the salt as bacon and soy are salty

2-3 tablespoons soy sauce

plain flour for dusting

olive oil for frying

4 tomatoes - halved

salad - to serve


1 Place all of the burger ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Shape into 8 burgers and dust lightly with flour.

2 Heat a little oil in a large, heavy-based frypan that will take the burgers in one layer. Add the burgers and fry for 3-4 minutes. Turn carefully and fry on the other side for another few minutes, then continue cooking until done. The length of time will depend on the thickness of the meat, but 8-10 minutes should just about do it.

3 A few minutes before the burgers are cooked, add the tomato halves to the pan and fry for a few minutes on each side.

4 Place the burgers on paper towelling when cooked, then serve with the fried tomatoes and a side salad.
