Pork and Apple Rissoles

Serves 4

  • 900g minced pork
  • 1 cooking apple, peeled and grated
  • 1 egg
  • handful of sage, finely chopped
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 vegetable stock cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cornflour
  1. Mix the mince, apple, egg and sage (reserving a pinch of sage for the gravy) together in a bowl and season well.
  2. Shape into eight equal balls and press flat to 1 inch thickness.
  3. Fry on a medium heat for 5 - 6 minutes on each side until cooked through, then place in the oven to keep warm.
  4. For the red onion gravy, using the same pan, gently fry the onion in the oil until golden and add a pinch of sage.
  5. Dissolve the stock cubes in water as the packet directs and pour over the onions. Increase the heat until boiling.
  6. Mix the cornflour with a teaspoon of water and add the mixture to the gravy and stir.
  7. Once thickened, pour gravy over the patties and serve with seasonal greens.

Another favorite here. For both myself and my partner who isn't doing the program. I love that I rarely have to cook 2 separate meals to keep us both happy

We just had this for dinner and it was incredible!!! I used nashi pear instead of apple, and mixed herbs instead of sage on its own but flavour was still beautiful, served ours on a bed of red cabbage and green breans and with the gravy...yum! Whole family loved it, can't wait to cook it again.

I tried the chicken recipe (no chicken but veal and ham mince) - also ran out of eggs too. Anyway, it was delicious and I served it between two big grilled mushrooms (instead of burger buns) and salad. So yummy!

Made this for the first time tonight, and it is so good. Hubby loved it as did my 3 and 4.5yr old and even my 10mth old! Plates were clean at the end of dinner which doesn't happen very often, will definitely be making this again!

We're so pleased that so many of you have been enjoying this new Pork and Apple Rissoles recipe. Thank you for the lovely feedback. Some of us at Celebrity Slim Head Office have been experimenting with some other variations of Rissoles this week - we also recommend you give this yummy combination of ingredients a try: chicken mince, 1 egg, 1 grated carrot, 1-2 stalks grated celery, 1 small onion finely chopped, 1-2 generous handfuls of chopped coriander (leaves and/or stalks), salt and pepper. We think it's delicious! We'd love to hear what any of you think if you give these Chicken Rissoles a try.

We had this over the weekend with vegies, Both my children and my husband loved it. Will definitely be making this again.

Had this over the weekend - was serving with salad so instead of making gravy, I added the 1/2 onion to the rissoles. Very yummy! Hubby was happy too - makes the program so easy if everyone can eat the same food at dinnertime!

We had this for dinner last night. OMG Soooooo good!!! I think we have a new family fav!!! We had this with salad and I could barely finish it all. It has already gone into my magic book of delicious food :)

Loved this! It was really easy to make and the rissoles tasted delicious. I didn't make the gravy, only because I'm not big on sauces and also because I was serving this with some yummy leftover salsa I had made the night before (corn, tomato, celery, little bit of onion, capsicum, coriander, salt, pepper and a squeeze of lime - yum!). The pork and apple rissoles went really well with my salsa.

I made this tonight and it was delicious. Both hubby and i would happily have this again. Will be keeping this recipe for sure.
