  1. Combine all the ingredients for either the pork or the beef burgers and season well. Form into 4 burgers with dampened hands. Cook on the barbecue for around 10 minutes a side or brown on a griddle pan then transfer to a baking sheet and bake in a hot oven (200 C, 180 C fan, 400 F, gas 6) for 15 minutes.
