Prep time


Cooking time




  • 2 large Bramley apples, peeled, cored and chopped

  • 450g lean pork or turkey mince

  • 2 tbsp fresh sage, chopped

  • 1 tsp dried oregano

  • 1 tsp dried thyme

  • zest of half a lemon

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 4 tbsp olive oil

  • ½ tsp allspice or cinnamon

  • 100mls cold water

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Mix the pork or turkey mince with the sage, oregano, thyme, lemon zest and season well, then if necessary add a little of the beaten egg to bind together.
  • Mould the mixture into eight patties, about 7cm diameter.
  • Cook the patties in a non-stick frying pan with two tbsp of the olive oil, for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally. Be careful not to let the outsides overcook before the middles are cooked right the way through.
  • Place the other 2 tbsp of oil into a saucepan and heat gently.
  • Add the spice, water and the chopped apples, and cook for 15 minutes until the apples are soft and pulpy and you have a nice thick stew.
  • Finally, season with a little salt and pepper.
  • Serve the patties with the spicy apple stew as a dipping sauce.
