Protein Bowl -Perfect Sunday Brunch

What more can I say. Perfect for brunch on the weekend after a morning at the gym. Turkey Burger, Eggs & Pulled Pork are all from Kerrgians in Malahide. The pulled pork is by RibWorld and comes vacuum packed, roughly 300g in weight and is quite lean for pork which is usually quite fatty. The quantities/ portion size may vary depending on your needs.

Hope you enjoy.

 

Ingredients

Spinach & Mixed leaves

Cherry Tomatoes

Peppers

Spring Onions

Carrots

Lemon Juice

Turkey Burger

Pulled Pork

Eggs

Chilli Powder

Mini Tortillas (Optional)

Cheese of any variety – (Optional) Parmesan, Cottage Cheese or Feta are always a good choice.

Cooking

First things first, the pork will take approx 30 minutes to cook so get that into the oven asap!

Prepare the vegetables – for the carrots, if you have a mandolin then slice them into strips. If this is too much hassle then I suggest buying the curly carrots in either Aldi or Tesco. Moving on, slice everything up either chunky or thin whatever your preference may be. Put the veg into a bowl with some (1/2 tspoon) of chilli powder, salt & pepper and the juice of one lemon. Give it a good mix, add in the leaves and put aside for now.

Boil water in small pan/pot.

Cook the Turkey Burger – under the grill, on a pan, George Foreman whichever suits.

If you’re having tortillas I sprinkle them with chilli powder and usually just toast them on a dry pan or on the George Foreman.

Check on the pork, when it is ready take it, drain the liquid, throw away the packet out and pull it apart gently with two forks. Pour over the sachet of BBQ sauce, mix and back into the over for 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile turn the boiling water down to a simmer. Crack the egg into a cup because it makes it easier to pour into the pan. (cracking the egg directly into the pan takes a bit of practice) Let this poach until the pork is ready to come back out.

By now if the Burger is ready you can slice it up and begin to put the salad into a bowl, followed by the Pulled Pork and the poached Egg along with any other options you choose.

Brunch on the weekend doesn’t come any easier than this and perfect if you have to cook for more than one or two as there is plenty of Pulled Pork to go around.

Happy Cooking

Shane.
