  • 1 pound ground pork, preferably pork shoulder or another fatty cut
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons chopped lemon grass
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chilled cooked white rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne or other red chile powder
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped, seeded plum tomatoes
  • 1/4 About 1/4 cup peanut oil and more for oiling the plate
  • Cilantro sprigs, for garnish



Step 1

Step 1 In a large bowl, combine the pork and turmeric and set aside.

Step 2 In a mortar or food processor, combine the lemon grass, garlic, shallots, ginger and salt. Process or pound to a coarse paste. Add the rice, chile powder and tomatoes and process again.

Step 3 Lightly brush a plate with oil. Add the aromatic paste to the meat and use your hands to knead together thoroughly. Shape the mixture into balls about 1 inch in diameter, then flatten each gently into a small, thick patty. Set aside on the oiled plate.

Step 4 Heat the oil in a wide skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliders and cook for about 3 minutes, until browned. Turn over the sliders and keep cooking; if they start to release liquid, raise the heat to continue browning. Cook until just firm to the touch.

Step 5 Serve hot, garnished with cilantro sprigs.
