    Chorizo Sausage Burgers

    Combine Spanish chorizo with your favourite pork sausages and turn them into flavoursome burgers, which are nicely countered by punchy rocket, sweet red pepper and a quick cheat's aioli.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • Cheat’s aioli
    • 1 garlic clove, crushed
    • 1 tbsp lemon juice
    • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
    • 2 chorizo sausages (about 220g)
    • 6 pork sausages
    • Olive oil, for brushing
    • 2 red peppers
    • 4 pitta breads
    • A handful rocket leaves


    1. Make the aioli by beating the garlic, lemon juice and olive oil into the mayonnaise, then set aside until the burgers are ready.
    2. Heat the barbecue or a cast-iron griddle pan. Skin the chorizo and finely chop the meat, then skin the pork sausages and combine the meat with the chorizo, mixing well with your hands. Form into 4 burgers. Brush them with olive oil and cook for 5 minutes on each side until cooked (the chorizo has a tendency to burn so keep an eye on it). Cut each red pepper vertically into 4 panels, then discard the seeds and core. Brush with olive oil and grill on both sides until well-marked.
    3. Brush the pitta breads with olive oil and grill on one side until marked. Top each pitta with two pieces of roasted red pepper, a chorizo burger, and some rocket leaves. Serve with the aioli.

    Argentina’s reds are often a great barbecue choice: they’re made for meat.
