500g pork mince

3 spring onions, finely chopped

½ bunch coriander, finely chopped

1 egg

1 long red chilli, diced (remove seeds for less heat)

1-inch knob ginger, minced

¼ cup hoisin sauce

2 tbsp fried shallots

1 tsp dried chilli flakes

For the glaze:

2 tbsp white vinegar

¼ cup soy sauce

2 tbsp hoisin sauce

1 tbsp coconut sugar

1 tbsp minced ginger

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

To a bowl, add the pork mince, coriander, bread crumbs, soy, hoisin sauce, sesame seeds, chilli flakes, shallots and spring onion. Crack in the egg and add the chilli, ginger and garlic and stir to combine (with hands is best).
