There’s no burger, like a Jo’burger (Go Lions!)

Red sport fans.resize

All South African rugby fans are hoping that the great performance by the Lions last week was just a precursor for a cracker of a game this weekend.

We asked Nina from My Easy Cooking to suggest a spicy… erm… stomach liner to match the fiery spirit of South African fans.

Jalepeño Burgers with Blue Cheese SauceJalepeno burger.resize

Makes four burgers


500g sirloin mince

5 Pepadew Jalapeño halves – finely chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

1 egg


Mix all the ingredients for the burgers together and shape into four even-sized patties. Heat a griddle pan and grill the patties to your liking.

Ingredients for the Blue Cheese sauce

250ml cream

100g Fairview Blue Tower


Pour the cream into a small pot and crumble the cheese into it. Bring to the boil and allow the cream to cook and reduce to a thicker consistency. Serve on burgers.

We hope the game tomorrow is as rewarding for the Lions (and their fans) as this delicious meal will be for your taste buds!
