  • Preheat your barbecue to 300º C (575º F).
  • Mix the pork with the seasonings and refrigerate until the barbecue comes to temperature. Meanwhile, slice the capsicums into strips and fry slowly in a little extra virgin olive oil with a pinch of salt.
  • Prepare the coleslaw by finely slicing the cabbage and mixing with the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate.
  • Separate the meat into six equal portions and form into oval patties. When the barbecue comes to temperature, grill the patties for about 4 minutes on either side or until you obtain your desired doneness. Be sure to grill the zucchini and the bread while the patties are cooking.

Tip: Serve with the topping and strained coleslaw accompanied by hot chips or potato chips.
