Air Fryer Thai Pork Sliders

This week I started a pantry cleanse.  A pantry cleanse is where I plan all my meals  out of the ingredients I have already have in my dry goods pantry, my freezer and fridge.  Once I use up an ingredient,  I can’t buy anymore until the cleanse is over. All I am allowed to buy is milk, eggs and fresh fruit and vegetables.  The length of a pantry cleanse is anywhere from a week to 3 weeks.

I like doing pantry cleanses every so often because it helps prevent  waste by using up the little bits of stuff that gets pushed to the back of the pantry and forgotten about.   It also helps me become more creative with what I have as I use up ingredients. 

Today’s ingredient I am trying to use use is Thai red curry paste.

Thai Style Pork Sliders

From The Essential Air Fryer Cookbook

1 lb ground pork

1/2 cup very thinly sliced green onion

2 TBS minced fresh ginger

11/2 TBS fish sauce

1TBS Thai curry paste

1 TBS brown sugar

1tsp ground black pepper

Slider buns

Preheat air fryer to 375 degrees.

Mix the pork, scallions, ginger, fish sauce, curry paste, brown sugar, and black pepper. Mix it gently, just until,the spices are combined, or the pork will get tough.

Using about 1/3 cup of the meat mixture for each, form 6 patties, about the same size and thickness. Place patties in the air fryer basket. If you have a small capacity air fryer, you may need to work in batches. Cook 14 minutes, or until the patties are golden brown and caramelized. No need to flip these patties.
