The story of how I discovered these delicious Pork, Apple and Caramelised Onion Rissoles is quite funny.

It all started from a cooking fail! I wanted to make sausages but failed! BUT the result tasted so delicious that I decided to cook the recipe the next day and recreate it into rissoles.

The pork, apple and caramelised onion go so well together. Served with mashed potatoes, greens and gravy makes it a match made in heaven!
