1 Sauce: Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat, add the onion, garlic and chillies and cook until the onion is soft. Add the remaining sauce ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.

2 Burger: Meanwhile, heat a separate large frying pan over medium heat until very hot. Season the pork fillet with salt and pepper and rub with the oil. Cook the fillet in the hot pan, turning every 2 minutes, for 10 minutes or until cooked through but still moist. Allow the meat to rest then slice.
