5. Sun dry the meat patties under the sun for about 2 hours. Best done on a windy day. This is to reduce the moisture content of the minced pork. It also helps to give the pork the rose red colour when grilling.
This step is optional. You can go straight to cooking omitting this step.

6. Pre-heat the HCP to medium low heat. Place the minced pork together with the parchment paper into the pan. Lock the pan and cook for about 2 minutes. When the meat patties is cooked, use a tongs to help you flip them over to cook the other sides. When the meat patties are cooked, transfer them to a plate. As by end of the cooking, the sugar tends to turn black and bitter. To avoid the end product from becoming bitter, it is advisable to grill on a fresh piece of parchment paper.
Due to the high sugar content of the meat patties, the meat patties easily get charred. Observe the heat closely and flip the meat patties regularly.
Always cook on the parchment paper and avoid the syrup from flowing to the pan, if you want easy washing.
