Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the potato into fries and place on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt, then toss to coat. Bake until tender, 20-25 minutes. In the last 5 minutes of cook time, sprinkle the shredded Cheddar cheese over the fries, then bake until melted and golden.
While the fries are baking, thinly slice the brown onion. Grate the beetroot (see ingredients). In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the onion until softened, 3-4 minutes. Add the beetroot, balsamic vinegar and brown sugar and cook until softened, 2-3 minutes. Add the water and cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced, 5-6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, then transfer to a bowl.
While the beetroot relish is cooking, thinly slice the pear. Finely chop the garlic. In a large bowl, combine the beef mince, garlic, fine breadcrumbs, garlic & herb seasoning, egg and the salt. Using damp hands, roll heaped spoonfuls of the beef mixture into meatballs, flatten to make 2cm-thick rissoles and transfer to a plate. You should get 3-4 rissoles per person.
Wipe out the frying pan and return to a mediumhigh heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the rissoles until browned all over and cooked through, 3-4 minutes each side.
In a medium bowl, combine the mixed salad leaves, pear and a drizzle of white wine vinegar and olive oil. Season to taste.
Divide the beef rissoles, cheesy fries and pear salad between plates. Top the rissoles with the beetroot relish. Serve with the BBQ mayo.
TIP: Refrigerate any leftover beetroot relish in an airtight container for up to a week!
