Maple Mustard Pork Burgers
2 lb. ground pork (1kg)
2 x large French shallots chopped, fine dice
2 x cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt (5ml)
1 tsp ground black pepper (5ml)
3 tbsp pure maple syrup (45ml)
2 tbsp spicy grainy mustard (30ml)
1 tbsp of cider vinegar (15ml)
1 tsp of liquid honey (5ml)
1/2 tsp of dry mustard (2ml)
1 tsp orange zest chopped fine (5ml)
6 x large onion buns, sliced.

In a medium size bowl combine the ground pork, chopped shallots, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Form the mixture into 6 patties of equal size about 1 inch thick (2.5cm). Place patties on to a tray and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator until ready to grill.

In a medium size bowl whisk together all glaze ingredients. Preheat barbeque grill to 375°F/190°C or medium high heat. Oil the grill.

Brush the pork burgers with prepared glaze. Place pork patties on grill for 7-8 minutes basting every 2 minutes or until dark golden brown and slightly crisp on exterior.

Flip the burgers and continue to cook for another 7 minutes basting every 2 minutes. Remove burgers from grill and place on tray. Place sliced buns on the bun rack for 1 minute.
