This recipe is a keeper. I love pork burgers and I think they hold their form much better than burgers made with ground beef. I grilled these instead of pan frying and they held together perfectly. I made a couple small changes like using a granny smith apple instead of a red one and adding beer when caramelizing the onions. I served with a bulgur salad. I can't wait to try some of your other pork burger recipes.
