These sweet-and-spicy glazed pork burgers are just as easy to make as plain beef burgers, but so much more flavorful.

  1. 1 1/2 pounds ground pork
  2. 1 1/2 pounds sweet and hot Italian sausage, casings removed
  3. 1/4 cup honey
  4. 3 tablespoons Sriracha
  5. 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  6. 1/4 cup whole-grain mustard
  7. 8 burger buns, split and toasted
  8. Mayonnaise, coleslaw and pickles
  1. In a bowl, combine the ground pork with the sausage meat and form into eight 4-inch patties about 3/4 inch thick.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the honey, Sriracha and both mustards and bring to a boil. Simmer until a slightly glossy sauce forms, 3 minutes; reserve half in a bowl for serving.
  3. Light a grill and oil the grates. Grill the burgers over moderately high heat for 5 minutes, turning once, until lightly charred and barely cooked through; brush with the sauce and grill, turning and brushing, until cooked through and glazed, about 5 minutes longer.
  4. Spread the bottom buns with mayonnaise and top with the burgers. Spoon a little of the reserved sauce on top, followed by coleslaw and pickles. Close the burgers and serve.
Make Ahead
