These burgers and the accompanying sauce both have incredible flavor, and this recipe happens to be one of my husband's favorites. I always pan-fry them, though, and have never tried cooking them on the grill because they are pretty wet. I also usually make the patties earlier in the day, put them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, cover and refrigerate until ready to cook, and this helps them stay together. -adapted from Bon Appetit
