I love pulled pork and had my doubts about a burger recipe with claims to compare. I was pleasantly surprised that this burger definitely does resemble the taste of our southern pulled pork and is actually a quite delicious & quick way to serve ground pork. I was impressed with the inventiveness of this recipe and how the bland taste of the ground pork was elevated by simply adding bits of smoky bacon and smearing with a rub. Obviously this will never be a substitute for real pulled pork, but in a pinch, when the mood strikes but lack of time persists, this succulent burger will certainly fit the bill! I have made these twice now, once using my George Forman Grill with excellent results. Steven Raichlen has done it again with this recipe! Other then a few personal changes, this is his recipe from Burgers. Although Pale Ales are the usual choice for BBQ dishes, I tend to lean more towards the Brown Ales with pulled pork (or versions of it); try it with an Abita Turbo Dog or Sam Smith’s Nut Brown. Make Ahead: The honey-mustard sauce can be made a day ahead of time and refrigerated, just reheat on low before serving.
