  1. Yum This was an easy recipe to make and it tastes good. I used my 'Grade B' Pure Maple Syrup when I made this. And since the pork is so lean the 1 tablespoon of olive oil worked perfect. I got the pan very hot before putting the patties into it. I did not add any extra oil to the pan. Then turned the heat to low and fried the stated amount of time. Don't fry any longer as you might make the maple syrup burn in the pan. I emailed your recipe to an avid hunter friend of ours. So I hope he tries making this with some of his venison. His wife said he had some venison laying out to be grounded and make jerky or something with it. Thank you for sharing this recipe I'll be making it again.
  2. For all you hunters---I made this using venison and it turns out very good.


I am a former retail management slave who is now a stay at home mom who absolutely loves her job. I have an eight year old, a two year old and a nine month old who all bring their own kind of joy to my life. My favorite thing in the world is to cook. We have a real, from scratch family dinner almost every night. Please don't be offended if I somewhat change a recipe in my review. I look at recipes sort of as guidelines, and alter them according to inspiration. I've received alot of helpful advice from reviews, that's why I share what I've done differently. With my little ones I'm pretty busy, but I LOVE this site and plan on being even more active as they get older.
