the Ingredients

20151023095349 Wtg Pork 2


  • 2 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
  • ½ cup coarsely grated tart green apple
  • ½ cup coarsely grated carrot
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon celery seed
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt


  • 1½ pound ground pork
  • ⅓ cup applesauce
  • 1½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns, split

Special Equipment

  • box grater with holes


  • 01 In a large bowl mix the slaw ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to assemble the burgers.
  • 02 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).
  • 03 Mix the patty ingredients, and then gently form four patties of equal size, each about ¾ inch thick. With your thumb or the back of a spoon, make a shallow indentation about 1 inch wide in the center of the patties to prevent them from forming a dome as they cook.
  • 04 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the patties over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until cooked to medium doneness (160°F), 12 to 15 minutes, turning once when the patties release easily from the cooking grate without sticking. During the last minute of grilling time, toast the buns, cut side down, over direct heat. Place the burgers on the buns and top with the slaw. Serve warm.
