Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine mayonnaise, mustard, and honey in a small bowl; cover and chill.

  • Combine pork, ground pepper, paprika, garlic powder, cumin, and salt in a medium bowl. Shape into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.

  • For a charcoal grill, place patties on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 10 to 12 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into side of each patty registers 160 degrees F, turning patties once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on the grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

  • To assemble, spread reserved honey-mustard mixture on cut sides of bun tops. Place lettuce leaves, grilled burgers, and roasted red peppers on bun bottoms. Add bun tops, spread sides down.


Ingredient Note: Instead of purchasing pre-ground pork which can be high in fat, buy a whole piece of lean pork loin and grind it in a food processor.
