Why I Love This Recipe

I wanted to use some of the fresh sage in my garden, so I made this with some leftover ground turkey. Results were tasty if a bit dry. I bet its wonderful with fatty pork!!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 lbs pork shoulder, lean and fat, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/4 C cold water
2 T pure maple syrup
1 1/2 t salt
1 1/2 t minced fresh sage
1 t freshly ground pepper
1 t hot sauce
1/2 t grated nutmeg


Place the cubed pork on a plate and freeze 10 minutes to firm it up.

Tranfer pork to bowl of a food processor, in batches if necessary; pulse until pork is coarsely chopped in pea sized pieces.

Transfer pork to a large bowl and add remaining ingredients. Using hands, combine ingredients until well blended. Refrigerate until needed, up to 3 days.

When ready to cook, shape into 12-16 equal sized patties about 1/2 inch thick. Eat a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Cook patties, in batches if necessary, until well browned, about 5 minutes; turn. Cook 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
