Stir through the light brown soft sugar, cider vinegar and wholegrain mustard. Heat the grill to medium-high. Put the beef burgers on a baking sheet and grill on each side for 5-8 mins or until cooked through. For the last minute, top the burgers with the gruyère and grill until bubbling and melted.
