Bring vinegar to a boil in 2-quart saucepan. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 9 to 10 minutes or until reduced to 1/3 cup. Set aside. Meanwhile, lightly shape ground steakburger into eight 1/2-inch thick patties. Brush polenta slices with oil. Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals.
