1To make the biscuits, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
2In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda, pulsing a few times to mix. Add the butter and pulse until it’s the size of small peas. Pour in the milk, pulsing, until incorporated. Pulse 5 more times, then transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface.
3Knead the dough 4 or 5 times, sprinkling with flour as needed. Roll the dough out to 1-inch thick, then use a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter to make 8 biscuits, rekneading and rerolling the scraps as necessary. Arrange the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet and bake until lightly browned, 12 to 14 minutes.
4Meanwhile, make the gravy: In a large bowl, combine the pork, brown sugar, maple seasoning (if using), salt, black pepper, sage, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, nutmeg and cayenne, stirring to thoroughly combine. Set aside.
5In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add the pork mixture and cook, breaking it up with a spoon or spatula, until no longer pink, 5 to 6 minutes. Sprinkle in the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the milk, increase the heat to high, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring to smooth any lumps, until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add more flour as needed to achieve desired consistency. Remove from the heat and stir in the maple syrup. Add more maple syrup, salt and black pepper to taste.
6Split the biscuits and arrange on plates. Spoon the gravy on top and serve.
