Pineapple Hawaiian Teriyaki Burgers
What a Hawaiian Night? Then try these burgers with Pineapple, Red Onions, Teriyaki Sauce and topped with miracle whip or mayonnaise and lettuce and Swiss Cheese, Mmmm Makes you want to do a Hula Dance.
Makes 4 Large burgers
what you Need:
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
2 lb lean ground beef
2 Tbsp pineapple juice(from the canned pineapple
2 Tbsp teriyaki sauce
4 slice red onion
4 slice swiss cheese
4 big sesame seed hamburger buns, buttered
4 slice pineapple(drain can. reserve juice)
I start with a grilled beef burger with a Hawaiian kick Sauce topped with a pineapple. swiss cheese and red onions.
How to Make them
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Mix pineapple juice and teriyaki sauce together. Set aside.
Mix beef, ginger, garlic, salt and soy sauce in a small bowl.
Divide into 4 patties and form into patties slightly larger than your bun.
Make a little whole in the center of the burger to prevent it from doming up in the center.
It will fill in as your burger cooks.
Grill until golden brown and slightly charred (about 3-5 minutes), turning once (cook for 3 minutes on the other side for medium).
Baste with pineapple teriyaki sauce as your burger cooks.
Try not to press down on your burger with a spatula. It will cause the juices to escape and will create a dry burger!
Grill pineapple slices until pineapple have golden brown grill marks on both sides.
Toast hamburger buns by placing on grill until grill marks form, this wont take long
Do not walk away during this process. Toast can turn to ash in the blink of an eye.
Spread mayo on bottom bun.
Top with lettuce, burger, Swiss cheese, grilled pineapple, red onion
Serve with my Fantastic French Fries
