Pineapple Teriyaki Burgers Recipes

Ingredients

  • cooking spray
  • 2 slices canned pineapple, drained
  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1/2 (8 ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 (1 inch) piece fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Asian seasoning blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded lettuce, divided
  • 2 hamburger buns, split

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Spray a broiling rack with cooking spray.
  2. Place pineapple slices on a baking sheet and broil just until lightly browned, about 1 minute per side. Set the pineapple slices aside.
  3. Thoroughly mix ground beef, bread crumbs, water chestnuts, teriyaki sauce, egg, minced ginger, Asian seasoning blend, onion powder, and garlic powder in a bowl; divide in half and form 2 large patties. Place the patties onto the prepared broiling rack.
  4. Broil patties until burgers are browned and no longer pink inside, 5 to 8 minutes per side. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the middle of a burger should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
  5. Place half the lettuce onto the bottom half of each bun; top with a burger and a slice of pineapple. Place bun tops on sandwiches and serve.
