I'm a big fan of pineapple on teriyaki burgers or chicken, but instead of the old grilled pineapple ring topping a burger, this recipe blends pineapple chunks and sweet Maui onion into a delicious relish. So follow this great recipe and you can have a little piece of Hawaii at your next tailgating party!
1 pound ground beef
3 tablespoons prepared teriyaki sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper
4 buttered, grilled onion rolls
Maui Onion and Pineapple Relish
1 cup diced Maui onion (or substitute red onion)
1 cup finely chopped pineapple
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
Note:Makes 4 serings
Add ground beef into a bowl and mix in teriyaki sauce, salt and peppers until throughout. Form 4 patties and place in an airtight container for transport to the tailgate site.
To make Maui Onion and Pineapple Relish: Add ingredients into a medium saucepan and stir to combine. Cook over medium-low heat for about 15 - 20 minutes until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and cool completely. Transfer into an airtight container.
Grill burgers on a lightly oiled rack over medium-high heat, 5 minutes on each side for medium burgers. Top with Maui Onion and Pineapple Relish and serve on hamburger buns.
