Grilled Pineapple Hawaiian Burgers

  • Author: Joanie Simon

  • Yield: 6 1x


An all-beef burger accented with grilled pineapple and sweet onions.


  • 2 lb ground beef
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 pineapple cored and sliced into ¼ in thick slices
  • 1 sweet onion, sliced into ¼ in thick rings
  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup Black bean Garlic Sauce
  • 6 slices swiss cheese
  • 6 leaves of butter or green leaf lettuce
  • ½ cup mayo
  • 6 large hamburger buns


  1. Preheat the grill to medium high heat.
  2. Evenly divide the beef into 6 patties, form and flatten and sprinkle evenly with garlic salt.
  3. Take the beef patties, pineapple, onion and oil to the grill.
  4. Brush all with a bit of oil to prevent sticking, then grill until desired doneness. Pineapple and onion should have good char marks and be slightly soft.
  5. Remove all from the grill as they’re done and place slices of swiss cheese on the beef patties as they come off the grill.
  6. Assemble your burger by placing a leaf of lettuce on the bottom bun, then the burger, pineapple, and onion. Liberally spread mayo and a schmear of black bean sauce on the top bun and place it on top of the burger. *heads up that the black bean sauce is super potent stuff, so go easy on it.
  7. Serve warm.
