Grilled Teriyaki Burgers with Pineapple

I am still enjoying my grill and the whole family loved these grilled teriyaki burgers with grilled pineapple.  I got the recipe from one of my favorite bloggers, Recipe Girl.  The beef patties for these burgers are so FULL of flavor.  I love that you add bit of pineapple to the meat itself.

You really don’t need much on this burger because it is so flavorful. I did follow Lori’s suggestion of adding a little splash of steak sauce on my burger.  It adds a little tang to the sweetness of the burger.  Then I also added a little light mayo, spinach leaves, and a slice of havarti cheese.  Yum, yum!  Lori also didn’t say anything about grilling the pineapple, but I did.  I LOVE pineapple when it is grilled.

Grilled Teriyaki Burgers with Pineapple

1 1/4 pounds ground beef (no less than 15% fat- you want to keep them moist)
1 (28-ounce) can of pineapple slices (or slice it up fresh), divided (I used canned
¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
¼ cup chopped green onions
1 tsp grated peeled fresh ginger
¼ tsp black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced

1. In a large bowl, combine beef, 2 pineapple slices (chopped finely), soy sauce, onions, ginger, pepper and garlic. Divide beef mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a ½-inch-thick patty.

2. Preheat grill. Place burgers on grill rack; grill 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness and grill the remaining pineapple slices. Serve on toasted buns topped with 2 pineapple slices on each burger. Serve with desired condiments.

Servings: 4

Note: I topped my burger with a splash of steak sauce, light mayo, spinach leaves and havarti cheese.

  • I think the recipe name should be, “Grilled Soy Sauce Burgers with Pineapple”; but nevertheless, it sounds great!

  • My family had this dish tonight and my 2 and 3 year old girls LOVED them. My husband was a little skeptic about a pineapple burger but he was blown away by how good it was. I love your recipes. They are SO consistently delicious!

  • I made these today and they completely fell apart on the grill. Not sure what happened.

  • Wow, great job here. Awesome picture too! You should really consider submitting this to Recipe4Living’s Juiciest Burger Contest – – It looks delicious!

  • Mmmm, what kinda chips are those?!

  • We love teriyaki burgers at our house. I love using fresh pineapple. It really makes a better burger in my opinion. We also just started melting a slice of pepper jack cheese on the burger just before taking it off the grill. It is really good that way, too! I have never mixed the pineapple with the meat, though so I may have to try that soon!

  • I check out foodgawker almost every day–and it never fails that I end up on your blog! I love that your recipes are do-able for families. This one looks FABULOUS! I’ll have to give it a try soon!

  • Also, I used 93% lean ground turkey and they were not dry. Just don’t over cook them.

  • I made these the other night. However, I think they need a little kick. I think I may add chopped jalapeno next time.

    OR I would make a pineapple salsa to top the burgers (with jalapeno in it).

    I used red onion instead of green onion.

    They were a hit.
