Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound ground beef, 80/20
  • 1 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 bottle teriyaki sauce, divided
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 can sliced pineapple, drained
  • 1-2 red onions, sliced into 1/2 inch thick rings
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 4 burger buns

Instructions

  1. Spray the grill with nonstick cooking spray and preheat to medium high.

  2. In a large bowl add ground beef, 2 Tablespoons teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, ground ginger and garlic salt. Mix until well combined being careful not to overwork the meat.

  3. Divide into 4 equal portions and form them into patties, making a small dimple in the middle of each.

  4. In a separate bowl, drizzle a couple tablespoons of teriyaki sauce onto the pineapple slices and onion slices. Gently toss to fully coat, being careful not to separate the onion rings.

  5. Grill the burgers for around 4 minutes per side, turning once until they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees (or more if you don't want any pink). Top with slices of mozzarella during the last minute or two of cooking to melt. 

  6. Grill the pineapple rings, onion slices and the buns for around 2 minutes per side to get a nice char without fully burning them.

  7. Remove everything form the heat and rest the burgers for 5 minutes. 

  8. Place the burgers on the bottom bun. 

  9. Top with onions and then pineapple. 

  10. Drizzle with a little more teriyaki sauce and top with top bun. Serve immediately.
