Grilled pineapple adds the perfect sweet counterpoint to these slightly salty burgers. We serve them bunless but you can turn them into sandwiches as well.
1 pound uncooked lean ground beef (with 7% fat)
1/4 cup scallion(s), sliced
3 Tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 Tablespoon ginger root, freshly grated
2 teaspoons minced garlic
4 slice pineapple, four 1/2-inch-thick rings
1/2 medium vidalia onion(s), or other sweet onion, cut into four 1/4-inch-thick rounds
4 sprays cooking spray
1/4 cup cilantro, fresh, chopped
Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high.
In a medium bowl, combine beef, scallions, teriyaki sauce, ginger and garlic until thoroughly mixed; form into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
Lightly coat burgers, pineapple and onion with cooking spray; place on grill. (Make sure to spray them away from heat.)
Grill pineapple, turning once until lightly charred, about 4 minutes; remove from grill.
Grill burgers and onions, turning once, until burgers are desired degree of doneness and onions are lightly charred and tender, about 7 to 9 minutes.
To serve, place 1 burger on each of 4 plates.
Top each with 1 slice of onion (separated into rings) and 1 slice of pineapple; sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of cilantro.
Yields 1 burger per serving.
