the Ingredients

20151023095408 Row Pork 25


  • 1 pound ground pork (80 to 85% lean)
  • 3 scallions (white and light green parts only), finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon hot chili-garlic sauce, such as Sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 fresh pineapple slices, each ½ inch thick, core removed
  • Canola oil
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 4 leaves romaine lettuce
  • 4 teaspoons hoisin sauce


  • 01 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).
  • 02 Mix the patty ingredients, and then gently form four patties of equal size, each about ¾ inch thick. With your thumb or the back of a spoon, make a shallow indentation about 1 inch wide in the center of the patties to prevent them from forming a dome as they cook. Refrigerate the patties until ready to grill. Brush the pineapple slices with oil.
  • 03 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the patties over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until cooked to medium doneness (160°F), 10 to 15 minutes, turning once or twice. At the same time, grill the pineapple over direct medium heat until lightly charred and softened, about 8 minutes, turning once. Remove from the grill as they are done.
  • 04 Grill the buns, cut side down, over direct medium heat until lightly toasted, about 1 minute. Build the burgers on toasted buns with lettuce, a patty, hoisin sauce, and a pineapple slice. Serve warm.
