Hawaiian Hamburgers Recipe

Hola Amigos..or should I say Aloha! Now that grill master "Big Boy" is officially out of school , he is going to be doing a lot of grilling and BBQ-ing around the house. Today I'm sharing another one of his creations, this time with a little island twist. The key to achieve this Hawaiian influence is in the grilled pineapple and the pineapple sauce to complement it. Here is the recipe!

Hawaiian Hamburgers
1 1/2 Pound Ground Beef ( I like 85/15)
1TBSP Bean Sauce
1TBSP Soy Sauce
1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 Tsp Curry Powder
1/2 Tsp Montreal Steak Seasoning
1/2 Tsp White Pepper
1/4 tsp Onion Powder
2TBSP chicken broth or water.
6-8 Strips Bacon
6-8 Buns
Mix all the ingredients above and make your hamburger patties.
Note: These measurements are approximate and reflect the taste of my family, you are welcome to use less or more of any and it  would not affect the outcome of your burger it will only taste the way you like it seasoned.
Wrap each hamburger with a strip of bacon.
Grilled them to taste.

Grilled Pineapples
6-8 Pineapple Slices
1 TBSP Honey
1 TBSP Lemon Juice
a Pinch of Tumeric
Put the pineapples in a zip lock bag with the above ingredients and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Oil the surface of your grill and place the pineapples until they get the grill marks, like 2-3 minutes on each side depending on the temp of your grill.

Hawaiian"Aloha" Sauce
3/4 Cup Pineapple Juice or Orange
2 TBSP Soy Sauce
1 Tsp Brown Sugar
1 Clove Garlic peeled and crushed
1/4 Tsp Black Pepper
1/2 dried Thyme
1 Tsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 TBSP pineapple juice.
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook 8-10 minutes until reduced. Add the cornstarch dissolved  in the pineapple juice and cook until the sauce thickens. 

Now to assemble your burgers! Yeah, bun, burger, sauce and grilled pineapple, bun and EAT!!!

All the steps above, although seems like a lot of work, is well worth it! This burgers are really, really good! And I'm not just saying this. Little one fought to get a big one just for him and ate it all!

The Sauce goes like "butter" and you can use it on anything, from shrimp to chicken!

If you want to take your friends to an exotic paradise without packing your bags, this is the next best thing!

Thank You for visiting the Blog, wishing all fathers an awesome day tomorrow! Lots of health, love and blessings to all!
Always keep in mind my friends, that everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love!

Honi Honi.

  1. It's going to be a great Father's Day celebration over at your place, I can already tell! :)

  2. I've been hungry for a yummy burger! These look fabulous! =)

  3. You had me at bacon and grilled pineapple, yum :) These look like a great summer grilling idea!

  4. Hi Lizy, I'm not a huge pineapple fan so probably wouldn't try this. But I did make your Bar-B-Q chuck roast last night on the gas grill. It was delicious. I usually don't make roasts as there are only two of us, but we will use the remainder for sandwiches. I would definitely do this again, especially if we have friends over. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Fondly, Janet

    1. Oh awesome Janet! I hope it turned out good for you! And you are right,we also made a few sandwiches with the leftovers! I'm glad you liked it! yeayyy!!! Big hug to you and the kitties!

    2. Hugs back from all of us. I still want to make the chocolate cake. It makes my mouth water just to look at the photos. JB

  8. This looks super tasty! I think I have the only man in the world that isn't crazy about grilling. A couple months ago I told him you can grill fruit and he seemed interested, though, so maybe we'll be able to get a grill when he gets home from deployment!
