INGREDIENTS

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • Step1
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons McCormick® Grill Mates® Sweet & Smoky Rub, plus more for sprinkling
  • 4 fresh pineapple rings
  • 4 sweet Hawaiian-style or potato hamburger rolls

INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 Mix pork, bell pepper, onion and 2 tablespoons of the Rub in medium bowl until well blended. Shape into 4 patties. Refrigerate 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Sprinkle burger patties lightly on both sides with additional Rub.
  • 2 Grill burgers over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes per side or until cooked through (internal temperature should reach 160ºF). Meanwhile, sprinkle pineapple rings lightly on both sides with Rub. Grill alongside pork 3 to 5 minutes, turning occasionally, until lightly charred. Toast rolls on grill, cut-side down, about 30 seconds.
  • 3 Serve burgers on rolls with grilled pineapple and desired toppings and condiments.

    Test Kitchen Tips:
    •Great with toppings such as lettuce, sliced tomatoes, red onion, sliced avocado and white Cheddar cheese.
    •For Hawaiian Burger Sliders, shape pork mixture into 8 patties. Grill over medium heat about 3 minutes per side or until cooked through (internal temperature of 160°F).
    •Substitute ground beef or turkey in place of the pork. Prepare as directed, grilling until cooked through (internal temperature should reach 165°F for turkey).
