It’s another month and another Secret Recipe to reveal via The Secret Recipe Club.

The month of June brings a season of barbequing which means lots and lots of grilled goodies. So I thought it only perfect to make Heather’s Pineapple Beef Burgers with Spicy Sriracha Mayo. If only I had remembered to pick up the Sriracha-doh! But I improvised and processed a blend of garlic chili paste, chili paste, tomato paste, vinegar and water and what would you know-the taste was very similar if not almost spot on. So I went with that. And I feel this gave our burgers just the right flavors to still be able to call this a Sriracha burger.

Now on to the burger. This burger starts with a juicy beef patty with bits of onion scattered inside with tasty Worcestershire sauce and a kick of garlic. It is topped with creamy avocado, sweet pineapple and a spicy zing of sriracha mayo. All jammed inside of a soft burger bun. Yea, my mouth watered too.

Ingredients:
1 pound ground beef
1 egg
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
pinch of sea salt and pepper
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
4 pineapple rings
1/3 cup mayo
3 tbsp sriracha
4 whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted
toppings: avocado, grilled onion, spinach, sliced tomato

Directions:
First heat your stovetop or outdoor grill to a medium heat.
In a large bowl mix together the ground beef, egg, panko bread crumbs, green onion, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and salt and pepper. Mix well, but lightly. I ran out of green onions, so I used red. And I used gluten free panko crumbs for my Jesse bear. 😉

Shape into 4 equal sized patties and lay on the grill to cook.

In a small bowl, combine the mayo and sriracha and set aside.

Slice any burgers toppings you’d like, such as avocado, onions or tomatoes. And maybe some shredded cabbage or fresh baby spinach.

Flip the hamburgers carefully after about 4 minutes and cook through on the other side about 4 minutes more, or until desired doneness.

Toast the burger buns if desired on the opposite side of the grill.

Assemble the burgers, dividing the sriracha mayo, mozzarella cheese and other toppings equally among all four burgers.

I have to say this burger was delicious! Mouth watering and reminiscent of a tropical spicy meatloaf burger. I will make this again! And you may need some milk for this one. 😉
