Serves: 4 burgers
To prevent from drying out, do not press down on the burger while grilling.
  • 4 (6 ounce) hamburger patties
  • 4 hamburger buns, white or whole wheat
  • 8 pineapple rings
  • 4 slices swiss cheese
  • Teriyaki Beer Glaze
  • Mayonnaise
  • Green lettuce leaves
  • Red onion slices
  • Tomato slices
  1. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium high heat and coat lightly with oil. Brush pineapples rings with teriyaki glaze; grill until warmed through and slightly caramelized with nice grill marks, about 5 minutes per side; transfer to a plate and set aside.
  2. Brush the hamburger patties with teriyaki glaze. Grill 2 to 3 minutes, or until the juices just begin to pool on the top of the patty. Flip and continue to cook, basting with additional glaze, as desired, until medium. Top with a slice of swiss cheese and remove from grill once cheese begins to melt.
  3. Place hamburger buns on the grill, cut side down, until slightly toasted.
  4. To assemble the burger, coat the bottom half of the toasted bun with a layer of good quality mayonnaise; this will act as a barrier to prevent the bun from becoming soggy. Top the bottom bun with lettuce and tomato, followed by the hamburger patty. Place the pineapple rings and onion slices on top then cap with the top bun. Serve with additional teriyaki glaze.
