Hawaiian Beef Sliders Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 18 miniature whole wheat buns
  • Baby spinach leaves
  • 3 center-cut bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • Sliced jalapeno peppers, optional

Directions

  • Drain pineapple, reserving juice and 1-1/2 cups pineapple (save remaining pineapple for another use). In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup reserved crushed pineapple, pepper and salt. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 18 patties; place in two 11-in. X 7-in. Dishes.
  • In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, ketchup, vinegar, garlic, pepper flakes and reserved pineapple juice. Pour half of marinade into each dish; cover and refrigerate for 1 hour, turning once.
  • Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
  • Grill patties, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. From the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear.
  • Grill buns, uncovered, for 1-2 minutes or until toasted. Serve burgers on buns with spinach, remaining pineapple, bacon and jalapeno peppers if desired. Yield: 6 servings.

    Editor's Note: If miniature whole wheat buns are not available in your area, you can also use whole wheat hot dog buns cut into thirds.
