This Hawaiian Pork Burger is the burger you didn’t know you needed… until now!
Burgers are by far one of the best things to quickly grill up and enjoy out on the patio! 99% of the time, most people are using ground beef which is delicious in it’s own respect.
Now, I would never go as far to imply being tired of beef burgers, but sometimes it’s nice to mix it up. This Hawaiian Pork Burger is by far one of my favorite burgers of all time. Juicy, salty pork, combined with the sweet pineapple and spicy mayo is one bite you’ll never forget.
Be sure to give this easy recipe a try next time you fire up the grill!

The great thing about this burger is that it is packed with a ton of flavor, but it doesn’t require a ton of ingredients. The ingredients we are using provide such a wide variety of flavors, but bring such a great synergy to each and every bite.
Protein: 1 pound of freshly ground pork
Toppings: Slices of pineapple and red onion

Seasoning: BBQ Rub – I used Reaper Rub from Blazing Start BBQ to add extra sweet heat to every bite.
How to make a Hawaiian Pork Burger
Start by taking 1 pound of freshly ground pork and forming it into 1/3 pound patties. Season each patty with your favorite BBQ rub that tastes great on pork.
Next, slice up one red onion into 1/4 inch thick slices. Then cut the rind off of the pineapple, remove the core and cut it into 1/2 inch thick slices.Print

- Form the ground pork into 1/3 pound patties and season them with a salt, pepper, garlic blend.
