Aloha Summer Burgers ♥

Here is a perfect recipe using my favorite organic beef product from American Farmers Network. " I recently ordered the organic beef special order from American Farmer's Network for $240.  The beef from AFN is 100% Grass-Fed and is Certified Organic." 

All of their organic beef is 100% grass fed. It’s one of the selective few 100% grass fed certified organic programs in the country with beef raised exclusively in the USA. The flavor in their beef comes from the clean fresh grasses and plants the cattle graze on, and from the humane and stress-free environment provided by our master ranchers.

For a limited time, we offer FREE SHIPPING on all orders exceeding $200. 

Here is my recipe for Aloha Summer Burgers! 

Ingredients  ♥

For the Pineapple 

1 medium pineapple, sliced into rounds, rhine + core removed
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup coconut rum
2 teaspoons spicy curry powder
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Teriyaki Sauce Recipe 

1/4 cup cold water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sweet rice wine
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 clove garlic, minced or grated
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated

The burgers..

2 pounds organic ground beef
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons pineapple juice
pinch of cayenne pepper
pinch of pepper
6 slices pepper jack or swiss cheese ( optional) 
8-12 slices fried bacon
1 avocado, sliced ( optional) 
2 jalapeños, sliced
6 burger buns

Directions ♥

Add the pineapple rounds to a ziplock bag. Now add the brown sugar, coconut rum, spicy curry powder, ginger, chili powder, cayenne and cinnamon. Seal the bag and shake to coat. Place in the fridge for 1 hour or up to 12 hours. Meanwhile work on the rest of the meal.
Island Teriyaki Sauce
Combine the cold water and cornstarch in a small bowl, whisking until smooth.
In a medium sauce pot combine the pineapple juice, soy sauce, sweet rice wine, brown sugar, garlic and ginger. Bring to a boil over medium heat, add the cornstarch mixture and bring the sauce back a boil. Boil 1 minute, then reduce the heat and simmer 5 minutes or until thickened slightly. The longer you let it cook, the thicker it will become.
Preheat the grill to medium high heat.
In a bowl combine the beef , soy sauce, pineapple juice, pinch of cayenne and a pinch of pepper. Mix until just combined and then divide the meat into 6 equal patties.
Grill the burgers for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium rare or longer if you prefer. During the last minute of cooking add the cheese. At the same time grill the pineapple for 4-5 minutes per side or until caramelized.
To Assemble
Place a burger on the bottom buns. Top with a pineapple slice and drizzle on the island teriyaki sauce. Add the avocado slices, bacon and jalapeños. Add the top bun and enjoy!
