Hawaiian Burger

A delicious burger with tang and heft.


1.5 lbs. ground beef
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tbsp. Steak Seasoning
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. Hungarian paprika
1 package Garlic and Herb Cheese
1 orange
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp. salt
1 grind of pepper
1 red onion
Vegetable oil for grill
6 round pineapple slices
6 slices Canadian bacon
6 soft Kaiser rolls


In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, steak seasoning, soy sauce, and paprika by hand. Mix just until incorporated, but do not over-mix. Form into six patties. Push a small indentation into the center of each patty with your thumb – this will prevent the burgers from swelling too much as they cook. Remove herba dn garlic cheese from packaging and place in a bowl to come to room temperature. Add the zest of orange to the cheese, and then juice the orange into a small saucier. Place over high heat on a gas grills burner or directly on top of grill grating and reduce liquid by two thirds. Cool, and add to the cheese. Also add the cilantro, salt and pepper. Mix together with a spoon until well blended. Slice onion into 1/4-inch thick slices and pierce with toothpicks for grilling. Prepare grill by wiping down rack with vegetable oil on a towel. Turn grill to high heat. Place burger patties on grill, indention side up, and cook for 3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 3 minutes. The burgers should be medium to medium rare. Remove burgers and allow to rest. While they rest, grill slices of onions, pineapple slices, and Canadian bacon on each side for 2 minutes. With your fingers, remove some of the excess bread inside the rolls (to make more room for the burger!) and toast the rolls on the grill. To assemble, place burger on bottom of bun, and top with a slice of pineapple, a few grilled onions, and a slice of Canadian bacon. Smear cheese mixture on top bun and cap burger.
