Serves: 4 burgers
Ingredients
  • 8-10 slices of prosciutto
  • 8 pineapple rings
  • 4 soft burger buns
BURGER PATTY
  • 4 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro (or parsley), chopped
  • 3 garlic clove, finely diced
  • 1 Tbsp red curry paste (optional)
  • 1-1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • ¼ tsp pepper
BURGER SLAW
  • ½ head of iceberg lettuce, julienned
  • 2 Tbsp mayo
  • 2 tsp sriracha sauce (optional)
  • 2 tsp black sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Make Burger Slaw by mixing all ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together soy and hoisin sauces. In a medium size bowl mix all the burger ingredients with half of the soy sauce mixture (set aside the other half for later). Form into 4 patties.
  3. In a sauté pan over medium heat, toast prosciutto lightly on both sides 1-2 minutes. Remove to paper towel and set aside.
  4. Preheat grill to medium-high. Oil grill plates. Grill pineapple slices 1 minute per side and set aside.
  5. Place pork patties on well oiled grill and cook in closed barbecue for 5 to 7 minutes per side, testing doneness with a digital rapid-read thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each patty – burgers are completely cooked when thermometer reads 160°F (71°C).
To assemble burgers: Place a scoop of Burger Slaw on each bun bottom. Place cooked patty on top of slaw and slather with remaining soy sauce mixture. Top with grilled pineapple rings and toasted prosciutto.
