2 lbs ground meat (I used turkey)
1/2 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup chopped scallions
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce/gluten free tamari
~1 tsp sriracha (the more the spicier)
8 Tablespoons teriyaki sauce (store bought, gluten free or homemade)
8 slices fresh pineapple
Gently combine the ground meat with grated carrots, scallions, ginger, soy sauce/tamari and sriracha, making sure not to overwork or the meat will get tough. Form into equal sized patties, 1/4 pounders will make 8 burgers.
If you are making your teriyaki sauce you will want to start it now, otherwise continue.
Heat the grill and cook patties on high heat for about 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until done to your preference. While the burgers are cooking, grill the sliced pineapple for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. If adding cheese, place slices on top of burgers until just starting to melt.
To serve, place lettuce on the bottom of each bun. Top with the cooked burger and 1 tbsp of teriyaki sauce, then with grilled pineapple. Enjoy!
