Aussie Burger

Thom Hackett

Serves:  4




I dare say that you have never had a burger quite like this one.  It is very messy to eat so have napkins handy.  This is a spicy sweet tart burger.  You'll be amazed at the taste of this burger. Some Australians add grilled onions to the burger so make it your own.



cup ketchup

cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon Asian chile paste such as sambal oelek

1 lb ground beef chuck

4 kaiser rolls, split

4 pineapple rings

1 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided

4 large eggs

cup drained sliced pickled beets

Cooking Method

Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal (medium heat for gas).
Combine ketchup, mayonnaise, and chile paste.
Mix beef with 1 tsp salt and tsp pepper, then form into 4 (4-inch-diameter) patties.
Lightly toast rolls on grill.
Pat pineapple dry and brush with Tbsp oil.
Oil grill rack, then grill pineapple and burgers, covered only if using a gas grill, turning once, until pineapple is tender and caramelized and burgers are medium-rare, about 4 minutes total.
Heat remaining Tbsp oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot, then fry eggs.
Spread chile mayonnaise on rolls, then assemble burgers with pineapple, beets, eggs, lettuce, and tomato.
