Not your typical burger....this one is served in a pita stuffed with pineapple, fresh cabbage and onion slaw, and topped with a sweet teriyaki barbecue sauce.
6 Grilled sirloin burger patties
6 whole wheat pitas, split
6 pineapple slices, canned, reserve juice
3 cups shredded cabbage
1 cup onion, sliced
4 TBS cider vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp black pepper, to taste
6 tsp soy sauce
Bottled teriyaki barbecue sauce, or make your own:
1/4 cup reserved pineapple juice
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tsp sugar
splash of soy sauce, to taste
dash of tobasco or other hot pepper sauce
Grill or broil 6 burgers, topping each with a tsp of soy sauce and a tablespoon or so of pineapple sauce while grilling.
if you're making your own barbecue sauce, put it together while the burgers cook: Combine ketchup, pineapple juiice, 1 tsp sugar, splash of soy sauce and dash of hot pepper sauce. Mix well.
Assemble burgers: Cut burger in half, and put one half in each pita half. Add a half of a pineapple slice to each burger half, and stuff the remaining space in the pocket with 1/2 cup or so of slaw--or as much as will fit. Drizzle barbecue sauce over each half, and serve.
Makes12 half or 6 whole burgers. Half is plenty for most people, as it's very filling.
