Pork-and-pineapple is one of those combos that will make your taste buds do the hula, glow with sunshine, and ride the wave to Flavor Beach. Naturally, we had to find a way to turn that into a burger. Ground pork’s savoriness is amped up further by garlic and soy, and then with a touch of honey that complements the sweetness of the warm pineapple relish spiked with slivers of onion.
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat toaster oven or oven to 400 degrees. Mince or grate garlic until you have 2 tsp. Chop cilantro. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Drain pineapple.
In a large bowl, mix together pork, cilantro, garlic, soy sauce, and honey. Shape into four ¾-inch-thick patties. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, tossing, until softened, 3-4 minutes. Toss pineapple into pan and cook until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside.
Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add patties to pan and cook until browned on bottom, 4-5 minutes. Flip, cover pan, and cook on other side until no longer pink in center, 3-4 minutes more.
Meanwhile, thinly slice cucumbers. Split buns in half and toast in toaster oven or oven until golden brown, 3-5 minutes. (TIP: Place the buns on a baking sheet if toasting them in the oven.) In another large bowl, toss lettuce, cucumbers, 2 tsp vinegar (we sent more), and a large drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread buns with mayonnaise, then fill with patties, relish, and a small amount of salad. Divide between plates and serve with remaining salad on the side.
