Teriyaki Avocado Pineapple Burgers




If you haven't lived in California you may have never heard of the delight that is the Teriyaki Avocado Burger. It used to be available from a food joint named Spike's Teriyaki Bowl which have closed down. I have heard rumblings that one of Spike's children has opened a place, B-Man's Teriyaki & Burgers that serves similar food items.

Anyhow, back to the burgers. They are so delicious! When we lived in California we would make quite a long trip to get Teriyaki Burgers and Teriyaki Rice Bowls.  Now that I live very far away, making it at home is a great substitute. This is more of an outline of ingredients than a recipe per se, but I hope you enjoy it. Onto the recipe!



Teriyaki Avocado Pineapple Burgers
Makes several servings

1-2 lbs ground beef
Teriyaki sauce/glaze (I strongly recommend you try to find Samurai Sam's Teriyaki Sauce, it is fantastic)
pineapple slices
1 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. brown sugar
sliced ripe avocado
burger buns
mayo

1. Mix the ground beef with a few glugs (spoonfuls if you prefer) of Teriyaki sauce. Cook in a saute pan. While that is cooking, in a separate pan combine the pineapple slices, butter and brown sugar and cook until browned. Set aside.

2. Assemble burgers and dig in!
