Jamaican Sesame Mint Burgers
Makes 4 to 6 servings

This sweet and salty combination makes me never want to eat an ordinary beef patty again! Simple mayonnaise is enough to dress up this one; its subtle flavor complements the sweet pineapple, hint of mint and rich sesame flavor.

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon dried mint
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • One 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, divided
  • About ¼ cup quick oats
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Pineapple rings, for garnish
  • 4 to 6 sesame buns
  1. Combine beef, honey, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, ginger, mint, salt and 1/2 cup of the crushed pineapple, drained. Reserve remaining pineapple and juice for basting sauce. Add oats as needed to help burgers stay together.
  2. Heat juice, wine, soy sauce and brown sugar in a sauce pan on low to medium heat until thickened.
  3. Form patties and grill or fry. As they cook, baste the burgers with the sauce intermittently.
  4. Serve on a toasted sesame bun topped with a pineapple ring dowsed with some of the remaining basting sauce and your favorite burger toppings.
