 Ingredients List

  • ~~~~~~~~~~ Pineapple Salsa ~~~~~~~~~~
  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • 1 whole green onion (roughly 1/4 cup chopped)
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper (roughly 1/4 cup chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (roughly 1 lime)
  • 1 teaspoon basil paste or fresh chopped basil
  • ~~~~~~~~~~ Sweet Chili Aioli* ~~~~~~~~~~
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg yolk, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce (homemade or store bought)
  • ~~~~~~~~~~ Burgers ~~~~~~~~~~
  • 1/2 pound ground beef, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons lemongrass paste
  • 1 tablespoon basil paste or fresh chopped basil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 hamburger buns


Pineapple Salsa:
In a large bowl, mix together the pineapple, green onion, jalapeno pepper, lime juice, and basil. Chill in the refrigerator while you finish making the burgers.

Sweet Chili Aioli:
In a food processor with a blade attachment, add the garlic and salt. Process until the garlic is finely minced. Add the yolk and pulse a few times until combined (10-15 seconds).
With the motor running, slowly add the olive oil in a thin stream until completely combined (don't add too much at once or the mixture may break). Add the sweet chili sauce and process another 30 seconds. Chill in the refrigerator while you finish making the burgers.

To make the burgers:
In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, lemongrass, basil, and soy sauce. Form four patties, roughly 1/2-inch thick.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium skillet until hot**. Add two of the patties and cook 3 minutes. Flip and cook another 3-5 minutes until desired doneness. Remove from the pan. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil if needed and repeat with the remaining two patties. Serve each patty on a bun topped with the salsa and aioli.
