Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground beef sirloin
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, grated on the large holes of a box grater
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup firmly-packed light brown sugar
  • 1 ripe pineapple, peeled, quartered, cored and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 dragon fruit, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 6 hamburger buns
Directions
  • Combine the ground beef, ground pork, onion, garlic and 1 tablespoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl; stir until well mixed. Form the mixture into 6 balls. Press 1 teaspoon butter into the center of each ball; wrap the meat around the butter to enclose it and form a patty. Place the patties on a plate and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • Combine 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar, half of the pineapple and the dragon fruit and cilantro in a medium bowl. Toss until well mixed. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Preheat a grill pan or outdoor grill to medium-high.

  • Combine the soy sauce, ginger and the remaining pineapple and brown sugar in a large skillet. Bring to boil, then reduce the heat and maintain a gentle simmer. Remove the patties from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.

  • Place the patties on the grill and cook, flipping halfway through, until no longer pink in the center, 6 to 8 minutes. As the patties finish cooking, transfer them to the simmering sauce and cook, rotating in the sauce, until they are well coated and have absorbed some of the sauce, about 1 minute.

  • Place each patty on a bun, top with some of the salsa and serve hot.
