When I got married, 30 years ago, my husband was in the military and these were all the ingredients I had available at the time. I just put them together, and they have been a family favorite ever since. In the winter, I make them in the broiler in the oven.
- 1 pound ground sirloin
- 8 pineapple slices, canned or fresh
- 8 hamburger buns
- pineapple juice from can or fresh pineapple
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup barbeque sauce
- salt and pepper
Divide ground sirloin into eight 1/2" balls and eight patties. Place patties on grill and add sauce on each pattie, grill for a couple of minutes turn over add more sauce. Put one ground sirloin ball into each hole in pineapple slices. Place on grill, add sauce, and grill a couple minutes more before turning over and adding more sauce. Place buns on grill to warm. Place one pattie and one pineapple slice between two buns and serve.
