1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce 

1 tablespoon honey 

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 


8 canned pineapple rings

1 large red bell pepper, cut into rings 

1 1/2 pounds ground beef 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Teriyaki sauce, as needed 

4 slices provolone cheese 

2 tablespoons butter 

4 onion rolls, halved

1/2 red onion, thinly sliced 

Green lettuce leaves, for topping


  1. For the sauce: Stir together the mayo, teriyaki sauce, honey and cayenne in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. For the burgers: Set a grill pan over medium-high heat (you can also use a skillet).
  3. Grill the pineapple and bell pepper rings until they have great grill marks on both sides (or brown them in the hot skillet), about 5 minutes.
  4. Season the ground beef and form it into 4 equal-size patties. Cook them over medium heat on the grill for 4 to 5 minutes on the first side, then flip them over and add a splash of teriyaki sauce on top of each one. Place a slice of cheese on each patty and let it melt while the burger cooks through, about 4 minutes longer.
  5. Butter a griddle or separate skillet set over medium heat. Place the rolls cut-side down and cook until brown, about a minute.
  6. Spoon a little bit of the sauce on both sides of the rolls and allow it to soak into the bread. Place the patties on the bottom buns and top each with 2 pineapple slices and some red onion slices, bell pepper rings and lettuce. Top with the top buns and smush it all together. Serve with extra sauce for dipping.
