Ingredients

For the teriyaki sauce:

  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

For the burgers:

  • 2 pounds ground beef (preferably grass-fed True Aussie Ground Beef)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Suggested condiments:

  • Hawaiian sweet roll buns
  • Extra teriyaki sauce
  • Mayonnaise
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Sliced tomato
  • Sliced onion
  • Sliced pineapple

Instructions

  • Heat your grill to a medium-high temperature. If using the Big Green Egg, you’ll want the temperature to get to about 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • First, make the teriyaki sauce. Combine all ingredients except cornstarch in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Let come to a low simmer, then whisk in cornstarch until sauce begins to thicken. Turn off heat and let sit at room temperature while you make the burgers. 
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine all burger ingredients. In this situation, it’s probably easiest to just get in there and mix everything together with your hands. 
  • Once burger ingredients are combined, use your hands to form slider-size patties (make a ball about the size of a lacrosse ball, then flatten it slightly and use your thumb to place an indent in the center to allow the meat to expand while cooking.)
  • Place sliders on the prepared grill and cook for just a few minutes each side. Since the patties are small, they won’t take much time at all to cook. 
  • Remove burgers from the grill and immediately brush with some of the prepared teriyaki sauce. Reserve the remaining sauce to serve as a condiment. 
  • Serve burger patties alongside sliced Hawaiian rolls and the rest of the suggested condiments. Let guests build their sliders as they please!
