Grilled sweet and salty Spam and pineapple and Maui onion make these pork burgers a standout. If you can't find Hawaiian sandwich rolls, cut thick slices of Hawaiian sweet bread from a loaf. Serve with classic macaroni salad and any drink with an umbrella.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a grill to medium heat (350° to 450°). In a medium bowl, mix pork, salt, and pepper until just combined (do not overmix). Divide into 4 portions and form into 1/2-in. patties with a slight depression in the center of each to help them cook evenly. Brush burgers with oil.

Step 2

Whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar, and lime juice in a small bowl to combine. Brush pineapple and Spam slices with soy mixture.

Step 3

Grill burgers, pineapple, Spam, and onion, turning once, until burger is cooked through, grill marks form on pineapple and Spam, and onion softens, about 3 minutes for Spam and 7 minutes for other ingredients. Grill rolls, cut side down, until grill marks form, about 2 minutes.

Step 4

Spread bottoms of rolls with mayonnaise. Top with burgers, onion, pineapple, and Spam. Spoon a small amount of coleslaw on each and cover with tops of rolls.
