Sweet & Spicy Sliders

Sweet & Spicy Sliders

Grilled sweet pineapple and spicy Sriracha ketchup balance each other in this healthy burger recipe.


Sriracha Ketchup

  • ⅓ cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons minced shallot
  • ½ teaspoon cider vinegar


  • 1 pound 90%-lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 6 slices fresh pineapple (¼ inch thick)
  • 4 scallions, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms (about 1 ¼ cups)
  • 6 toasted slider buns, preferably whole-wheat
  • ⅓ cup arugula


  • Preheat grill to medium-high.
  • To prepare ketchup: Whisk ketchup, Sriracha, shallot and vinegar in a small bowl.
  • To prepare sliders: Combine beef, Worcestershire, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Form into 6 patties, about 3 inches in diameter.
  • Oil the grill rack. Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 160°F, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Grill pineapple and scallions until lightly browned and tender, 1 to 3 minutes per side. Cut the scallions into 2-inch lengths.
  • Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until tender and all the liquid evaporates, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Assemble each burger on a bun with a scant 1 tablespoon of the Sriracha Ketchup, pineapple, scallion, mushrooms and arugula.


  • Oiling a grill rack before you grill foods helps ensure that the food won’t stick. Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to coat the food with cooking spray.
  • Refrigerate Sriracha Ketchup (Step 2) for up to 3 days.
