  • Garlic- 2 tsp
  • Cilantro- 1/4 oz
  • Red Onion- 1
  • Pineapple- 8 oz
  • Ground Pork- 20 oz
  • Soy Sauce- 2 tbsp
  • Honey- .32 oz
  • Persian Cucumbers- 2
  • Brioche Buns- 4
  • Spring Mix Lettuce- 4 oz
  • White Wine Vinegar- 2 tsp
  • Mayonnaise- 4 tbsp



1  PREHEAT AND PREP.    Wash and dry all produce. Preheat toaster oven or oven to 400 degrees. Mince or grate garlic until you have 2 tsp (you may not use all). Chop cilantro. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Drain pineapple.


SHAPE PORK PATTIES.    In a large bowl, mix together pork, cilantro, garlic, soy sauce, and honey. Shape into four ¾-inch-thick patties. Season with salt and pepper.


3 MAKE RELISH      Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, tossing, until softened, 3-4 minutes. Toss pineapple into pan and cook until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside.


4  COOK PATTIES       Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add patties to pan and cook until browned on bottom, 4-5 minutes. Flip, cover pan, and cook on other side until no longer pink in center, 3-4 minutes more.


5  TOSS SALAD AND TOAST BUNS.     Meanwhile, thinly slice cucumbers. Split buns in half and toast in toaster oven or oven until golden brown, 3-5 minutes. (TIP: Place the buns on a baking sheet if toasting them in the oven.) In another large bowl, toss lettuce, cucumbers, 2 tsp vinegar (we sent more), and a large drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.


6  ASSEMBLE AND SERVE.    Spread buns with mayonnaise, then fill with patties, relish, and a small amount of salad. Divide between plates and serve with remaining salad on the side.
