Cooking Instructions

Preheat an electric tabletop grill.

Place the pork, onion, pepper, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, egg, pork rinds, pepper, and salt in a food processor with the S-blade in place.

(You'll need a full-size food processor; this overwhelmed my little one!) Pulse until the meat is finely ground.

Add the pineapple and pulse to mix.

Form into 5 burgers?the mixture will be quite soft?and slap them on the grill.

Set a timer for 6 minutes.

While the burgers are cooking, mix together the tomato sauce, molasses, Splenda, and mustard.

When the 6 minutes are up, open the grill, spread the tomato sauce mixture evenly over the burgers and then close the grill and cook for 1 more minute.

Serve.
