Hawaiian Pork Burgers

We were having a debate on what to have for dinner. I had thawed pork loin chops yesterday
but we ended up skipping it. I didn't have a meal planned for tonight because of a prior plan, but it got cancelled. My husband suggested burgers so I thought I could just grind up the pork I had and make pork burgers. After a few searches and remembering that we had some leftover fresh from Hawaii pineapple some friends brought us, I came up with an idea and set to work!

24 oz ground pork(give or take, I ground my own so I think it was a bit more, the packages in store are generally around 24 ounces)
3 green onions
1 TB soy sauce
1 TB water
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp white sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1/2 cup grated granny smith apple(about 1 small apple)
salt and black pepper to taste

Fresh pineapple slices
Swiss cheese slices
6 buns
BBQ sauce of choice (my fave)
red onion slices
green leaf lettuce

Place all the burger ingredients in a large bowl. 

Mix together gently until just combined, don't over work it.

Shape into 6 patties.

Grill or Broil to a internal temp of 160.  Place a strip of pineapple(you can grill or broil it first, or leave it fresh) and a slice of cheese and cook until cheese is melted.

Toast your buns and , spread bottom of the bun with BBQ add some lettuce, then your finished patty, top with red onions and the other half of the bun (spread with more BBQ if you like)
