Celebrate National BBQ Month with Stubbs

By | May 19, 2015

Who doesn't live sliders?  This Sweet Hawaiian Mini Burgers recipe is packed with flavor.  It will transport you to some place tropical!

May is National BBQ Month.  It’s time to break out the grill and move the cooking outdoors.  Now that the weather has finally warmed up (fingers crossed it stays that way), my mouth is watering at the thought of all the burgers, hot dogs, chicken breast, and ribs we are are going to make on the grill this summer.  Yum-O!

In honor of National BBQ month I thought I would share a recipe with you for Sweet Hawaiian Mini Burgers.  Who doesn’t love sliders?  They are so cute and delicious!  Even my picky kids, who normally avoid beef like the plague, can be talked into eating a burger when it comes in miniature form.  These Sweet Hawaiian Mini Burgers are absolutely packed with flavor.  The pineapple and Stubb’s BBQ sauce really jazz it up.

Sweet Hawaiian Mini Burgers Recipe



  • 1 pound ground beef (95% lean)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 canned pineapple slices
  • 12 Hawaiian sweet or small whole wheat dinner rolls, split
  • Lettuce


  • 1/4 cup Stubb’s Sticky Sweet Barbeque Sauce
  • 1/4 cup pineapple preserves
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar

Cooking Instructions:

  • Combine ground beef and Worcestershire sauce in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.
  • Shape into twelve 1/2-inch thick mini patties. Set aside.
  • Combine sauce ingredients in small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  • Place pineapple slices on grill (or on rack in broiler pan if cooking inside); brush with sauce. If cooking in the oven, place pan in oven so surface of pineapple is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil or grill 4 minutes, turning once and brushing with sauce. Remove pineapple, keep warm.
  • Place patties on grill or on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Grill or Broil 7 to 8 minutes for medium (160°F) doneness, until beef is not pink in center and juices show no pink color, turning once and brushing burgers with remaining sauce after turning.
  • Cut each pineapple slice into thirds. Line bottom of each roll with lettuce, top with burger, then with pineapple piece. Close sandwiches.

Makes 4 servings.

This recipe uses Stubb’s BBQ sauce, which is one of my favorites.  I love that none of their sauces, rub, or marinades contain any high fructose corn syrup.  In addition, the company is also working with the Non-GMO Project to verify its line.  For those of you who can’t have gluten, Stubb’s is the only sauce brand to carry the Gluten-Free Organization Certification seal.

I don’t know about you, but now my mouth is watering for BBQ.  I might have to fire up the grill tonight, grab a bottle of Stubb’s and get cooking.  So tell me…  Have you made any BBQ this year yet?
