  • Sriracha Ketchup
  • ⅓ cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons minced shallot
  • ½ teaspoon cider vinegar
  • Sliders
  • 1 pound 0%-lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 6 ounces fresh pineapple ( ¼ inch thick)
  • 4 scallions, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms (about 1¼ cups)
  • toasted slider buns, preferably whole-wheat
  • ⅓ cup arugula

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. To prepare ketchup: Whisk ketchup, Sriracha, shallot and vinegar in a small bowl.
  3. To prepare sliders: Combine beef, Worcestershire, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Form into 6 patties, about 3 inches in diameter.
  4. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Assemble each burger on a bun with a scant 1 tablespoon of the Sriracha Ketchup, pineapple, scallion, mushrooms and arugula.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate Sriracha Ketchup (Step 2) for up to 3 days.
  • To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
