Method

  1. Combine the mince, coriander, garlic and chilli in a bowl. Divide into 2 thin, equal-sized patties.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and fry the patties, covered, for 6-7 mins each side, or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat and add the pineapple slices. Cook for 2-3 mins each side, until browned. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  4. Add the rolls, cut-side down, to the griddle pan and toast until lightly golden. Top the bottom half of each roll with 2 round lettuce leaves, followed by a cooked pork burger. Spread a layer of mayonnaise over the top of the burger, then add the pineapple slices and the red onion. Sandwich with the top half of the roll. Serve with coleslaw, if you like.
