If using 93% lean Ground Beef, add 1/4 cup soft bread crumbs and 1 egg white to ingredients in step 1. 

If fruit chunks in chutney are large, use kitchen shears to snip them into smaller pieces.

Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.


  • 1 Pound ground beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 1/4 Cup mango chutney
  • 2 Teaspoons Caribbean jerk seasoning
  • 4 fresh or canned pineapple slices, cut 1/2 inch thick
  • 4 Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split
  • 4 slices sharp Cheddar cheese


Combine Ground Beef, chutney and jerk seasoning in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.

Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.

Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange pineapple slices around patties.

Grill, uncovered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

Grill pineapple, uncovered, 8 minutes or until heated through (gas grilling times remain the same).

About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place rolls, cut sides down, on grill.

Grill until lightly toasted.

During last minute of grilling, top each burger with cheese.

Place 1 pineapple slice and burger patty on bottom of each bun.

Close sandwiches.
