- 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup pineapple juice from can
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar

1. Combine the cornstarch in cold water and dissolve. Set aside.

3. Add cornstarch water mixture and simmer until thick, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
4. Heat the grill. When hot, clean the grates and spray with oil.
5. Place the patties on the grill and cook on high heat for about 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until burgers are cooked to your liking.
6. While the burgers are cooking, grill the pineapple slices for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Grill the onion slices.
7. To serve, place a piece of lettuce on the bottom of each burger bun. Place your grilled onions, cooked bacon, and sliced tomato onto the bun. Top with the cooked burger and 1 tablespoon of teriyaki sauce, then top with grilled pineapple.
