These Hawaiian Pork Sliders are easy, quick, and oh-so-flavorful. Mini burgers made from pork, basted with barbecue sauce, and topped with a pineapple ring. Delish!
The second I saw these, I knew I’d be bumping something else off of the current week’s planned for and already bought ingredients. I needed to make them – with some modifications, but nonetheless, they were getting made asap. Sometimes your taste buds cannot…will not…be denied.
I’m so used to beef burgers, that not only was this a wonderful change of pace (and taste! and texture!), but the simple seasonings and added pineapple with barbecue sauce was just…a little part of my heart leapt for joy after each bite. I seriously dreamt about these for days afterward.
Go grill some up! They are way too delicious, easy, and quick not to.

How To Make These Pork Sliders Recipe
Hawaiian Pork Sliders
- 1 1/2 pounds ground pork
- 1/2 cup minced scallions
- 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- salt and pepper
- 8 rings of pineapple
- 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
- 8 King's Hawaiian rolls
- In a large bowl, using your hands, mix the pork, scallions, ground ginger, salt and pepper until just combined. Don’t over mix! Gently form 8 equal patties, with a slight indentation in the middle (this helps keep the burgers from bulging in the middle.)
- Preheat your grill for medium-high. Coat the grates with oil or nonstick cooking spray. Place the pork patties on the hot grill and lightly coat tops with barbecue sauce. Cover the grill and cook for about 5 minutes. Flip the burgers and coat with more barbecue sauce.
- After you’ve flipped the burgers, place the pineapple rings down on the grill. Cook the burgers for another 4-5 minutes, until cooked through. Cook the pineapple rings for about 3 minutes, or until you have nice grill marks on one side. Flip the pineapple and grill another 1-2 minutes. Remove the pineapple and burgers from the grill and let them rest 5 minutes.
- While the meat is resting, toast the rolls on the hot grill until the edges brown nicely, about 1-2 minutes.
- Spread a tad more barbecue sauce (and mayo, like I did…gasp!) on the rolls, add the burger patty and a pineapple ring, then the other roll. Serve immediately.
