  • 1/2 red onion, grated
  • 400g beef mince
  • 2 tsp Dunn's River Jamaican Jerk Seasoning
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 a pineapple, finely chopped
  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped

  • 4 Brioche buns
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Grace's Jamaican Style BBQ Jerk Sauce


  1. Chop up your pineapple, and add to a small saucepan with the honey, chilli and nutmeg, and cook over medium heat until the pineapple starts to become sticky and slightly brown, and leave to cool.
  2. In the meantime, grate your onion and add to a bowl with your minced meat, jerk seasoning and oregano and give a good mix, then shape into 4 round patties and set aside.
  3. Brush your burgers with olive oil to avoid sticking, and cook on a hot barbecue until cooked to your liking.
  4. While the burgers are cooking, add your coriander and lime juice to the pineapple relish, and prepare your buns and toppings.
  5. Serve up the burgers with lettuce, smoked cheddar and top with relish and a generous helping of Grace Foods' Jamaican Style BBQ Jerk Sauce and enjoy!

  • Like the concepts of the recipes - but the paste can defo be home made - just a thought - it would give it that extra freshness and take out that raw heat the seasoning gives - the longer it sits the more raw it gets.
