2 tablespoons tomato paste
1-1/2 teaspoons fresh or dried chopped chives
1-1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint
Salt and pepper
4 whole wheat or regular hamburger buns, split and toasted


Wasabi-Mayonnaise Spread:

2 to 4 tablespoons wasabi paste

Directions:

1. Combine Ground Beef, pineapple juice, green onions, tomato paste, chives, and mint in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape beef mixture into four 1/2-inch thick patties.
2. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add patties; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. Season burgers with salt and pepper, as desired.
3. Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise and wasabi, as desired, in small bowl.

Cook’s Tip:
 Cooking instructions 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.
Cook’s Tip:
  To caramelize pineapple slices, heat small amount of butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until melted. Place pineapple slices in skillet; cook until heated through and edges brings to brown, turning once.
