Some Australians add grilled onions to this burger—feel free to make it your own.

1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Asian chile paste such as sambal oelek
1 1/4 pounds ground beef chuck
4 kaiser rolls, split
4 pineapple rings
1 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided
4 large eggs
3/4 cup drained sliced pickled beets


Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal (medium heat for gas); see Grilling Procedure .

Combine ketchup, mayonnaise, and chile paste.

Mix beef with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper, then form into 4 (4 1/4-inch-diameter) patties.

Lightly toast rolls on grill.

Pat pineapple dry and brush with 1/2 tablespoon oil.

Oil grill rack, then grill pineapple and burgers, covered only if using a gas grill, turning once, until pineapple is tender and caramelized and burgers are medium-rare, about 4 minutes total.

Heat remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot, then fry eggs.

Spread chile mayonnaise on rolls, then assemble burgers with pineapple, beets, eggs, lettuce, and tomato.

Cooks’ note: Rolls, pineapple, and burgers can be cooked in a hot oiled large (2-burner) ridged grill pan over medium-high heat.
