Pork & Pineapple Burger

Summery weather calls for summer fruits and easy to eat food - burgers seemed to fit the bill.

2 granny smith apples, peeled and thinly sliced
1/3 cup whole egg mayonnaise
1 1/2tbs white wine vinegar
salt and pepper
300g pork fillet, trimmed and halved
olive oil, for brushing
150g pineapple, peeled and thinly sliced
4 burger buns, halved
BBQ sauce and rocket leaves, to serve

Preheat oven to 200C. Combined the mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and pepper. Toss apples through mayonnaise. Set aside.
Brush pork with oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Fry Pork for 2mins each side and then place on baking tray and roast for 10mins or until cooked through. Cover and set aside. Brush pineapple slices with oil and fry until browned. Brush the buns with oil and fry until browned. Slice the pork. Spread the bun halves with BBQ sauce and top with pineapple, pork, apple mixture and rocket leaves. Serves 4.

ease: 3.5/5. You need to grill a few things and also have to roast the pork as well.
prep time: 15mins to brown pork and get other ingredients cooked and ready.
cooking time: 12mins to cook pork in oven.
total: 27mins.

taste: 4.5/5. Boys liked it - dad said it would have been nicer if the pork had more seasoning.

would I make it again: Yes. It's a little fiddly but everyone liked it.
