6,601,676 views  The Big Kahuna Burger is one of the countless themes running throughout numerous Tarantino films, almost as prevalent as revenge, lurid violence, and racial epithets.

3 slices thin pineapple

3.

In a large cast iron skillet, heat vegetable oil over high heat, until smoking.  Place beef balls several inches apart in skillet, and smash down using a large, flat spatula.  Use a rolling pin or the handle of another spatula to press the burgers firmly down, until they are thin and craggly.  Cook for approximately 60 seconds, until the bottom is charred and crispy.  Flip, and immediately top with cheese.  Remove from heat, but leave burgers in the pan while you assemble, so the cheese melts completely.  Dress bun with ketchup and teriyaki sauce, top with burgers, then caramelized onions and pineapple.
