ingredients

For Sandwiches
4 slices pineapple
4 slices bread
4 slices Havarti cheese
6 thin slices of red onion
2 tablespoons softened butter

For Barbecue Sauce
½ cup tomato sauce
½ cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons Kikkoman® Soy Sauce
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
½ teaspoon chipotle powder
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
¼ teaspoon garlic powder

directions

  1. Stir together ingredients for barbecue sauce in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, until sauce has thickened. Pour into a small bowl and cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Brush pineapple slices with 2 tablespoons of barbecue sauce and grill over medium-high heat until grill marks appear, about 3 minutes each side.
  3. Place 2 pieces of bread on a clean work surface. Top each piece of bread with 2 slices of cheese, 2 slices of pineapple and 3 slices of red onion. Place remaining slices of bread on top. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once butter melts, add one sandwich and cook for 3 minutes on each side. Repeat with remaining sandwich and butter.
  4. Serve warm with remaining barbecue sauce for dipping.

THE STORY OF SOY SAUCE

Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
