  1. Combine the beef, 1/2 cup coconut, cilantro, egg, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon cream of coconut, soy sauce, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in a bowl until well mixed. Form into 4 patties, and set aside.
  2. Stir together the mayonnaise with 2 teaspoons of cream of coconut and 1 tablespoon of cilantro; set aside. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in 1 cup of coconut and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook and stir until the coconut has turned golden brown. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate.
  4. Cook the burgers on the preheated grill to your desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. Spread both cut sides of the hamburger buns with the cilantro mayonnaise. Place the cooked burgers on the bottom buns, sprinkle with the toasted coconut, and serve.

Very different and good! I used the regular sweetened coconut since I can never find unsweetened. I thought that 1 cup of mayo for 4 burgers seemed like an awful lot, so I decreased the amount...

Just a few notes: Only use the egg if using a very lean cut of meat like ground sirloin. Also, I use the regular sweetened flaked coconut. Reduce the salt to your taste but don't use less than 1...

Made these for dinner Tuesday night. These were absolutely the best burgers I have ever eaten! Loved them! Used sweetened coconut(couldn't find unsweetened). Added a little oatmeal to hold them...

OMG these were insanely delicious!!! Thoughts: I didn't use the egg - didn't see the reason for it. Left out the salt you don't need it w/ the soy sauce being present. Drop the mayo to 1/2 cu...

My favorite recipe so far on Allrecipes. I love coconut so this was delicious!! I definitely recommend the hawaiian bread, I made little sliders with the rolls.

I had a tropical themed party and this is one of the items I made. I was worried about the salt content because of the previous review but everybody really liked the burgers and nobody complaine...

yummy! i love the crunchy sweet and salty coconut topping. I used fat free mayo for the cilanto-coconut spread. I did use the egg but I don't think it was needed. Definitely try this!
