5) Turn the patties and keep pineapple and tomato slices beside meat.
6) Apply 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine on the patties and season tomatoes with salt and pepper.

9) Boil the mixture for 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens.
10) Mix in remaining 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, lemon juice, and green onions.
