Terrific Teriyaki Burgers
Bursting with flavor, these enhanced grilled burgers are sure to be a hit.
1 1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
Dash ground ginger
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
6 hamburger buns, split and toasted
Sliced cucumbers (optional)
Lettuce leaves (optional)
- Stir together the soft bread crumbs, onion, water, sugar, soy sauce, garlic, and ground ginger in a large mixing bowl. Add the ground beef and mix well. Shape the meat mixture into six 3/4-inch-thick patties.
- For a charcoal grill, place patties on the grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 15 to 18 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of a patty registers 160°F (70°C), turning once.
- For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on the grill rack; cover and grill as above.
- Serve burgers in buns topped, if desired, with sliced cucumbers and lettuce.
Makes 6 servings.
Test Kitchen Tip: When grilling, to test for medium heat, you should be able to hold your hand over the heat at the height the food will cook for 4 seconds before having to pull your hand away.
