Terrific Teriyaki Burgers


1 cups soft bread crumbs
cup chopped onion
cup water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
Pinch ground ginger
1 pounds lean ground beef
6 hamburger buns, split and toasted
Sliced cucumbers (optional)
Lettuce leaves (optional)


Serves: 6


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 ¾ 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 degrees F, turning once.

For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on the grill rack; cover and grill.

Serve burgers in buns topped, if desired, with sliced cucumbers and lettuce. 

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.
