I’m so excited, tomorrow my husband and I are going home to NJ for a few days! I’m so happy that this time I’m finally able to get together with my roomates from college in NYC. I feel like everytime we visit home, we try and cram so much in to a short timeframe that someone always gets left out, but this time I think I have all my bases covered.
So the other day my cake baking buddy mentioned something about loving a teriyaki burger. I had never thought of using my teriyaki marinade recipe that I normally use on chicken on a burger! I also sauteed some onions with a few dashes of teriyaki sauce (just from a bottle) and they were so good! I will definitely be making these again soon!
Ingredients-Yields 3 burgers
-1/3 cup teriyaki sauce + 1 teaspoon for onions
-1/3 cup soy sauce
-2 tablespoons sugar
-2 tablespoons brown sugar
-2 tablespoons flour
-1 teaspoon garlic powder
-1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
-1lb ground beef
-3 slices Swiss cheese
-1 sweet onion, cut into strips
1. In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine the soy sauce, the 1/3 teriyaki sauce, both white and brown sugars, flour, garlic and ginger. Simmer for 6-7 minutes until thickened.
2. Place formed burger patties in a bowl, pour teriyaki marinade over top and marinate for 1 hour (Make sure to save some marinade for basting on the grill!!!)
3. Cook burgers on the grill over medium heat for about 6 minutes each side. Top with Swiss cheese.
4. Place onion strips in pan over medium-high heat. Drizzle with olive oil, garlic powder and a dash of salt. After strips have become a little translucent, add 1 teaspoon of teriyaki sauce. Cook another 5 minutes, serve on top of burger.
