I'm not sure if I'd call these the "Biggest or the Bestest" burgers I've ever had, but they certainly were very good. I was a bit skeptical about using teriyaki in a burger mixture as I thought it might overpower the other flavors, but it was actually a nice addition. I cut the recipe in half for one pound of burger meat and got three nice size patties. I used 1/2 tsp. of dried onion flakes vs. chopped onion (was a bit lazy), 1/4 tsp. of black pepper, left out the salt, and used 1 Tbsp. of low sodium teriyaki and 1 Tbsp. of low sodium soy sauce along with the rest of the ingredients. These held together on the grill perfectly and smelled great. They had a wonderful flavor! Perfect on toasted rolls with melted cheese, grilled onion, lettuce, tomato and a dill pickle on the side!
Personally I did not care for these burgers at all. I followed the recipe exactly, but the burgers tasted very "oriental" and were extremely salty (and believe me, I like alot of salt on my burgers!). My 2 and 3 year olds would not touch these after one bite. I'd suggest cutting the recipe in half so you only waste one pound of hamburger if you don't like it. I have 5 burgers I'm throwing down the disposal.
This is a great recipe, and while I did leave out the salt (didn't feel like it needed it) it was a great recipe and I appreciate it being posted.
These burgers were really good. I cooked them on the stovetop as we don't have a bbq and I had just cleaned my oven and didn't want to get it dirty! I'm sure the flavor would be even better when grilled or broiled. I'll make these again!
Oh my gosh! This has to be the absolute best hamburger I think I have ever eaten. I followed the recipe ingredients to the letter and wouldn't change a thing. However, after forming patties, I put them in the freezer to firm up a bit since they were pretty moist and I thought that they might fall apart on the grill. The flavors melded together as any great recipe should. We had one burger left-over that I just ate for lunch (two days later) and it was even better today than the first day. I just placed it in the microwave for about 20 seconds, topped with a slice of swiss and some minced green onion and nuked it again for about 10 seconds. No bun necessary. I'm not kidding you - it tasted better than any burger I've ever had. This has become our new favorite burger with or without the bun!
Excellent burgers! We made them Labor Day and everyone loved them!!!
This is one tasty burger! I liked the fact that it didn't have an egg in it, just something with an egg mixed in takes away some beef flavor. I scaled the recipe to 1 serving & then halved it because there is no way that I could eat 1/2 lb. burger (I didn't think the kids would like it & hubbys out). I skipped the salt, used onion powder vs. the onion & subbed steak sauce for the teriyaki (I'm out) & made these on my handy George Foreman grill. YUM! Thanks Susan!!
Absolutely best homemade burger ever! We are not big fans of teriyaki sauce, so we used our favorite steak sauce, Peter Luger's, instead. We didn't use onion buns, as suggested, but used potato buns. We topped the burgers with cheese, bacon, and caramelized onions and now I have to go get something to eat b/c my mouth is watering. A definite keeper !!!
