lean ground beef
salt and pepper to taste
I just cooked this recipe. These burgers are delicious. I read a few of the reviews on this recipe before I attempted this myself. I modified the recipe a bit. I added chopped celery, soy sauce and chopped ginger to the ground beef mixture (before cooking) to add moisture and a kick to the cooked patty. I did not use cheese. I topped off the burgers with chopped mushrooms sauteed in a soy sauce, cornstarch and water mixture,then, I added the usual lettuce and tomatoe toppings. Also, I used whole wheat buns instead. My husband absolutely loved these burgers! I have now cooked these burgers three nights in a row. These burgers are very flavorful and have a tasty kick!
These are a great place to start, but they need help. I added Five Spice, Ginger and Teriyaki Sauce to the burgers and left off the cheese. Added wasabi to the mayo along with a little plum sauce. THEN they were great!
These were a nice change from a regular burger. I added the wasabi paste directly to the ground meat before shaping into patties. We did not use cheese and the mayo was a wasabi mayonnaise.
I'll definitely make these again.
Since my kids were babies I've always made a heart shaped meatloaf for Valentines Day, however, stupid me, just made a meatloaf last week. I obviously wasn't thinking! Because Tuesday evenings is one of my daughters dance nights I had to make something quick, but still wanted it to be a tad festive. Decided on these burgers which, by the way, I did shape into hearts. HA! I used more seasonings and a wasabi mayo. Very difficult to find a burger recipe that doesn't call for breadcrumbs, so this really fit the bill. Kids and hubby were happy and I thank you!
Really great burger! It was a bit dry , though. I would reccommend adding some Worchestershire sauce or maybe even soy sauce to the burgers before grilling. I also used wasabi mayo.
These were really good! I mixed the wasabi in with the meat, onions, and garlic, and added some soy sauce as suggested by someone. I used medium cheddar and mixed a little wasabi & soy sauce in with the mayo. I will definately make these again, but may play with it a bit - they seemed to be missing something, just not sure what it is. My husband liked them a lot and he is hard to please.
I'm pretty impressed! I used ground turkey instead of hamburger, but still really really good. Thanks!
OMG! So juicy and delicious! I added chopped jalapenos.
