Terrific Teriyaki Burgers
1 1/2 C soft bread crumbs
1/2 C chopped Onion
1/4 C Water
2 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Clove garlic, minced (I used a few shakes of garlic powder)
Dash ground ginger
1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef (I used a pound for our family of 4)
6 hamburger buns
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.
Grill uncovered, turning once, for 15-18 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of patty registers 160 degrees. (I eye balled it and cooked until no longer pink)
For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on the grill rack; cover and grill as above. Makes: 6 servings.
