Teriyaki Beef Burgers Recipe

Teriyaki Beef Burgers

1 ½ lbs. lean ground beef (90% lean)

1 can (8 oz.) water chestnuts, drained and chopped

½ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

1/3 cup sherry or reduced-sodium beef broth

2 green onions

1 Tbsp. brown sugar

2 garlic cloves, minced

½ tsp. ground ginger

6 lettuce leaves

6 hamburger buns, split


In a large bowl, combine the beef and water chestnuts.  Shape into six patties.  Place in a 13 x 9 inch dish.

In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, sherry or broth, onions, brown sugar, garlic and ginger.  Pour ½ cup over patties; cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or overnight.  Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.

Drain and discard marinade.  Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.  Grill patties, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 inch from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until  a meat thermometer reads 160 F. and juices run clear, basting occasionally with reserved marinade.  Serve on lettuce-lines buns.          6 servings
