Instead of using a sauce on the outside, I'm putting key teriyaki flavorings into the ground meat for these teriyaki burgers. Ideally these burgers should be cooked on a medium-hot charcoal grill, weather permitting.

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Break up ground beef with the tip of a fork in a bowl. Drizzle in the soy sauce, sake, mirin, Worcestershire sauce, and sriracha sauce; crumble in brown sugar. Use tines of a fork to evenly distribute ingredients. Finish mixing with your hands (ideally your hands should be very cold for this). Shape into 4 equal-sized patties.

  • Grill until browned and cooked through turning once, 3 or 4 minutes per side. When burgers develop a slight dome shape and juices begin to come through the top surface, they are done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  • Serve burgers on slider buns with lettuce and tomato slices.

Cook's Note:

These burgers can also be grilled indoors in a grill pan over medium high heat.

Pretty good quick and easy. I also agree with the other reviewer that it needed Pineapple. I added fresh pineapple slices to mine instead of the tomato. Read More

These really tired to fall apart while grilling. I chilled the formed patties because they seemed too moist not sure if that helped or not. They were hard to turn and without exceptional care would have become fuel for the fire. The taste was great. Hubby asked where the grilled pineapple was. Opps next time! Read More
