Sweet-And-Savory Burgers


Published: Friday, July 6, 2018

¼ c. soy sauce

2 Tbsp. light corn syrup

1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

½ tsp. ground ginger

¼ tsp. garlic powder

2 green onions, thinly sliced

2 lbs. ground beef

¼ c. chili sauce

¼ c. hot red pepper jelly

8 hamburger buns, toasted

Toppings: grilled sweet onion and pineapple slices

Stir together first 6 ingredients. Reserve 3 Tbsp. mixture; cover and chill. Pour remaining soy sauce mixture into a shallow pan or baking dish.

Shape beef into 8 (½" thick) patties; place in a single layer in soy sauce mixture in pan, turning to coat. Cover and chill 4 hours.

Preheat grill to 350°-400° (medium-high) heat. Remove patties from marinade, discarding marinade. Grill patties, covered with grill lid, 5 minutes on each side or until beef is no longer pink in center, basting occasionally with reserved 3 Tbsp. soy sauce mixture.

Stir together chili sauce and jelly. Serve burgers on buns with chili sauce mixture and desired toppings. —8 servings.

Hint: Press your thumb into centers of patties, before grilling, for burgers that cook up flat, rather than domed, across the top.
