Teriyaki Burgers


These could be made with ground turkey or chicken as well. The addition of the onions, breadcrumb, ketchup and teriyaki keeps them moist and flavorful.


  • 12oz (360gr) ground beef (mince)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 rib celery, finely chopped – about 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped – about 1/4 cup
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tbs breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 tbs Teriyaki sauce or Soy sauce
  • 1 tbs ketchup


  • Heat oil in a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  • Add garlic, celery, onion and sauté until onion is transparent, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and put into a large bowl.
  • Add Teriyaki sauce, ketchup, breadcrumbs and ginger.
  • Mix well.
  • Add beef and mix gently, hands work best.
  • Shape into 4 patties.
  • Cook on barbecue grill over direct heat for 3 – 5 minutes per side, depending on how you like them.
  • Remove and serve.


Substitute soy sauce for the Teriyaki sauce.
We like to use a hinged basket, lightly oiled for burgers. It makes them easy to turn. A non-stick grill mat is also a good – or just directly on the grill. You could even fry them in a skillet.
