I used pre-formed frozen burger patties, so this was very easy to put together. The marinade does a good job of flavoring the burgers, and helping to keep them juicy while grilling.
The intrigue of a marinated burger consumed me. I found these leaned a little towards being too tart, perhaps because of the acidity. I had hoped, too, that the marinade would penetrate the burgers to a certain degree. I haven't given up on this notion and feel inspired to try it again with a few tweeks. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag.
I was a bit skeptical about this recipe because we generally don't like worcestershire/A-1 sauce marinades, but the interesting additional ingredients forced me to try it. So glad, too--a nice marinade that lets the meat's taste come through, but with added flavor and juiciness. It was a little hard to keep the patties together, but once they hit the grill they stayed formed. Thanks, VA.
