Yes, you CAN marinate burgers! What you'll get is a highly flavorful hunk o' meat! NEVER EVER squeeze the juice out of a burger while cooking. First of all, it's against the law in 48 states, but also it leaves your burgers dry. Can't have that now can we?

  1. Pour over burgers or steaks and let sit in refrigerator for 1 hour. (Roughly the time it takes to watch that Sopranos episode you missed on HBO On Demand) You can even mix a little into the burger while forming patties.
  2. Cook over hardwood charcoal fire. Grill should be hot enough to sear outside quickly.

Very good flavored burger. The taste reminded me of my favorite steak marinade. I marinated for about 1.5 hours then cooked on a preheated cast iron grill pan on medium high heat for 6 minutes on each side for well done burgers. I will make this again! Thanks for posting Sandi (From CA)

Having never made burgers before, I stumbled upon this on a simple Google search. I will now ALWAYS be using this marinade for burgers. Reading that everyone was saying "it's too salty," I bought Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce, and Low Sodium Worcestershire Sauce. Also added a little bit of water to dilute the marinade a little. Besides that, I followed the recipe exactly and these burgers turned out so rich and juicy (I grilled them on my panini maker/faux-George Foreman Indoor Grill). Thanks for posting this! A ! Will recommend this recipe to anyone and everyone!

I used this for some burgers, for a party me and my wife had for college football this weekend. I stuffed cheese in the burgers to and grilled them. Everyone at the party loved them.. great recipe!!
