Mom used to make these to stretch the budget. Now I fix them because they are tasty and my family asks for them. Dad asks that we make extras so he can make sandwiches the next day.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ground beef
- 1 1⁄2 cups soft breadcrumbs (2 slices)
- 1⁄2 cup onion (chopped)
- 2 large eggs (beaten)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1 small garlic clove (crushed)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon msg
- 1 dash ginger
- Combine ground beef with remaining ingredients.
- Mix well.
- Shape into 6 patties or 3 larger steaks.
- Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 10 minutes, turning once.
- These burgers can also be pan grilled.
Very unique tasting burgers! I normally cook my burgers on the grill, but chose to broil these as suggested in the recipe. I was pleasantly surprised by how moist and tastey they were. I did leave out the msg, and substituted oatmeal for the breadcrumbs, but otherwise I made it as posted. Thanks for sharing!
We enjoyed these very much. My 6 generous patties did not shrink at all, were tender and had good flavor. Looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow. Thanks for sharing this one.
Delicious burgers! This will be one of my OAMC recipes. They do freeze well before cooking and there are so many ways to serve them. This one is a keeper. Made for PAC Spring 08. Thanks for posting CAMom.
