From R. Reisman. Sweet burgers with nice flavours. Would used a bit less brown sugar next time as it the sauce is quite sweet!
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon water
- 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons crushed garlic
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons crushed fresh ginger
- 1 lb lean ground chicken breast
- 1 large egg
- 1⁄3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
- 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro or 3 tablespoons parsley
- To make the teriyaki sauce, place the sugar, soy sauce, water, vinegar, oil, cornstarch, garlic and ginger in a small skillet. Simmer for 3 minutes or just until thickened.
- Remove 3 Tbsp for the chicken mixture.
- To make the burgers, combine the chicken, egg, bread crumbs and green onion with the reserved 3 Tbsp of sauce. Form into 5 burgers.
- Grill or sauté in a hot nonstick skillet sprayed with vegetable spray, for about 6 minutes per side, or until no longer pink.
- Garnish with sesame seeds and cilantro. Serve with the remaining sauce.
I tried this for dinner with the family. They really enjoyed it. My daughter, who hates burgers, ate the whole thing. I used some Kikoman's teriyaki Baste & Glaze that I had on hand instead of making my own. I served them on potato buns with some lettuce and a sauce I made. I mixed 3 tablespoons of mayo, 1 teaspoon of the teriyaki glaze, and 1 teaspoon of ketchup (nix the garnish). It was yummy. I am absolutely going to make these again. Great AND easy recipe.
My family loved these and didn't need to put the sauce on. My DH did them on the stove though and we didn't do the garnish. I used a ground turkey and ground beef mixture, 1/4 C Sucanat, 2 T red wine vin., and dried seasonings. Definitely saving this.
I thought these were delicious!!! I did make some changes: I used 1/4 cup brown sugar, I noticed I was out of soy sauce at the last minute so I substituted Braggs liquid aminos, I had to use red wine vinegar and the sesame oil was the spicy kind. As far as my roommate and I are concerned they turned out perfect! Thank you, this is going in my 'Six Stars' cookbook!
