    Loved the teriyaki sauce and left out the peppers. Grilled some fresh pineapple to go with it. Very good! Made for ZWT7.

    We LOVED these burgers! The teriyaki sauce and bell peppers gave them such fresh flavor, and the peppers still had a bit of crunch. They were very nice and juicy. I put thousand island dressing and lettuce on them. Just YUM! We will have these again many times. Thanks Charmie! ZWT7 - Shady Ladies

    Very good and easy. I made this as written and left the diced peppers out for DH. I would recommend that you keep them in the mixture. Made for ZWT7

    Yum! Nice burger. I made it as directed and loved how simple it was and such a nice flavor. Thanks Charmie for a nice dinner. Served with mac salad. Made for ZWT7 for the Emerald City Shakers.

    mmm lovely flavour! I used Kikkoman teriyaki sauce and had to use an orange sweet pepper which added a lovely sweet flavour. The pinapple gave them a wonderful freshness. I will be making these again, thanks for posting.

    Great burgers! I used some jerk marinade instead of the marinade listed for great burgers! Made for Zaar world tour 5/Carribean. Thanks for sharing!
