  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. I tagged these and was really excited because I have been looking for recipes to use ground chicken. We liked the burgers themselves, but were not that fond of the sauce. If I was to make it again, I would use less rice vinegar and more soy. I used 1/4 cup of brown sugar and found it was just sweet enough. Thanks for sharing!
