Teriyaki Beef Burger

Preparation time: 40 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Serves 4

400g beef mince

1 red onion, finely chopped

1/3 cup continental parsley, chopped

1 tblsp (20ml) tomato sauce

1 tblsp (20ml) Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce

1 egg, beaten

Olive oil spray

4 large slices tasty cheese

4 rashers bacon, rind removed, halved

4 wholemeal rolls or hamburger buns, split and toasted**

4 tblsp (80ml) Kikkoman Thick Teriyaki Marinade and Stir Fry Sauce

3 iceberg lettuce leaves, finely shredded

2 tomatoes, thinly sliced

8 slices beetroot

4 pineapple rings/Mayo (optional)


Combine mince, red onion, parsley, tomato sauce, soy sauce and egg in a large bowl, using your hands to kneed until fully mixed together. Shape the mixture into four 2cm thick round patties, place on a plate, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes* for flavours to develop. Meanwhile, preheat barbecue hot plate to medium and spray with oil. Preheat oven to 150 deg C.

Remove patties from refrigerator and cook for 3-4 minutes each side or until almost cooked through. Transfer to an oiled baking tray. Place patties in oven first and cook for a further 4-5 minutes before coating them with Kikkoman Thick Teriyaki Marinade and Stir Fry Sauce, then add the cheese slices. Top each burger with the cheese slices and bake until cheese starts to melt. Meanwhile, add bacon to hot plate and cook for 2 minutes each side or until crisp and cooked to your liking.

Spread the bases of the rolls with the mayo if you like. Top with lettuce, tomato, beetroot, pineapple rings if using, patties and bacon. Drizzle each burger with extra Thick Teriyaki Marinade and Stir Fry Sauce. Cover with bun tops and serve immediately.

*Tip: beef mixture can be prepared several hours before and refrigerated until required. Alternatively, the beef mixture can be prepared well in advance, shaped into patties then frozen. Defrost when required.

** Brush buns with oil before toasting to stop sauce from soaking in.
