About Teriyaki Burgers
Teriyaki burgers have become very popular in the western world because Teriyaki sauce is so simple to make and combines perfectly with the grilling or broiling of meat.
The word “Teriyaki” is a combination of two Japanese words teri and yaki. Teri means shine or luster, referring to the shine of the sauce on the meat, yaki means the cooking method (grilling or broiling).
So Teriyaki Burgers should have a shiny patty and cooked on a grill or broiler, Teriyaki Burgers can be made from chicken, beef, pork and even lamb meat.
The Teriyaki sauce used for making Teriyaki Burgers will vary depending on the recipe but will usually be made up of soy sauce, sake, mirin, brown sugar and fresh ginger.
If you are in a hurry or would like a simpler recipe you can use a store bought Teriyaki sauce.
Teriyaki Burger Cooking Tips
- If you haven’t cooked with Japanese ingredients before then using a store bought Teriyaki sauce is a good place to start.
- While broiling or grilling your Teriyaki Burgers you should brush them with your Teriyaki sauce every two or three minutes, this will give them their trademark sticky and shiny surface.
- If you can’t broil or grill then you can cook Teriyaki Burgers in a heavy bottomed skillet but you will lose some of the flavor associated with grilling.
