Teriyaki burgers are a little trip for your mouth to Asia. They’re easy to prepare and you can jazz them up any way you want.

Many years ago, my good friend, Marilyn Freed, had a barbecue and had these interesting tasting burgers on the grill. When I asked her how she made them, she showed me a pack of seasoning from the Noh company. Ever since then, I have kept a package of Noh Teri Burger mix in my pantry.

But, you know, there are times when you’re craving Teriyaki burgers and you’ve used the last pack of Noh, so you have to do what you have to do. You could use a bottle of Teriyaki sauce but you can also easily create your own Teriyaki sauce. If you create your own sauce, you can control what goes in it, and that’s always a good thing. More than likely, you have the ingredients for the sauce already in your pantry. I included the sauce in the recipe below.

Usually, I put green onions in my Teriyaki burgers, but if you don’t have them, you can use dehydrated onions instead. You will still get great flavor, but without little bits of green onion sticking to your grill.

These burgers are part of my series on Pub Burgers. You could include them in a barbecue with some of the other burgers, the Habenero Cheddar Burgers, Mediterranean Burgers, or the Gorgonzola Burgers. Use a cast-iron grill/griddle or put them on a Weber or other outdoor barbecue. Regardless, please enjoy them.

What to Serve with Teriyaki Burgers

These burgers would be great with Asian Noodles with Brocolli, Asian Cucumber Salad, and fruit. Start off with Mai Tais and serve the burger with stout or ale which will stand up to the flavors.
