  • 1 T canola oil
  • ¼ C chopped yellow onion
  • 1½ lbs. 80% ground chuck
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 T ginger, grated
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped
  • 1/3 C teriyaki sauce, plus ¼ C for basting

Preparation

Sauté onion with oil in a skillet over medium heat until softened. Let cool.

Place the rest of the burger ingredients in a large bowl. Add sautéed onion and mix well together.  Form eight patties, 1″ thick.
