I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Teriyaki Burger
...in your mind.

Teriyaki Burger


  • One pound ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoon soy
  • 1/2 pound crimini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 3 pineapple rings
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce, store bought or make your own here
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 3 slices Monterey jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup crispy onions
  • Leaf or butter lettuce
  • 3 buns - something good like brioche would be perfect


  1. Put ground beef, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper and soy in a large bowl and mix to combine then shape into patties - just don’t over mix or pack patties too tight cuz they’ll be juicier if you don’t
  2. Heat a small pan, add a tablespoon of neutral oil and cook mushrooms until softened - season with salt & pepper, keep warm and set aside
  3. Heat grill and put on patties & pineapple slices - cook burgers until desired doneness (about 5 minutes each side) and pineapple until good grill marks appear - brushing both with teriyaki sauce once flipped
  4. While they cook, combine mayo, a couple tablespoons teriyaki sauce and sriracha - mix well and set aside
  5. When patties are almost done, add cheese, close lid and allow to melt and toast buns
  6. Build burgers: bun, sauce, lettuce, patty, mushrooms, crispy onions, top bun
