The all-American hamburger takes an Asian turn when you add soy sauce, garlic and ginger.


  • 1 1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • dash ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 6 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • Sliced cucumbers (optional)
  • Lettuce leaves (optional)


  1. Stir together the soft bread crumbs, onion, water, sugar, soy sauce, garlic, and ground ginger in a large mixing bowl. Add the ground beef and mix well. Shape the meat mixture into six 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  2. For a charcoal grill, place patties on the grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 15 to 18 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of a patty registers 160 degrees F, turning once.
  3. For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on the grill rack; cover and grill as above.
  4. Serve burgers in buns topped, if desired, with sliced cucumbers and lettuce. Makes 6 servings.


  • Test Kitchen Tip: When grilling, to test for medium heat, you should be able to hold your hand over the heat at the height the food will cook for 4 seconds before having to pull your hand away.
