Teriyaki Beef Burgers

A delicious homemade beef burger flavoured with teriyaki sauce, served in a roll with a crunchy asian inspired salad. Perfect for a summer barbecue.
Active Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4 burgers


  • 500 g Irish Beef Mince - 10%+ fat
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce - I used reduced salt but any will be fine
  • 1 tbsp Japanese rice wine vinegar
  • ½ tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1" cube fresh ginger - finely grated
  • 1 tbsp dark brown sugar

To serve

  • 4 burger buns
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 green cabbage leaf - the type that you'd add to a stir fry
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • Salt


  • Pre-heat your oven to 220ºC/200ºC fan.
  • Place all of the burger ingredients into a large bowl and using your hands, mix them together until all of the liquid has been absorbed by the meat.
  • Divide the mixture into 4 and using your hands form them into 4 burgers. Note - the burgers will shrink inwards and puff up a little in the oven so I'd suggest making them a little flatter and wider than you eventually want them to end up.
  • Put the 4 burgers on a wire rack and place the rack onto a baking tray. Place into the oven and cook for about 14 minutes until the burgers are cooked through.
  • While the burgers are cooking prepare your salad. Grate the carrot and put it into a bowl. Thinly slice the spring onions (both the white and green parts) and the cabbage and add it to the bowl. Add the sesame seeds. Season with a little salt and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Once the burgers have finished cooking, remove them from the oven and place into a burger bun. Top with some of the salad and serve.


I've included the method to cook these in the oven as I find it the easiest way to cook them. They can also be fried (over a medium heat for about 6 minutes on each side), grilled (6-7 minutes on each side) or barbecued (6-7 minutes on each side). When frying them the sugar can cause the outside to go quite dark but this doesn't impact the flavour.
I've served them in buns with shredded vegetables. If you like you can add a little mayonnaise or some additional teriyaki sauce.
