Marinated Burgers

When grilling season hits, part of what I grill is marinated, specifically steak and chicken. I do have the occasional shrimp that I marinate. However, I have never thought about having marinated burgers until now.

You just need to have a little forethought so you can give those burger patties time to marinate. They just need an hour to soak in the goodness. The marinade give the burger more of a steak flavor.

My middle son is a self proclaimed burger connoisseur. No matter where we go out to eat, he will usually order a burger from the menu. When he had this burger for the first time, he said it was the best burger he has ever had, so that is saying quite a bit. I will probably use this recipe quite frequently during the rest of the summer when we have burgers. These patties are nice and juicy and FULL of flavor!
