Marinated Burgers

by Laura

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!

Marinated Burgers


    • 2 lb ground beef, 80% to 20% fat ratio
    • Marinade:
    • 2 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
    • 1/2 tsp dried mustard
    • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
    • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
    • 1 tsp seasoned salt, or your favorite steak seasoning (I used McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning)
    • cracked black pepper
    • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce


    1. Divide the ground beef into 6 equal portions. Shape into 5-inch wide patties with place a deep indentation in the middle. Place in a large shallow, glass baking pan.
    2. In a bowl, add all marinade ingredients and whisk together. Pour over the burger patties.
    3. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or longer if desired, turning at least once.
    4. Preheat grill to 325-350 degrees. Oil the grill grates by getting vegetable oil on a paper towel and using tongs to coat the grilling surface thoroughly.
    5. Cook the burgers until until they are cooked through, about 7 minutes on each side.
    6. Allow the hamburgers to rest 5 minutes before serving. Serves 6.
