  • 2 pounds ground sirloin beef

  2. Mix ground beef with garlic powder and 1/2 cup teriyaki marinade in large bowl until well blended. Shape into 8 patties. Stir together remaining 1/4 cup teriyaki marinade with mayonnaise in small bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
  3. Grill patties on one side until juices begin to appear on surface. Turn patties over. Cook about 4 minutes longer or until done. Grill pineapple slices until warm and slightly browned.

Cooking Tips

  • For a healthier option, try substituting ground turkey or chicken for ground sirloin beef.
  • Chop bell peppers, eggplant, mushrooms, onions, and zucchini into pieces, soak in water for 30 minutes, pat them dry and spray with no-stick cooking spray. Throw them on the grill until they are at your desired level of tenderness and you will have a delicious, healthy side dish to go with your burgers.
  • Spray your grilling tools with no-stick cooking spray to keep them clean. This quick grilling tip can save you a lot of time.
  • Don’t let canned fruits or vegetables scare you. If you’re in a rush, using precut, frozen or canned fruits and vegetables in your meal-prep routines eliminates time spent cleaning, chopping, dicing, and peeling.

  6. I don’t eat meat but I will cook it. I think this sounds like a really fun recipe to make for a summer dinner party or late lunch. I love Asian flavors.
