Reviews for Grilled Beef Burgers
"I didn't have hamburger so used ground turkey instead. The meat mixture was too loose to make on a grill so I made them in a grill pan on top of the stove. They turned out okay. I didn't really care for the flavor. I might try this again and use hamburger to see if they come out differently but with all of the other recipes out there for burgers, I probably won't make it again."
"The flavor is excellent, the meat tender, melts in your mouth. Will make this recipe over and over again."
"I followed this to a tee. The burgers stuck to the grill and came off in chunks. They didn't taste like a hamburger at all and had a weird consistency. They were edible but thats about it."
"Is there any way to loose some of the fat and calories?"
