When I plan a casual country cookout, I invite these dressed-up burgers to the table. Bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese toppings and a touch of sauce really boost the flavor. And the mildly seasoned meat turns out nice and juicy.

Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 teaspoon lime juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cola, divided
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

Directions

In a small skillet, saute the garlic in oil for 1 minute or until golden. Stir in 1/3 cup lime juice, 1 tablespoon cola, orange juice and soy sauce. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 5-6 minutes or until slightly thickened. Set aside for basting.
Crumble beef into a large bowl. Sprinkle with garlic powder and remaining lime juice and cola; mix well. Shape into four 3/4-in.-thick patties.

"This recipe uses unusual ingredients to create a fantastic tasting burger! Orange juice, garlic, soy sauce and cola make these burgers extremely moist and full of flavor in every bite. I also mix an egg into the beef to help them hold together better. Fantastic! Try for yourself and see, you won't be disappointed!"
