Prep/Total Time: 25 min.


7 burgers

With water chestnuts, these patties have a fun crunch. Top them with additional teriyaki sauce for a flavorful alternative to ketchup—Barb Schutz, Pandora, Ohio


  • 1 can (8 ounces) water chestnuts, drained and chopped
  • 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 7 hamburger buns, split
  • 14 tomato slices
  • 7 lettuce leaves


  1. In a large bowl, combine the water chestnuts, teriyaki sauce, onions, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix just until combined. Shape into seven 1/2-in.-thick patties.
  2. Prepare the grill for indirect heat. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink and a thermometer reads 160°. Serve on buns with tomato and lettuce.
