For a change of pace, I'll use this marinade to give hamburgers a unique Asian-inspired flavor.


  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 hamburger buns, split
  • Leaf lettuce and tomato slices, optional


  1. Shape meat into six patties; place in a shallow dish. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, soy sauce, ketchup, vinegar, garlic and pepper. Set aside 1/4 cup for basting; cover and refrigerate. Pour remaining marinade over the patties. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  2. Grill burgers, uncovered, over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear, basting occasionally with reserved marinade.
  3. Serve on hamburger buns with lettuce leaves and tomato slices if desired.
