Recipe for family meals :

Teriyaki Burgers
 

This is one of the recipes from Mrs Susie. If you want to find out more about her have a look at her biography page which she has written. Mrs Susie specialises in Oriental cooking. An important first step in Oriental cooking (which I think is important) is at the end of each recipe.

To find out the basic requirements for making Teriyaki have a look at 'Japanese Teriyaki' under Tips,etc.

"The word, teriyaki is a combination of two Japanese words "teri" and "yaki." Teri means luster and yaki means grill or broil".

Ingredients

1/4 c. chopped onion
2 lb. ground beef
1/4 tsp. pepper

Sauce:
2 cloves garlic, juiced
1/2 c shoyu
2 tsp. shredded fresh ginger, juiced
2 - 3 tbs. sugar
1/4 c. orange juice

Method

  • Mix the meat mixture and then add sauce.
  • Let stand for 30 minutes
  • Make into patties and broil or pan fry until done

Did somebody say McDonald's . . . NAH!!!

To prepare ahead of time:
This sauce can be completed in the morning, left at room temperature, then added to the meat half an hour before cooking.

It is very ono (delicious) cold the next day.

Enjoy!
Mrs Susie

"I have studied oriental cooking quite a bit and the one thing that makes it different from other styles of cooking is: it is 90% preparation and 10% cooking. It is very important to have everything in the recipe already prepared for cooking before you start cooking.

I take a plate and cut up my ingredients as called for in the recipe and place them on different parts of the plate. Only then do I think about cooking. I will put my oil in the pan and, as the things are called for in the recipe, I will sweep them into whatever pan I am cooking with, cook for as long as called for, then add the next ingredient.

Oriental cooking happens so fast. To stop and cut up the garlic (for example) if I had the ginger cooking in the pan would result in burnt ginger before the garlic is finished.

When I am cooking a ten or fifteen course dinner you should see my kitchen. I have plates all over and all my sauces mixed in bowls and everything is ready to cook before I start cooking. This is the right way to do it and necessary to have a well-timed dinner.

Another thing, get yourself a good cleaver that will not rust. You will be surprised how much you will use this for all your cooking, not just oriental cooking. Do yourself a favor and get a good one. I think I paid $20 for mine but again that was 20 years ago".
