Backyard Burgers

Spring is officially here, and there’s no better way to celebrate the warmer temps than with a backyard barbecue.  Hamburgers are a popular choice for the grill, but a truly delicious burger is more than just a ground beef patty. It’s all about the marinade! The marinade I use is very popular–but really very easy.  People always comment on how good the burgers are when we serve them, and I personally LOVE these burgers. They’re so tasty, I have to stop myself from having two!

Here’s what I use:

hamburger1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 cup Soy Sauce
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 Tbs Black Pepper
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 tsp Yellow Mustard
1 Tbs Brown Sugar

Here’s what I do:

Make the hamburger patties! Good beef makes the best burgers, and I really prefer to keep things as fresh and local as possible, so I really like Bethel Trail Farms ground beef.  Arrange the patties in a glass container–like a 9×12 casserole dish.

Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a bowl. Dump the marinade over the burgers. Cover tightly with plastic wrap & let them sit for an hour. Then, head out to the grill!

I think my marinated corn salad is an excellent accompaniment to these burgers.
