Recipe – Chinese Burger Patties

As promised, here is the recipe for Chinese Burger Patties.  Grocery prices in our part of the country have risen significantly in the last three weeks or so.  Now, more than ever, finding new ways to dress up plain ol’ hamburger is a blessing.  These are quick and easy to make, and are juicy and flavorful after cooking.  You may, of course, increase this recipe for the size of your own family.

Chinese Burger Patties

1 lb. ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon peel
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon lemon juice

Mix the salt, lemon peel, 1 teaspoon soy sauce and ground ginger into the ground beef. Work it in well, but take care not to overwork the ground beef. Form the mixture into four patties, approximately 3/4″ thick.

Heat broiler. Mix 1 Tablespoon soy sauce and 1 Tablespoon lemon juice in a bowl. Baste the patties with this mixture. Broil patties about 4 inches from heat for six minutes. Turn patties and baste again. Broil patties for six minutes longer, basting again if you have any mixture left. (My patties were done, with no pink remaining, but still juicy at this point. Broil longer if yours are not quite done.)

  • Hi Cheryl,

    Thanks for the recipe. I have notice food prices have jumped here too. Tonight when I went to pick up a few things tomatoes were 4.49 a pound. I have been pouring over seed catalogs getting ready for my container garden.

    Dave mailed Will a little package last week. It should get there soon.

    Have a blessed week.



  • Thanks for all the great recipes you provide on here.  I am going to try this one and the Orange Coffee Cake recipe.  I know what you mean about food prices.  Here in Canada, the cost of living in general does seem to be quite high and food prices are no exception.  I will look forward to trying these new recipes!  

  • I can see I need to visit here more often! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    So sorry about the loss of your friend.  I pray the Lord upholds the family in the days ahead.  God bless you.

  • Thanks for the recipe.  I live in the Central Valley (CA) and have noticed a huge difference in prices.  I have been telling my husband for about a month now that I just cannot seem to get my grocery bill back down and I am buying all the normal things.   He suggested that it might just be who I am feeding (family of 5 with three teenage boys!)  However, I think it must be a little of both… prices and growing (big) boys.

    Thanks for the receipe!!!
