Burger time! You’ll be hailed as a “Grill Master” extraordinaire when you use this flavorful best grilled hamburger marinade before popping your burgers on the grill. The smoky, sweet, yet slightly spicy and tangy taste of these burgers is sure to be a hit at your next barbecue and turn it into a gourmet experience! You’re gonna love these burgers!
Our best grilled hamburger marinade is a quick-to-mix blend of Worcestershire sauce, red wine vinegar, brown sugar, fresh garlic, olive oil, onion, liquid smoke, salt and pepper. You gently blend the ingredients into the meat and let them work their magic! Be careful not to handle the meat too much so it doesn’t get tough.
Vinegar, brown sugar and oil all contribute tenderness and flavor to the meat. The other ingredients such as Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, onion and garlic boost flavor. Worcestershire sauce is a mixture of vinegar, molasses, anchovies, and other seasonings.
After forming the ground beef into round patties, flatten them so they’re bigger than the buns. Next, make an indentation in the center of each burger. This will help burgers so they don’t bulge in the center. Cover patties and let marinade in refrigerator for at least one hour. You should grill over high heat to quickly sear outside of burger and seal in juices. Cook 3-4 minutes per side.
- Use 80% lean ground beef (there will be less shrinkage)
- Marinade patties in refrigerator not at room temperature
- Try not to move the burger on the grill while cooking
- Toast bun on grill – you don’t want a soggy bun
- Add cheese 30 seconds before taking burger off grill
