This week I have some quick dinners planned and since we had an unusually warm day last Saturday (70 degrees!), it made me want a burger on the grill. We didn't actually get to grill on Saturday because we were out and about taking advantage of the warm weather - getting Christmas lights down, going to the zoo and running other errands. Unfortunately the cold weather is back, so these burgers were made inside. They still turned out great and made a very easy and quick dinner served with a Dole Asian salad kit.
1 pound ground round (I used the lean 96/4 ground beef and it kept together very well. Only flip once!)
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Divide beef mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.
Place patties on grill rack; grill 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
