This scrumptious Garlic Gourmet Burger recipe from Kikkoman can be cooked on the barbecue or on the hob. Either way, it’s sure to be delicious!

Serves: 4

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil and butter in a saucepan. Add the sliced onions and sugar and cook on a low heat for 30 minutes. Stir often until the onions are soft and caramelised. Then season.
  2. While the onions are cooking, mix the mince with the herbs and season. Form into 4 burgers.
  3. Place the burgers on a hot barbecue. Or, if cooking indoors, add remaining oil to a frying-pan and cook the burgers for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
  4. Reduce the heat and add Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce with Roasted Garlic. Continue to cook and baste the burgers for a further 2 minutes.
  5. Place shredded radicchio on burger bun base. Add the burger, a spoonful of leftover sauce from the pan, a quarter of the caramelised onions and then top with avocado slices before placing the bun lid on.
