This is my husband and mines favorite burger from Red Robin, so of course we moved to an area where there isn’t a restaurant location. So with a lot of trial and even more error, I have finally created a recipe that is close enough to call it a copycat. I hope that you all will enjoy this burger as much as my family did.
1 lb. Lean Ground Beef (I used 1.3 lbs.)
3/4 C Teriyaki Sauce ( I used our version https://junecleaver21stcenturystyle.wordpress.com/2015/04/08/homemade-teriyaki-sauce/ )
1/2 tsp. Seasoning Salt
1/4 tsp. Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1/4-1/3 C Plain Bread Crumb (amount depends on how fatty the meat is)
4 Pineapple Rings
1/2 C Teriyaki Sauce
Teriyaki Sauce for topping
-Mix 3/4 C Teriyaki Sauce, salt, pepper and hamburger meat together in bowl. Allow to sit at least 2 hours to overnight.
-Marinate pineapple rings in 1/4 C Teriyaki Sauce, again best over night.
-Form marinated meat into patties. Grill over medium high heat until desired doneness. Grill pineapple rings about 3-5 minutes, you just want to lightly sear the teriyaki sauce to the outside of the rings.
-Top each patty with 1/2T Teriyaki Sauce, pineapple rings, tomato, onion and lettuce. Enjoy!
My husband swears that this burger, even at the restaurant isn’t as good without dipping it in Ranch dressing.
