I’ve been jonesing a good teriyaki burger for a few weeks and looking for a chance to tweak the teriyaki pineapple marinade in Flavorize. This was a win-win. The easy route would have been to just mix up the sauce, marinate the ground chuck, and slap it all together. It would also be, well, normal.
Allspice Cafe makes a tasty olive tapenade that goes great in ground beef for burgers. This version is a personal favorite I came up with that you may want to try for yourself. Overall, the spicy kick is on the mild side, which really lets you taste the rest of the tapenade.
