Building a Better Burger!
What are the basics of a knockout burger? High-quality meat, Kikkoman Soy Sauce and heat: it’s that simple! That’s thanks to the Maillard reaction--the scientific name for what happens when you combine protein (from meat) and sugar (from Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade) with the flame of the grill (or even the stovetop). Translated into burger terms, that means a caramelized, charred crust that’s makes a well-cooked burger irresistible. Taste the Maillard advantage for yourself with these Sizzling Teriyaki Burgers, which have all the right ingredients for grilled goodness. Make those burgers even better with some additional must-have picnic items
- Easy frozen ground beef patties and Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce make for foolproof grilling in these Sizzling Teriyaki Burgers. The sauce does double duty as a marinade and as a finishing glaze, giving the burgers a great taste and a lustrous glaze—after all, “teriyaki” means “glaze-broiled” for a reason!
- At your next cookout, think outside the (ketchup) bottle with this All-American All-in-One Picnic Sauce. It wakes up the richness of regular mayonnaise with mustard, chives and Kikkoman Soy Sauce. Even better, the umami-packed spread plays well with everything from burgers to coleslaw. It’s one “secret sauce” you won’t want to keep bottled up.
- Even a devoted burger fan needs a little greenery to go with the ground meat. This Pagoda Salad brightens the color—and flavor—palate of any picnic. The dressing gets its mild, well-balanced acidity and hint of sweetness from Kikkoman Rice Vinegar, while Kikkoman Soy Sauce boosts its savory quotient.
