:thumb: , I created this burger and found an amazing responce for if, but this is the first I,ve posted anywhere, so please be nice. I cook this at least once or Rwice a month not by choice but rather by demand.
When working on dinner one night my 8 year old daughter (now 12) was helping me name this burger, I ask her for the first that came to mind and she yelled out "MOKAZOO" and so is was named

1 lbs Ground Beef
1/2 pk Club cracker (these are 3 pks in a box)
1/2 White onion (chopped)
1 Small tomato (chopped)
1/8 cup Soy Sauce
1/4 cup Teri Sauce (Yashidas Gourmet Sauce)
1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce (or 3-4 bots,lol)
1/4 slice of Red Pepper (chopped and Opional)

1/2 tsp Rosemary Herb
1/2 tsp Dill Seasoning
1/4 tsp Salt (opional or to taste)
1/4 tsp Fresh Ground Pepper


First combine Ground beef, Soy, Teri, Worcestershirer, Rosemary, Dill and set aside for 5 minutes and get all other ingredients ready.
Slice Tomato and Onion into quarters and if you have chopper, chop each and add to meat mixture.

Put club crackers in a large ziplok bag and shash/roll into rough powder.
(used to firm up meat)

Now Combine all remaining ingredients and thoughtly mix in by hand ensuring meat mixture is consistant, I only call out 1/2 pk of Club Cracker but you may need more.


Cooking:

Form meat into patties. (can also cook in Meat Lof Style)

For grilling; Cook at med heat to ensure them from not burning, Start cooking on main grill the move to upper grill til completely cooked. (approx 30-45 mins)

Slow cook is required, DO NOT squeeze out any juices

Serving opions,

(my Favorate, when home)
I service with my special Mash Potatos and Vegtables of your choice

(This is for picnics and camping)
Serve on a grilled bun with a slice a pineapple, red onion, mayo, katsup etc.
the pineapple really make all flavors


Please enjoy and Please write me back
Thanks,

from soy sauce to red pepper, you don't have units of the measurement.

I used to do something similar when i was first cooking in my late teens. They were well liked. Haven't made that in a long time now. Brings back memories.

Seems to be something of a grilled meatloaf. While I don't think I'd make it myself, as a dish it represents a definite improvement over your previous postings. Wish your poll had more options.

I agree with BDL, it seems more like a meatloaf. As a meatloaf it looks pretty tasty, but I, personally, would not care for this if served to me as a "burger." I am not a fan of adding lots of things to the meat of my burgers, I'd rather top them with something. The cracker would act as a filler and give more of a meatloaf texture than a burger texture. But again, I would be willing to try this a meatloaf recipe. Just my 2 cents.

I agree w/the others, don't mess w/burgers.;):lol: BUT, what you have would be great as meatloaf, bacon wrapped meatballs, or a version of a fattie. A fattie in this case is usually pork sausage rolled out to bout 1/4" then filled w/cheese, meats, veg's, etc; then rolled up and wrapped in bacon.

Your burger meat would be great rolled out and stuffed w/a pepper jack cheese or cheddar and add some jalapenos or something.

I like the recipe, similar to what alot of people use. Another idea to add some flavor is to add some pork sausage to your list.

Thanks for post'n the recipe, will have to give it a go sometime!:thumb:

It does sound tasty...and you're right, cooking for a young family is hectic and frantic and if the pattie is tasty and goes down well - make it! :)

With the name, well, it originally brought to mind zebras and camels....hippos, elephants, babboons. Take no offence! It does sound catchy tho, and made me read your post :)

Thank you for posting ....DC

P.S. Is Teri sauce = Teriyaki sauce?
And I have no idea what Graham crackers are - assuming they are like a plain water cracker, that you use with dips and crushed up for crumbing. The joys of product translation across the world...

This as stated above is not a hamburger . Call it meat loaf or a form of salisbury steak. The cooking time 30 -45 minutes in a patty form is totally impossible.The thing will be shoe leather at the least. Sometime I wonder if you ever proof or try your recipes, For the sake of the many students who use this site I hope you do. Also what is a quarter slice of red pepper ??? I am not trying to dissuade you but check out your sources and perfect your formulas and amounts before posting keeping in mind you are dealin with pro's as well as novices here.

Yes, Teri is, Teriyaki Sauce the brand I use is "Yashidas Original Gourmet Sauce" and there is no mention of Graham crackers in the recipe, I use Club Crackers cruched up but you can use regular white cracker or Bread crumbs, Thanks for the reply
