Simple Paleo Teriyaki Burgers

paleonewbie.com teriyaki burger recipe

Looking for a little something different for dinner tonight? Well grill fans, you came to the right place…

Today we’re serving up a fire-cooked paleo burger with a side of awesome! Awesome paleo teriyaki sauce that is!

These burgers are so easy, I feel guilty calling this a recipe, but they’re so tasty it would be just wrong not to share.

These can be made with any ground meat you like – beef or poultry. We used grass-fed beef and the result was one of the best burgers I’ve enjoyed in a long time.

And with a little extra teriyaki sauce ladled on top right before you dig in, I can guarantee you a flavor-packed burger and a very happy tummy. 

Here’s the link to my Soy-free Paleo Teriyaki Sauce – it will take you just minutes to whip this up for the burger recipe below.

We grilled up some fresh pineapple and veggie kabobs with our meal, But you could serve these teriyaki burgers with just about anything like such as sweet potato fries and you’d be golden.

You don’t have to grill these outdoors by the way. You can just as easily use an indoor stove top or electric grill and they’ll turn out great!

Serve these up to your family soon. Everyone’s going to love these bad boy burgers!

    The instructions don’t say what to do with the green onions other than to chop them. Do you mix them in with the ground beef?

    This teriyaki sauce is the best. Last time I made it, I had enough leftover sauce to use in stir-fry and grilled chicken breast. So good.

      Sorry Tracy, Yes, just mix them in with the beef. 🙂 I’m glad you like the sauce, it’s one of my favorites. I use it on everything! Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Do you mix the chopped green onions in with the ground meat…? not clear what you do with the onions after step 1. Assuming yes – but double checking.
