  1. Cook and stir sesame seeds in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat until they are fragrant and toasted, about 2 minutes. Transfer immediately into a small bowl and let cool.
  2. Mix ground beef, green onions, roasted garlic, mirin wine, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, black pepper, salt, and toasted sesame seeds together in a large bowl until thoroughly combined. Divide the meat mixture into 8 portions and form each portion into a large beef patty about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Pan-fry the burgers in a large skillet over medium-low heat until browned and the meat is no longer pink inside, about 8 minutes per side. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the burgers should read at least 145 degrees F (65 degrees F).

  • Cook's Note:
  • Mirin is a sweet rice cooking wine that can usually be found in the Asian foods section of the supermarket. But if you can't get it, sweet cooking sake or sweet vermouth can be substituted, although these will not taste as authentic.

Burgers were delicious; my family can't wait for more!


Wow. Love this it came out great . Whole family loved it. I used thinly sliced venison for meat, it is now family favorite.

Wonderful recipe- I substituted a quarter cup of sake and two tablespoons of white sugar for the mirin. I also scrambled the ground beef mixture into medium chunks which we ate wrapped in lettuce leaves.
