I recently took a cooking class and made a very flavorful sauce that had a sweet and salty flavor that can only be described as umami. I decided to try to take the sauce to the next level by making it marinade for a cheeseburger. With the cheese and meat flavors, this recipe hits all the flavors of the tongue: sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and most definitely, umami.
Recently, I took a shopping trip to Walmart to search for items to complete the ultimate umami cheeseburger. I was able to get everything on my shopping list. The prices were unbelievable. I had a blast exploring the the sauces and cheese isles.
Cheeseburger Marinade Ingredients
6 tablespoons dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons Miso Paste
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon molasses
2 tablespoons spicy rice wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon sriracha
1 cup ketchup
6 sesame hamburger buns
6 Kraft Slices
2 pounds ground lean ground chuck
1 red onion
1 large tomato
Spicy Mayo Ingredients
6 tablespoons Kraft Light Mayo
3 teaspoons sriracha
1. Whisk together 6 tablespoons dark soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, 3 tablespoons Miso Paste, 1 tablespoon honey, 2 teaspoons brown sugar, 1 teaspoon molasses, 2 tablespoons of spicy rice wine vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, 1/2 teaspoon sriracha.
6. Lay the hamburger on a rack or the oven rack in the center of the oven.
7. Put below the rack with the burgers with a pan or cookie sheet lined with foil and a layer of salt to soak up the fat drippings.
8. Mix together 6 tablespoons Kraft Light Mayo and 3 teaspoons sriracha to make spicy mayo.
10. After the timer sounds, put Kraft Singles on each hamburger. I took my marinade to the next level with the addition of American Cheese Kraft Singles. They melt so wonderfully and make the cheeseburger a picture of perfection.
