Step 1

In a small saucepan bring the Mirin, soy sauce, maple syrup, brown sugar, ginger & lemon juice to a boil. Mix the cornstarch & water together to dissolve the cornstarch. Stir into the boiling mixture. Let boil for about 15 minutes until thickened. Set aside to cool. Once cooled mix 1 T of the glaze into the mayonnaise & set aside to top the burgers.

Mix all the burger ingredients together with your hands & form into two patties. Grill over medium-high heat for 3 minutes per side. Brush with glaze & flip. Grill 2 more minutes. Brush with glaze & flip again cooking 2 more minutes.

When the burgers have about 5 minutes left put the onions on the grill & brush them with the glaze. Grill until they are soft.

Brush both the burgers & onions with glaze once more before serving.

Serve the burgers on rolls (sesame would be good) topped with the mayonnaise & lettuce. The onions can be eaten on the side or on the burgers.
