  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1. Stir together first 6 ingredients. Reserve 3 Tbsp. mixture; cover and chill. Pour remaining soy sauce mixture into a shallow pan or baking dish.

2. Shape beef into 8 (1/2-inch-thick) patties; place in a single layer in soy sauce mixture in pan, turning to coat. Cover and chill 4 hours.
