Hollow Suppers

I think Mom had a million ways to use ground beef.  In the days when it was cheap, she could really stretch a food budget with it.  I thought you'd enjoy one of our favorites.
Oriental Steaks
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
4 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Mix ground beef with salt, pepper, garlic, 1 teaspoon of soy sauce, ginger, and lemon rind.  Shape into patties - one pound should make 4 patties about an inch thick.  Mix the rest of the soy sauce with the lemon juice. Brush part of the sauce mixture over the patties, reserving some for basting.  Broil, basting and turning patties half-way cooking (about 7-8 minutes each side) until well done.
