Cinnamon Burger

Updated on August 5, 2012

After making these for my son and nephew, I am not allowed to make "regular" burgers anymore. Cinnamon is what makes this recipe fantastic, and I use cinnamon for other beef and pork recipes as well. The main reason I like to use cinnamon is for its health benefits. Once digested, the cinnamon kills bacteria and such in your body. It is also a wonderful healing agent.

As mentioned in the instructions, for best results in flavor, do not press down on the burger patties to speed up cooking time. All of the juices that escape out while pressing down on the patties is all flavor being missed out on.

This same recipe can be used to make meatballs as well, just add a bit of sausage to it.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min

  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Coarse Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Onion Powder
  • 2 tablespoons Oregano
  • 2 tablespoons Fennel seeds
  • 3 tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 cup Hoisin Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce

  1. Thaw out ground beef and put into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add salt, pepper, oregano, fennel seeds, cinnamon, garlic powder, and onion powder, and mix well.
  3. Pull off a small hand full of ground beef and roll it into a ball. With the ball in the palm of one hand, use the fingers of the free hand and "slap" the ball to flatten it out. This method helps to keep the patty in tact without it breaking apart around the edges versus just smashing it flat with both hands.
  4. Heat up a skillet and place the patties in the skillet. Cook on one side for 5 to 7 minutes over medium-high heat. After 5 to 7 minutes, flip the patties over to cook the other side. Try not to press down on the patties as this will cause the flavorful juices to escape the patties. Once the patties are finished cooking, set them on a plate to rest.
  5. While the burgers are resting, the sauce can be prepared.
  6. To prepare the sauce, pour the Hoisin sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and Teriyaki sauce into a small mixing bowl and mix well.
  7. Once the burgers are rested, you can begin building your burgers.

      If you are looking for a "smoky" flavor without breaking out the outdoor grill and dealing with the labor of cleaning it afterward, you can try adding a little bit of Liquid Smoke in the meat, or in the sauce.

      I will try this recipe. I am looking for Burger recipe that would make the burger with a smoky kind of flavor. Do you think the cinnamon would give that smoky flavor?

      Sound great! I've done cinnamon burgers before, but not anything like this at all. Can't wait to try it! However, most people like their cheese melted onto their burger. Just something to consider. Thanks for the recipe!

      These look delicious. As I don't eat beef I guess could I use goat meat instead?

      Voted up.

      Lisa, I wish I had a crock pot hehe. For now, I use a 12 qt stock pot for my broiling. I'm so used to cooking stove top, that it took me a couple of months to learn how to basically use my microwave when I first bought it.

      Wow, these sound fantastic! I make a brisket in the crock pot with Hoisin and five spice (which has cinnamon). However, I never thought of using it for hamburgers. I can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing, voted up!

      I'm still playing around with the amounts of ingredients with this recipe, so if you try it, you may have to play around with the ingredients amounts as well....
