Korean BBQ Burger
A burger that incorporates Korean flavors like gochujang, soy sauce, and mirin. It is then topped with kimchi, lettuce, tomatoes, and red onions.
Servings: 6 people
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 4 tsp gochujang
- 4 tsp soy sauce
- 4 tsp mirin
- 6 hamburger buns
- 6 slices white cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup kimchi
- 1 head butter lettuce
- 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
- 2 tomatoes thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp sriracha mayo
First prep your toppings. Slice your cheese, red onion, and tomatoes. Set aside.
Combine all the ingredients for the burger patties into a medium-sized bowl. Mix with your hands until just combined. Be careful not to over mix.
Divide the burger meat into 6 equal pieces. Roll a piece into a ball and then flatten it between your palms. Then work with your hands around the patty to create a circular disk that is 4 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch thick. The center of the patty should be slightly thinner than the edges. Repeat this process for all the pieces of burger meat.
Now you’re ready to cook the burger patties! You can use a cast iron skillet, grill pan, or outdoor grill. Cook the burger patties over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side. When you have 30 seconds left in cooking time, place a piece of cheese on top of the burger patties to melt. The burger is done when the internal temperature is 160 degrees F.
After cooking your burgers, grill the inside of your burger buns until they are a nice golden brown color. Set aside.
Now it’s time to assemble your burgers! Smear some sriracha mayo on the bottom half of the burger bun. Place lettuce and tomato slices on top. Add the burger patty, some kimchi, and red onions. Smear sriracha mayo on the top half of the burger bun and top off the burger.
Serve with fries or potato chips of choice.
