Bulgogi Burgers

Mini burger patties loaded with Korean flavors and topped with kimchi.

Ingredients

1/4
cup sesame seeds
3
tablespoons soy sauce
2
tablespoons gochujang
2
tablespoons sesame oil
5
scallions, chopped
5
cloves garlic, grated
2
tablespoons grated ginger
2
tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1
tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2
lb ground beef
12
mini burger/slider buns
14
oz kimchi

Directions

  • 1 Add all ingredients except beef, buns and kimchi to a small bowl and combine to form a paste. Mix the paste with the ground beef to season it. Use immediately, or cover and refrigerate beef 1-2 days to allow flavors to meld.

This marinade comes together in 5 minutes. Then just mix in the meat!

I cooked these burgers to medium well. Because of the sugars in the marinade, the edges can burn easily, so keep your eye on them.

These don’t need cheese, but if you insist, I would use American.

A good friend who was over for dinner called these a delicious surprise, and I think that was a good way to describe them. The meat was super savory with a little hint of sweet and sour, and the kimchi added freshness and a little spice. I served them with some sweet potato tortilla chips, which worked great. Enjoy!
