We all love burgers. We also like to try new flavors or variations of it, don’t we? Recently, we posted a recipe of a turtle burger and you all loved it. Just before that, we also taught you how to prepare a Hawaiian burger and you geys went crazy over it too. Why don’t we go the extra mile (or miles), go internationally, and give you an Asian flavors-inspired burger? Here we give you a simple Korean BBQ Burger recipe. Once you try it, you’ll be saying “Saranghae!” to this burger.
Where to buy Asian Ingredients
Some ingredients might be new to you like Kimchi Slaw or Chili Garlic Mayo. Don’t worry, these ingredients are most likely available in your local Asian supermarket. If not, you can try looking up for recipes to these ingredients or better yet, improvise to your liking.
- 1 ½ pounds ground beef (80/20 fat ratio)
- 2 cloves garlic, pressed through garlic press
- ½ teaspoon grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 4 brioche hamburger buns, toasted
- Korean BBQ Sauce
- Chili Garlic Mayo
- Kimchi Slaw
How to Prepare:
Add the ground beef into a large bowl, and very lightly break it up. Add to it all of the rest of the ingredients including the black pepper, and very carefully combine the seasonings into the meat.
Portion out 4 patties and stack them with parchment paper between each patty. Place them first into the fridge for at least an hour, to allow the flavors to meld and the meat to relax.
When ready to sear, take the patties out and allow them to come to room temp for a few minutes; place a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once it gets hot, drizzle in a touch of vegetable oil and sear a couple of burgers at a time for about 3-4 minutes per side.
Glaze each burger patty in the Korean BBQ Sauce, just before building your burger.
Spread some of the Chili Garlic Mayo on the toasted buns, and add a glazed patty to the bottom bun; add some of the Kimchi Slaw on top of the patty, top with the other bun.
