Bulgogi Burger Recipe

2 comments

At our house we often add Korean flavors to American recipes, this Bulgogi burger is a prime example. The key to this great tasting Bulgogi Burger is to marinate the lean ground beef with a simple bulgogi sauce /marinade.

For the bulgogi ground beef:
1 pound of lean ground beef I used 93% lean to 7% fat ground beef.
1/4 cup soy sauce

Adding soy sauce to lean ground beef

1 Tablespoon of raw sugar
1 teaspoon of roasted sesame oil
3 chopped green onions
1 Tablespoon freshly chopped garlic
All of this gets mixed and formed into patties.

Add all the ingredients and mix

Cook the patties on medium to desired temp.

Putting the burgers on the griddle

To the griddle add 1/4 cup sliced onion
1/2 cup chopped kimchi
Mix and cook.

Kimchi onions and burgers on the griddle

To make the burgers you can do protein style or put them in a bun.

Use lettuce, gochujang ketchup, the cooked kimchi and your burger patties.

I prefer them wrapped in lettuce since that is more like eating bulgogi.

Build the bulgogi burger on lettuce.

Oh yum! Bulgogi burger. That is such a great idea! And healthy too since you’re using lean beef and lettuce to wrap. I’ll try this for our next barbecue session. Thanks for sharing!
