I love my burgers and usually have one every Saturday night - Well I had some Kimchi (Spicy Korean Kimchi Spicy Korean Kimchi) left over and thought it would taste good on a burger so I made up this recipe. You may buy kimchi bulk in Oriental markets. buy it canned or make your own.. I like my recipe because it stays crisp. I have said 6 oz patties if you want smaller meat portions make more patties from the recipe. Your garnish is optional, I use them all but I recommend the raw onion as a must. You may also BBQ the patties but be careful that they don't break apart, they are a moist pattie
