Cooking Korean food is a passion of mine. I don't know how traditional this is but it has the taste of bulgoki in a burger. Very flavorful!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 4 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons green onions, chopped
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- black pepper
- Combine all ingredients. Form into four balls and flatten into patties. Broil, grill or pan-fry until done.
- Serve as is or on a bun.
These were so easy and so good. I didn't have fresh garlic, so I used garlic powder. I also used 1 teaspoon of red chili flakes to kick up the spice. I shaped these into more of a croquette and baked them at 425 for about 20 minutes. I served with the recipe for Korean Dipping Sauce (found on this site),which I warmed up and used as a gravy. Also served rice and salad. Made a nice dinner.
DEE-LISH!!! What a flavor sensation!! Ours were served on toasted kaiser rolls topped with recipe #370518 , chopped romaine and slices of vidalia onions. On the side was recipe #72774 . The flavor was knock out..I too, was taken aback by the sugar, but it works. For those of you who chose to grill this, they seemed to flare up a bit because of the added sesame oil I believe. Instead of pepper flakes, I used sambal olek as an alternative. This is a great little burger and I cannot wait to have them again!
I didn't make this into patties but served it over rice. What an easy and tasty meal. I want to make it again and wrap with eggroll wrappers. This would make a good appetizer. Thanks Mika G.
