The kimchi gives it that traditional pickle-y component in a fiery Korean package, while using a mild and creamy cheese goes perfectly with the piquancy of the other ingredients.

Korean-Style Burgers

  • 1/4 Cup gochujang (red chili paste)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons mirin (japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 300 Grams pork use ground pork
  • 300 Grams Beef use ground beef
  • 1/2 white onion thinly sliced
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tablespoons Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tablespoons Flour
  • 3 tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ginger grated
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • black pepper
  • vegetable oil
  • 5-6 Burger buns
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups store-bought kimchi chopped
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese sliced


  • Make the glaze: mix all ingredients together until everything is fully incorporated. Set aside.
  • Mix together ground pork, beef, white and green onions, egg, flour, soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, sesame seeds, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  • Shape the mixture into 5 or 6 patties.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium to high heat. When the pan is hot, add just enough vegetable oil to coat the pan in a thin layer. When the oil is hot, add the patties. Do not overcrowd the pan. Do this in batches, if necessary.
  • Fry the first side of the patty for about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Flip patties and baste the cooked side with the glaze. Fry the second side for another 5 minutes or until that side is also golden brown. Flip patty again and baste the second side. Flip again and cook until fully cooked or juices run clear. This should only take a minute or two more.
  • Toast the burger buns.
  • To assemble, place one burger patty in each bun. Top each patty with shredded kimchi and a few slices of cream cheese. Serve with extra kimchi and chips on the side.
