About the Recipe
For the hamburgers:
1 lb ground beef (80% lean, 20% fat)
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 hamburger buns, toasted
1 cup chopped kimchi, drained
Lettuce leaves, for serving
Sliced red onion, for serving
For the gochujang mayo:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons gochujang (Korean red pepper paste)
1 tablespoon lime juice
Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
Divide the ground beef into 4 equal portions and gently shape them into burger patties. Season both sides of the patties with salt and pepper.
Grill the patties for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until cooked to your desired level of doneness.
While the patties are cooking, prepare the gochujang mayo by whisking together mayonnaise, gochujang, and lime juice in a small bowl. Set aside.
Assemble the burgers: Spread a layer of gochujang mayo on the bottom half of each toasted bun. Top with lettuce leaves, a grilled beef patty, chopped kimchi, and sliced red onion. Add the top half of the bun and serve immediately. Enjoy your Kimchi Hamburger!
