Korean BBQ Burger, One Crazy-Good Little Burger

If you’re feeling a little adventurous and are craving a truly unique burger, then this Korean BBQ Burger with Kimchi Slaw has got your name written all over it!

“Listen lady, why couldn’t you just leave the classic burger well enough alone?” is what I can hear someone asking right about now, under their breath.

And believe me, I’ve gotten those comments in the past on other recipes where someone can’t understand the point of tinkering around with something that’s already “perfection” (in their humble opinion, of course), or isn’t broken, if you know what I mean…

And in all honesty, it kinda makes me chuckle, because I simply can’t imagine not tinkering.

But that’s just me.

And so for those of you who aren’t saying (or thinking) “what the…?” right about now, then perhaps, just perhaps, you’re a bit like me, and I’d like to extend my hand and officially welcome you to my camp.

The slightly weird-but-harmless camp.

Interesting place, isn’t it?

Here I find myself, again, with a taste for fusion, and what do I do?

I take this beloved and perfect summer-time treat, the sacred burger, insert it into my little brain, and out pops this magical concoction.

Kicked up, spiced up, sweetened up, and generally “beefed up” into this glossy, glaze-y, mildly spicy thing of beauty that you see before you, right now.

This is what I can tell you: that I love a good burger, and I love Korean BBQ.

And so truly, wouldn’t it make perfect sense to put the two together?

Somehow, for me, it did.

Garlic, ginger, soy, and a kiss of sesame are added into juicy ground beef, then the seared patties are slathered in a sweet and spicy Korean-style BBQ sauce, then topped off with fresh, crisp cabbage combined with a kiss of mayo and sweetness, plus a good heaping of spicy kimchi, all on a buttery brioche-style bun—this is the Korean BBQ Burger.

And WOW, is this good!

Perhaps a bit out there, sure, but delicious? Most definitely!

So if the same-ol’-burger-blues have got you down, pick yourself right back up again with this crazy-good little Korean BBQ Burger, and throw some color and flavor back into your summer.

(And enjoy the process of not leaving well enough alone along with me.)

Taste what’s good and pass it on.
