Instructions Checklist
  • In large bowl gently mix beef and fish sauce; form in six 3/4-inch thick patties. Indent each patty. For charcoal or gas grill, cook patties on rack of covered grill directly over medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes, or until done (160°F), turning once midway through grilling. For each burger, spread 1 Tbsp. Sesame-Scallion Mayonnaise on bun. Layer patty and some kimchi mixture. Makes 6 burgers.

Sesame-Scallion Mayonnaise
  • In small bowl whisk 1 pasteurized egg yolk, 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard, 1 Tbsp. white vinegar, and 1 Tbsp. chili sauce until combined. In a thin stream slowly whisk in 1/3 cup sesame oil and 1/3 cup peanut oil (mayonnaise will thicken). Stir in 2 green onions and 1 tsp. sesame seeds. Refrigerate, covered, up to 3 days; stir before using. Makes 1 scant cup.


Flavors vary between different brands of kimchi. When testing our favorite brands were Wang Kimchi and Korea Kim Chee because they gave the most heat and boldest flavors.

Having lived in South Korea almost half my life, I was amazed this recipe uses ingredients that South Koreans don't know about, nor use.  Red Cabbage; there is nothing like this in South Korea.  The only known Cabbage is the type for making Kimchi.  Dijon Mustard, Chili Sauce?  Totally unknown in South Korea, unless you buy it in the imported food sections of stores, allowing the people buying it are familiar with it, having lived in other countries.
