Kimchi Burger

by georgegsp

Kimchi and beef go together like ham and eggs, so inevitably someone in Korea came up with the kimchi burger, and just as inevitably I came across it on the internet one evening and fell in love. I spent months developing my version – from the kimchi to the addition of braised beef and cheese, it’s the Marmite of burgers, either loved or loathed.

Kimchi Burger

Serves: 4 Prep Time: Cooking Time:


800 g burger mince brisket
4 pc burger Buns
50 ml mustard mayonnaise (50:50 mix of mustard and mayonnaise)
4 pc leaves of Bibb (Butterhead ) lettuce
4 pc large dessertspoons Kimchi
4 pc thin slices Ogleshield or Cheddar cheese
Maldon sea flakes and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Blend together the minced meat with salt and pepper and form 4 loose patties.
  2. Grill the patties until charred and cooked pink, or done.
  3. Spilt and toast the buns directly over a hot side of the grill until browned, about 30 seconds.
  4. Spread the mustard mayonnaise on the bottom half of each toasted bun. Add a lettuce leaf to each one, followed by a spoonful of Kimchi.
  5. Stack a burger patty on top of the kimchi, followed by a toasted bun lid to finish.
