Ingredients

  • 600g coarsely minced beef, not too lean
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 tbsp chopped green onions
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely grated
  • 2cm knob ginger, finely grated
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Sea salt and pepper
    3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 onions, halved and finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp mirin (Japanese rice wine)
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar or wine vinegar
    3 tbsp whole-egg mayonnaise
    1 tsp chilli sauce (eg Sriracha) to taste
  • 4 burger buns
  • 8 soft lettuce leaves
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • ½ cucumber, finely sliced
  • 2 small tomatoes, sliced

Method

Mix the beef, using your hands, with two tablespoons soy sauce, sesame oil, egg, green onions, garlic, ginger, sugar, salt and pepper. Form into patties and refrigerate for an hour.

Heat two tablespoons vegetable oil in a fry pan and cook onions over medium heat for 10 minutes, tossing well until softened. Add remaining soy, mirin and vinegar and cook for five to 10 minutes more until golden brown. Set aside.

Whisk mayonnaise and chilli sauce. Brush burgers with remaining vegetable oil and grill or pan-fry over medium heat for four minutes on each side until browned (beware of burning). Split burger buns and lightly grill insides. Top base buns with lettuce leaves and beef burgers. Add a spoonful of chilli mayo and top with soy onions and sesame seeds. Arrange lettuce, cucumber and tomato on remaining bun tops alongside and serve.

    What a great idea! Korean food sure is popular and delicious these days. Best part about Korean meats and flavours is that their they can be directly transferred to things like burgers and burritos to make an amazing flavour even more amazing! I'd even recommend using a bit of that spicy kimchi with the salad for even more ZING!
