Bulgogi Burgers

Labels: ,

I was going to make hamburger sliders and thought why not season the beef mince with bulgogi seasoning. This way they won't need ketchup, mustard, tomatoes, pickles, and mustard which make eating regular hamburgers very messy.

I served the hamburgers in mini pita halves together with red and green lettuce. I also had one of my favorite Korean side combination: pan-roasted Korean sweet potato and kimchi. I had a really great lunch today.

Bulgogi Burgers
1 pound ground beef
1½ teaspoons finely minced garlic
1 tablespoon finely minced scallions
½ cup finely minced Asian pear
2 tablespoons soy sauce
½ teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons fine raw sugar, more or less to taste
1 tablespoon Korean roasted sesame oil
mini whole wheat pita
red and green lettuce
  • Combine all ingredients except pita and lettuce in a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Shape a quarter cup of beef into 3-inch round patties. Fry in a hot unoiled cast iron skillet or grill, if desired. Serve in pita halves with green and red lettuce leaves.
