Korean Style Burgers with Spicy Coleslaw

September 25, 2017

Korean cuisine is currently my family’s favorite right now… amongst other Asian cuisines. We love all Asian cuisines but right now gochujang is always on my mind…

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 3 green onions, trimmed
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 inch ginger, peeled
  • 2 teaspoons gochujang sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten

Transfer the pork to a mixing bowl and keep aside. Transfer the green onions, cilantro, garlic and ginger to a food processor and process till chopped fine. Add to the ground meat. Add the gochujang, sesame oil, tamari, salt and egg. Mix well and refrigerate at least for an hour. Take out of fridge half an hour before making the burgers. Form into equal sized 4 to 5 patties and cook on stove or grill. Serve on ciabatta rolls topped with the spicy coleslaw.

Spicy Coleslaw

  • 2 cups mixed cabbage coleslaw mix
  • 1 jalapeno, deseeded and chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons gochujang sauce
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Juice of a small lime

Mix the gochujang, mayonnaise, sesame oil, tamari, salt and lime juice in a medium bowl. Add the coleslaw mix, jalapeno and cilantro. Mix well and check for seasonings. Serve on top of burgers.
