Bulgogi Burgers with Kimchi Mayo

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes

1/2 cup kimchi, drained, finely chopped 
1/2 cup mayonnaise 
2 tbs. soy sauce
2 tbs. light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. finely grated fresh ginger
3/4 tsp. toasted sesame oil

1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems

2. Prepare grill for medium-high heat. In medium bowl, whisk soy sauce, sugar, ginger, and oil until sugar dissolves.
3. Divide beef into 4 equal-sized patties. Using thumb, make indentation in center of patties. 
4. Grill patties 3 minutes, or until grill marks form on first side. Turn patties over, generously brush with some soy sauce mixture, and continue grilling 3 minutes, or until patties are cooked through but still juicy. 
5. Spread mayonnaise over cut sides of buns and place cooked patties on bottom buns. Brush with more soy mixture. Top with cabbage, cilantro, and onion. Cover with bun tops and serve.
