Bulgogi Burgers

Bulgogi Burgers

My clan has been playing with variations on the classic burger for years and a few combinations have made it to the top of the list.  The Korean inspired bulgogi burger is a go-to when we are grilling.

The burger combines the crunch of scallions with the umami from soy sauce, the nutty presence of sesame oil, garlic, ginger and a touch of sweetness from Palm or brown sugar

I’ve cooked these as sliders and full on burgers.

Serve with a sesame bun and top with kimchi or Cucumber Scallion Pickle



  • 4-5 scallions, sliced thinly (white parts)
  • 2 tbs ginger minced
  • 2 tbs garlic minced
  • 2 tbs sesame oil
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tbs gochujang
  • 1 tbs brown sugar (I used palm sugar)
  • 1 apple, grated
  • 1 1/2 lb ground chuck


  1. mix all ingredient together
  2. divide into six patties
  3. grill over med-high heat - there’s lots of sugars in here so keep an eye on it
  4. serve on sesame bun with kimchi or scallion pickles
