Kimchi Pork Burgers
Preheat grill to high.Advertisement
Mix pork, 1/2 cup sliced scallions, 1/2 cup kimchi, fish sauce and pepper in a large bowl. Form into 4 patties, each about 4 inches wide.
Grill the patties, turning once, until the internal temperature registers 160 degrees F, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and let rest for 10 minutes. Brush cabbage and whole scallions with oil and grill until charred, about 1 minute per side. Coarsely chop the cabbage and cut the scallions into 2-inch pieces.
Whisk mayonnaise, honey, soy sauce, vinegar and the remaining 1/2 cup sliced scallions in a small bowl. Serve the burgers on the buns, with the sauce, cabbage, scallions and the remaining kimchi.
Tip: The Korean fermented vegetable condiment kimchi comes in a wide variety of flavors and heat levels. Gochugaru (Korean red chile flakes) in traditional or hot kimchi adds kick to this burger. If heat's not your thing, try a mild or chile-free white kimchi.
To make ahead: Prepare patties (Step 2) and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.
