AMAZING!! This recipe is a definite keeper! If you are a fan of Korean cooking then you'll LOVE the flavor of these burgers! I tried it with 1 part ground turkey and 2 parts groiund sirloin for lower fat. If you're a fan of pickles, don't skip the kimichi! Thank you CL!

This recipe is awesome!! We have made them a few times. If you don't like Asian flavors, though, you may not like this recipe. We used a mushroom soy sauce, which tastes better than normal soy sauce in this dish. Good with Sri Racha in lieu of ketchup.

This was really juicy and delicious. It satisfied my burger craving, while still giving me a totally new flavor. Definitely will make this again!

We make mini burgers and serve them on Hawaiian dinner rolls. Top with kimchi. We sometimes mix a tablespoon or two of Korean chili paste with a teaspoon or two of light mayo (instead of ketchup) and top with lettuce and a tomato slice. We've made them for guests and always get asked for the recipe!

Have made this recipe many times, in fact whenever we plan to grill (plain) hamburgers somebody in the family will request these instead. These really are outstanding. Usually serve with some version of kimchi. We like to use a spicy mayo or sauce as mentioned by other reviewers.

Very good. Combined 1st seven ingredients in minichop then added to beef to avoid overworking the meat. Cooked outside on the grill & assembled to recipe using sesame seed bun. Spread a small amount of chile mayo on the bottom bun (3tbs fat free mayo + 1tbs chile garlic paste). Fresh with assertive flavors. Next time I'd add maybe 1tbs rice vinegar along with the soy sauce.

Such an easy and yummy recipe. My whole family liked it. We used Chinese mustard for a little spice.

After watching Food Network Great Foodtruck Race, I had to know why the Korean chefs keep winning! This recipe explains it. I topped mine with an onion ring and fresh baby spinach. I also subbed 1/2 small onion minced for the green onion. Delish!

Easy and delicious! Didn't have fresh ginger, so I had to use ground (dried). Definitely will make again. Didn't shrink on the grill either (I use 85/15 ground chuck). Will try some of the sauces recommended too, but the burger has such great flavor already!
