Fire up that grill and serve up some of these flavor-packed Korean Kimchi Burgers… loaded with grilled scallions, kimchi, avocado, and gochujang aioli!


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck (1520 percent fat content)
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil, for brushing

for the Gochujang Aioli

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons gochujang
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Divide the meat into 4 equal patties, brush lightly with oil and season generously with Kosher salt. Cook the burgers to your liking, adding a slice of cheddar cheese to each patty during the last 1 minute of cooking. Remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly brush the whole scallions with oil and season with Kosher salt. Grill for 2 minutes (or until char marks are visible), and then flip and cook 1 more minute. Remove from grill and roughly chop, discarding the roots.
  3. Top each hamburger bun with cheeseburger, grilled scallions, kimchi, and avocado. Slather generously with gochujang aioli. Devour immediately.
