Brown sugar, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil infuse these burgers with irresistible sweet and savory notes, while stirring kimchi into mayonnaise makes for the perfect spicy, creamy condiment.



  1. Preheat a grill to medium high. Mix the kimchi and mayonnaise in a small bowl; set aside. Combine the ground beef, garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl. Form the beef into 4 patties, about 4 inches wide and 3/4 inch thick.
  2. Oil the grill grates. Add the patties and cook until marked on the bottom and starting to cook up the sides, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook 3 to 4 more minutes for medium rare.
  3. Toast the buns on the grill. Transfer the burgers to the bun bottoms. Top with the kimchi mayonnaise, pickles and bun tops. Serve with chips.
