Kimchi, a popular Korean main or side dish, is delicious on its own but is especially mouth-watering when served with grilled meats. And that combination is exactly what makes this kimchi burger recipe a winner. If you’ve never heard of kimchi, which consists of fermented napa cabbage, garlic, onions, chili paste, and daikon radish, you’ll be heading to the store to buy some more after making these burgers! Feel free to share this recipe with friends and family on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter. They’ll be happy you introduced them to this unique and flavorful burger.

To make two servings, combine 1 tablespoon each of sesame oil, Sriracha, and soy sauce in a small bowl and set aside. Shape beef into two patties.

After placing the patties on a medium-hot grill, brush them with the sesame oil mixture and cook for five minutes. Brush with the remaining mixture and continue cooking the patties for five minutes on each side, until they’re cooked as desired (cook for a minimum of ten minutes). Top patties with slices of Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar or Extra Sharp Cracker Cuts, let cheese melt, and remove from grill.

In a small bowl, combine Cabot Lowfat Plain Greek Yogurt, ½ teaspoon soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon Sriracha. Spread the yogurt mixture over cut-side of top burger buns and place patties on bottom burger buns. Top with kimchi and bun tops and your burgers are ready to eat. Savor the amazing flavor and texture of each bite!
