Gluten-Free Kimchi Burger with Spicy Mayo

These burgers are filled with umami richness from kimchi and flavoured with sesame oil, soy and fresh ginger. The patties are gluten-free and topped with a fried egg and more kimchi. Use a gluten-free bun or large kale leaves as a bun-free alternative.

Prep Time:10 minutes

Total Time:26 minutes

Serves: 4


For the spicy mayo:

½ cup mayonnaise

1 tbsp Sriracha

1 tbsp lime juice

For the kimchi burger:

1Lb lean ground beef

½ cup finely chopped kimchi, drained well, plus extra for topping

2 garlic cloves, finely grated

2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp sesame oil

1 tbsp chili garlic sauce (or Sriracha)

¼ cup ground flax seeds

½ cup chopped cilantro, packed

4 gluten-free burger buns

4 large eggs, for frying


1. In a small bowl whisk together mayonnaise, Sriracha and lime juice. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator.

2. Preheat BBQ to medium heat.

3. In a large bowl combine ground beef, chopped kimchi, grated garlic, grated fresh ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili garlic sauce, gluten-free bread crumbs and chopped cilantro. Mix well to combine. Shape into 4 burger patties, each about ½-inch thick.

4. Oil BBQ. Barbecue burgers until cooked through, about 6 to 8 minutes per side. Warm buns on grill, if you like. Cover burgers with foil. Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Oil well. Fry four eggs.

5. Place burgers on warm buns. Spread with spicy mayo. Top with more kimchi and a fried egg.
