Ingredients

For the gochujang aïoli

  • 1/4 Cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 Cup sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons gochujang
  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder

For the burger

  • 1 1/2 Pound ground chuck (15-20 percent fat content
  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/3 Cup Napa cabbage kimchi, roughly chopped
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted

Directions

For the gochujang aïoli

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined.

For the burger

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Divide the meat into 4 equal parts and form into patties. Brush lightly with oil, and season generously with salt.

Cook the burgers to your desired doneness, adding a slice of Cheddar cheese to each patty during the last 1 minute of cooking. Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes.

Lightly brush the whole scallions with oil and season with salt. Grill for 2 minutes, until char marks are visible, and then flip and cook for 1 more minute. Remove from the grill and roughly chop, discarding the roots.

Top each hamburger bun with cheeseburger, grilled scallions, kimchi, and avocado. Slather generously with gochujang aïoli. Serve immediately.

Kimchi Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Kimchi Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
