  • 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

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.
