korean sliders

08.18.10

Korean Sliders must have come to me in a dream because I can’t remember why I thought to make them or where the inspiration came from!  I had picked up some Gochujang sauce, a new sauce from Annie Chuns recently and thought pork would be the perfect way to try it out. Luckily for the sliders, it goes incredibly well with meat.

They were certainly a tasty alternative to the regular beef burgers that frequent our grill and I would definitely recommend dipping your burger not in ketchup, but in extra gochujang sauce for extra kick! Much like ketchup in our homes, gochujang is a staple in Korean homes so treat it as just that!

Korean Sliders - 2-3 servings

Combine meat and sauce together. Form into 4-6 small patties.

Grill over medium heat until meat is cooked through.

Grill buns until golden brown.

Ginger Aoili

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger

Blend ingredients in magic bullet or blender until smooth.

Toppings:

  • sliced carrot
  • sliced cucumber
  • go-chu-jang sauce (I used it like ketchup)

    I agree with Estela, you really should do an appetizer cookbook. Your great recipes and spectacular photography…I’d surely pay money for it!

    These look delicious! I’ve never tried cooking with ground pork. Is it a little leaner than beef?

      It’s generally pretty similar to ground beef. This was from Whole Foods but we also picked some up at the farmers market from a local farm and that was delicious!

    What a unique combination of flavors! These look delicious!

    Like Chelsea, I’ve never cooked with ground pork. I know that it’s relatively high in fat, but I bet it tastes wonderful!

    Thanks for the recipe!

      It is pretty similar to beef – fat wise, but I don’t eat a ton of meat, so I don’t mind the fat!
