Korean Red Pepper Glazed Burgers

I love me a glazed burger. Cooking a store bought vegan burger patty in a flavourful glaze/braising liquid just takes it to a whole new level and is one of my favourite ways to level up an easy dinner! If you haven't made my hoisin burgers yet I highly recommend checking that one out too as it is based on much the same concept as these. Also big shoutout to my boyfriend Simon for helping me out with this recipe, we cook a lot of our meals together and these burgers are mostly his creation, I'm just the messenger (and food stylist, and photographer hehe).



Ingredients (makes 2 burgers):

2 vegan burger patties

4 leaves lettuce

8 slices cucumber

2 burger buns

2 slices vegan cheese

1 sliced scallion


Dressing: 100g vegan sour cream

50g vegan kimchi (roughly chopped)

1tbsp vegan kimchi brine


Glaze:

50g soy sauce

50g gochujang (Korean red pepper paste)

2tsp brown sugar

1tsp gochugaru (Korean red pepper flakes)

30g water

1tsp sesame oil


Method:

Make your dressing by combining sour cream, kimchi and brine and stirring well. Prep your cucumber, scallions and lettuce by washing and slicing. Toast your buns, either in a pan or a toaster. Cook burgers until browned on the outside and pretty much done. Mix all ingredients for the glaze in a bowl/jug. Then, add the glaze into the pan and cook the burgers on medium heat (flipping every now and again) in the mixture until they're all glossy and coated. Depending on the size of your pan you may not need all of the glaze, and we used about 50-70% of the glaze mixture when making ours. (I'd recommend starting with half of it and gradually adding more as you need.) Once the burgers are done, proceed to add a slice of vegan cheese on top of each burger while still in the pan, cover them with a lid or some tin foil and cook until the cheese is melted. In each bun, layer a few heaping spoonfuls of the dressing, some lettuce leaves, cucumber slices, the burger patty and a generous sprinkle of scallions. Add the burger "lid" and enjoy! These are delicious on their own or served with some sweet potato fries.
