Bul Go Burgers

It's July. This means burger season. If I have to go out in the rain to grill my burgers, so be it. It's summer.

There's a little supermarket not too far from my home. They don't have everything there, but they do have great veggies & the beef is freshly ground. I go in, with the plan of making korean-style beef burgers, I come out & feel as though I will be swept away with the flood rains pouring through the city. No matter, I have everything I need (an umbrella), so I walk home, start cooking & hope that rain will stop.

Bulgogi Burgers with Sweet Potato & Zucchini Fries

330 g ground beef
2 Tbsp red wine
1 Tbsp each minced garlic & ginger
1 green onion, chopped
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp panko (or regular breadcumbs)
1 sweet potato, peeled & sliced thinly
2 zucchinis, sliced thinly
1 medium onion, sliced

Mix beef, wine, garlic, ginger, green onion, soy & panko together, shape into patties & allow to sit (covered, in the fridge) for 30 minutes.
Make zucchini & sweet potato chips: add slices to hot oil & drain.
Sautee onions unitl translucent.
Grill burgers.
Serve burgers with Kimchi (store bought) and cooked onion rings.

Hopefully these rains will stop for more than a few hours. There was a day of sun this week, maybe there'll be another one soon.

The fried zucchini and sweet potatoes are great. Love this execution.

We finally hit 31 degrees here yesterday!! It's amazing because in approximately 6 weeks we'll probably see some snow on the ground ;)

mmmmmmmmmm bulgogi...I'm going to give these a try.

Murasaki: Thanks! They're also tasty ;-) I find it hard to get the oil at the right temperature; I'm not too sure how much deep frying I'll be doing in the future.

Cathy: You are the Burger Queen! I'd be flattered if you tried them. 6 weeks of summer: it's not that much better in Ontario.
