Korean Beef Burger

Posted November 11, 2020


Our sixth food and wine pairing in this series is the 2019 Adelaide Hills Tempranillo which another_food_blogger has matched with a spicy Korean Beef Burger.  The dry, long after palate balancing subtle underlying fruit sweetness in the Adelaide Hills Tempranillo make it a great accompaniment to this rich Korean Beef Burger.

Enjoy.

Method

Aioli

  1. Place all ingredients EXCEPT oil and water in a food processor and blitz or 10-15 second
  2. Combine the 2 oils together and while blending gradually add the oil. The sauce should be quite thick at this point.  Add the cold water while still blending to thin it out to a pourable state

Slaw

  1. Chop all slaw ingredients EXCEPT coriander & sesame seeds finely. Mix together with the coriander & sesame seeds
  2. Place all slaw dressing ingredients into a food processor or bowl and either blend or whisk together until smooth
  3. Pour over slaw

Burger

  1. Heat your BBQ to 200c, season & oil burgers and cook for 2-3 minutes, flip and cook for 1 more minute and then add cheese and cook for 2 more minutes
  2. Remove burgers from BBQ and allow to rest for 2 minutes before serving
  3. Toast buns
