Inspired by a Korean-cooking YouTube channel called Maangchi’s Cooking Show, Grace combines pork and kimchi in panko-coated cakes and serves them with an umami-rich soy-sesame mayonnaise. The patties make great burgers, especially with bread-and-butter pickles.

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a bowl, combine the ginger, garlic, scallions, pork and kimchi with 1 teaspoon of salt. Form the mixture into eight 3-inch patties, 1/2 inch thick. Dust the patties with flour.

Step 2    

Put the eggs and panko in 2 shallow bowls. Dip the patties in the egg and then in the panko, pressing to help the crumbs adhere.

Step 3    

In a large skillet, heat 1/4 inch of vegetable oil. Add the patties and fry over moderate heat, turning, until golden and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Step 4    

Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the oil in the skillet. Add the spinach in batches, season with salt and cook over high heat until wilted, about 1 minute.

Step 5    

In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, sesame oil and soy sauce. Mound the spinach on plates and top with the burgers. Drizzle with the sauce, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
