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.

Instructions Checklist

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Suggested Pairing

Juicy Spanish rosé.
