Instructions

1
Let’s Make a Bulgogi Tavern Sandwich with Kkakdugi relish! A Tavern is a loose meat sandwich from the Midwest. This recipe makes 4 sandwiches.
2
Take 4 King’s Hawaiian Hamburger Buns and spread 2 Tbsp Butter evenly between the cut sides of each bun.
3
To make the seasoning sauce, combine 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar with 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce. Stir to mix, though it might not combine completely.
4
Finely mince 1/2 Cup Kkakdugi into a relish and set aside.
5
Heat a durable pan to medium heat and add 1 lb. Ground Beef. Begin breaking apart immediately with a spatula. Cook gently until almost all the pink is gone.
6
Once the beef is almost cooked, add 1 Small Onion (Minced) and stir to combine. Cook until it softens and add in 2 Cloves Garlic (Minced). Stir to combine.
7
Once the aromatics have softened mix in the Seasoning Sauce. Once incorporated, turn the heat to low and add 1 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Oil and mix in.
8
In another pan set to medium heat, toast your hamburger buns. Turn them so they toast evenly. Wrap in a towel to keep warm once they’re finished toasting.
9
To a pan set to medium heat, add 4 Tbsp Vegetable Oil. Once the oil shimmers add 4 Eggs. Spoon hot oil over the eggs. Set aside when whites are set.
10
Squirt Kewpie Mayo on the bottom buns before adding the ground meat. Spoon your Kkakdugi relish over the meat. Top with an egg and sprinkle with Furikake.
11
Break the yolk before eating to make sure the egg sauces the sandwich. Enjoy!
