Ingredients

Korean Bulgogi (beef):

1 yellow onion

6 cloves garlic, minced (2 tablespoons)

4 tablespoons white sugar

1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root

14 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons vinegar

2 teaspoons sesame oil

2 pounds rib-eye beef, thinly sliced

Spicy Mayonnaise:

1 cup prepared mayonnaise

2 tablespoons Sriracha

1 tablespoon Shichimi Togarashi powder (Japanese 7 spice mixture)

Burger Garnish:

Onion slices

Cheddar Jack cheese

Monterey cheese

1 whole fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, sliced into rings and grilled, for serving

Julienned green leaf lettuce and Napa cabbage, for serving

Directions

  1. For the beef: Combine the onion, garlic, sugar, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar and sesame oil in a food processor. Pour marinade over beef in a bowl, toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate 24 hours.
  2. For the spicy mayonnaise: Combine the mayonnaise, Sriracha and Shichimi Togarashi powder in a bowl. 
  3. Heat a grill. Remove beef from marinade and grill to desired doneness. The ribeye will cook fast and will be tender. Grill the onions next to the meat to desired tenderness. 
  4. After the onion is cooked, grill the Cheddar Jack and Monterey cheese on top of the onions. 
  5. The grilled cheese puts the meat and onions together nicely to put on the bun (like a patty). Garnish with the grilled pineapple, lettuce, cabbage, and sliced tomatoes.
