This was totally delicious. The only thing I did differently was the cabbage slaw--I felt like we had enough gojuchang in the burger itself, so just made a simple asian slaw with sesame oil, salt, lime and a dash of sugar. I felt like that was a better, more acidic compliment to the rich, spicy burgers. Really delicious how they caramelize up on the grill! We will definitely make this again!
