Bulgogi rice burger is a great way to enjoy bulgogi with rice patty buns! Rice buns are different, delicious and healthy!
I’m so excited to share today’s recipe
! It is one of the fastest Korean food dishes and some of you have requested this recipe a long time ago.
I do not even remember when I first started owning the Bulogi rice burger. Sounds like at least 10 years or so ago on the small corner of Lottery (a Korean fast food chain the equivalent of Korean McDonalds). I ordered it because it was a newly introduced burger line and I was naturally amazed by the buns made from rice! Who wouldn’t be, right ?!
In my weak illness, my experience was like this. Everything sounded natural and of course I could not get used to the “giant band thing”.
Quick look now, look! I make Bulogi rice burgers in my home! And it sounds real and tastes real! It was really good. I mean really good! I’ve done this eight times since last Monday! Partly, though, it was because I was checking out my recipe but still, it’s an easy meal to prepare once you get the rest of making a rice bun without making it split. 🙂
Bulgogi rice burgers are a great way to use your remaining bulgogi. This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy it in a non-traditional way, like my Bulgogi spring rolls and Bulgogi taco bar recipe. Be sure to check this out if you like Blogger! Enjoy!

How To Make A Bulgogi Rice Burger
1. Make a blogger burger sauce in a pan. – Pour the Bulgoggi burger sauce into a hot pan and cook on low heat for 10-20 seconds. Add the firming agent and stir well until the sauce thickens. (Sauce is served immediately at high temperatures.) Remove the sauce from the plate and set aside.
2. Place hot rice in a large mixing bowl and add rice sauce sauce I. Mix well and set aside.
3. Cover the rice mold with rice wrap. Fill the mold with spicy rice (from step 2.) and gently shape the rice bun by pressing it down to flatten it. The thickness of my rice bun was about 2 / 0.8 inches. Collect food wrap to cover the rice. Put the rice bun for about 5 minutes in the mold. Repeat step 3 with the remaining rice (until you make 3 more rice buns).
Peel a squash, grate it and squeeze the juice. Sprinkle over rice buns with rice seasoning sauce II. Heat the printed side on low heat until light. In the hot season apply rice seasoning sauce II over the bun. Turn it over and grill until slightly crusty. Transfer the dough to a non-stick baking sheet for rice
