Bulgogi Sloppy Joes • Kimchi Club

Bulgogi Sloppy Joes

Minka Park
This may not have the most appetising name but trust me, it’s a real favourite in our house because it’s delicious and messy. It’s not a traditional Korean dish but it’s an easy weeknight fix and it sure tastes Korean with our sauce and Kimchi.
Enjoy, Minka.

  1. You can choose any of our bulgogi sauces for this recipe! If you like things a bit hotter we suggest trying our Hot Hot Bulgogi sauce.
  2. Brioche is the classic burger bun but potato buns are getting more popular and rightly so. With added potato starch they are moist in texture and help absorb all that yummy slop!
