Instructions Checklist
  • Bring rice vinegar, water, sugar, and sriracha to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook until sugar has dissolved, about 2 minutes. Place cucumber and red onion in a flat-bottomed dish and pour vinegar mixture over the top. Set aside to pickle as you prepare the bulgogi.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef in the hot skillet until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain and discard grease; return beef to skillet. Add soy sauce, brown sugar, green onions, sesame oil, sriracha, garlic, and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce begins to thicken, about 8 minutes.

  • Serve bulgogi mixture on hamburger buns topped with the pickled cucumbers and onions.

Very good! I will be making this again. Please make sure you do use the low sodium soy sauce. I used 1/2 aminos and 1/2 regular soy sauce ( did not have enough of aminos for the full amount)...it was still pretty salty. Read More

We're not big fans of traditional sloppy joes but I thought I would give this a try. I reduced the soy sauce a bit and added water to make up the difference since I was concerned it might be too salty. I also skipped the sriracha in the quick pickles and added a sliced jalapeno instead. We really enjoyed it. Hubby told me to not lose this recipe which is high praise from him. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks Nicole. Read More

I didn't make any changes to this recipe but after making it I would. I liked the pickles very much. If I make it a second time I think I would double the sauce and remove the cooked ground beef before thickening the sauce as my meat was overcooked by the time the sauce had thickened. Loved the flavor though! Read More
