Kalbi hamburger patties

kalbi patties

There is nothing like home made hamburger patties! And with three easy  ingredients, these make the yummiest burgers you have ever tasted!

Three ingredients? How can that be?  While I am one who likes to make a marinade from scratch, I have a hard time passing up a good bargain when I see one.  I found Kalbi sauce on for 50% off!  I can’t even buy the soy sauce for that price! (50% off of $3.98 = $1.99! for 800ml)

So what is it? It is a Korean kalbi marinade sauce made with soy sauce, sugar, onion, garlic, ginger and sesame. So even though I don’t usually love to cook with pre-made sauces, I couldn’t pass up a good deal and with 5lbs of ground beef on sale as well, I took the easy route to yummy-ness.

Sorry – no kid pictures.  I try to be a good mama and have them help me in the kitchen but I don’t love having them play with raw meat.  🙁
