Watermelon Rind Kimchi Burger

Have Made It

This delicious pork burger took home the Grand Prize in our first-ever Recipe Contest. Juice was used in the burger patty, along with a slice of watermelon in the burger. Recipe author Shauna Havey from Roy, Utah says “It’ll make you wonder why you’ve never put watermelon on your burger before!”

    6 servings







  1. Place the watermelon rind in a large bowl and sprinkle with the salt. Let sit one hour, then rinse thoroughly under cold water. Pat dry and place into a clean bowl.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients for the kimchi and toss to thoroughly combine. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
  3. Mix all the ingredients for the burgers and shape into six equal size burgers.
  4. Grill the patties for 4-6 minutes per side until done to your liking. Note: The thicker the burger, the longer it will take to cook. Grill to desired temperature.
  5. Mix the ingredients for the aioli and spread it onto the bottom buns. Add a few sprigs of fresh cilantro before setting the burgers on top.
  6. Layer the watermelon slices and kimchi on top of each burger. Spread more aioli onto the top buns before setting them into place. Serve and enjoy!
