Menchi Katsu Burgers!! This is my version of a deep-fried ground meat patty with a panko crusted exterior, spicy gochujang sauce and seasoned red cabbage slaw! You’ve got to try this!
At the end of February, I had the great pleasure of attending The South Beach Wine & Food Festival, hosted by The Food Network & Cooking Channel, in Miami, Florida with KitchenAid. It was four unforgettable days of sun, endless food, wine and celebrity chef watching and mingling.
And more food. To say I had fun is an understatement.
If you’re a foodie, watch The Food Network or Cooking Channel, or enjoy cooking and eating, you need to attend this event. I’m even thinking of saving money and getting a group of friends together to go next year. It’s that great.
Almost every Food Network and Cooking Channel celebrity chef is there. Seeing them all in one place was crazy exciting. You get to watch culinary demonstrations, walk through huge tents with tables and tables of food and drink, taste delicious foods from local restaurants in the Miami area, attend parties, fabulous events and so much more.

After four days of non-stop eating, one thing stood out to me. Chef Morimoto’s Menchi Katsu Burger! He won the people’s choice award at the Burger Bash and it was a great honor for me meeting him that night.
If you’ve had Japanese katsu, you will love this! Japanese Menchi Katsu is a breaded and deep-fried ground meat cutlet or croquette; kind of like a fried meat cake. The meat is usually ground beef, or pork, or sometimes a mixture of the two.
This is my version of his burger . . I hope you enjoy! And if you like kimchi, I think this burger would also taste great with some kimchi as well!
I hope you check out my post!!! Thank you, guys!
