Bob’s Burgers Review: Murder, Kimchi Wrote

It’s Sunday morning, and that can only mean one thing: last night, I made and ate a hamburger. Specifically, a burger featured on the hit series, Bob’s Burgers.


The Murder, Kimchi Wrote Burger [S9:E16 “Romain’ Bob-iday”]

About the Episode

When the family forces Bob to take a day off, he wanders aimlessly until he ends up working at Patricia’s 77 Sandwiches. With Bob gone, Linda and the kids find themselves hosting a *very* last-minute baby shower for a member of local biker group The One-Eyed Snakes.

About the Burger

This burger was a first for several reasons.

Not only was it the first time I’ve used kimchi, but it was also the first time I made a veggie burger. That’s right: this burger contained no meat. (It did, however, contain egg, cheese, and mayo, so it isn’t vegan.)

Misc Ingredients

  • Kimchi (I used a mild variety)
  • Cheese (I used a combination of cheddar and Muenster)
  • Buns
  • Arugula
  • Fries
  • Mayo

Patty Ingredients

  • 1 cup black rice
  • 1 15 oz can black beans
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 TBSP mayo (I made black garlic mayo by finely chopping 2 bulbs of black garlic per 1/2 cup of mayo and mixing well)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion salt
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Make the Patties

  • Cook the black rice according to package instructions
  • Meanwhile, mash the beans in a large bowl
  • When the rice has finished cooking, combine rice and all other ingredients until well mixed
  • You may want to combine the breadcrumbs a little at a time to avoid over-dryness
  • Form into patties. I got 6 patties total.
  • Season both sides with salt and pepper.

Make the Burger

  • Cook patties, about 5-6 minutes per side
  • Melt a slice of cheese over each patty
  • Spread mayo on both top and bottom buns
  • Put arugula on bottom bun
  • Put patty on arugula
  • Top patty with kimchi
  • Put top bun in place
  • Serve with fries

The Response

this burger was good but needed some crispness in my opinion. Maybe some bacon.

4 Stars

Come back next week when we’ll try a new, as-yet-to-be-determined burger!
