Healthy Grilled Burgers
These burgers are based on bulgogi, a traditional Korean barbecue specialty of marinated sirloin. If you prefer more authentic flavor, just top with a splash of rice vinegar and kimchi, the spicy-hot pickled vegetable condiment available at Asian markets. Serve with rice crackers. Beer note: With their gingery Asian spice, these burgers call for a classic brown ale like Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale ($10 for four 12-oz bottles). With a moderate five percent alcohol and a nicely rounded taste, this beer's toasted nut flavor complements the burgers' nutty sesame oil essence. Darker beers are also a great match with the crisp snap of radishes. --Jeffery Lindenmuth
