- Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat gas grill to medium-high heat, prepare a medium-high fire in a charcoal grill, or spray a grill pan with cooking spray then heat over medium-high.
- In a medium bowl, combine pork, 1½ tbsp soy sauce, sugar, ginger, and 1 garlic clove. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 5-in patty. Arrange patties on grill rack and close lid. Grill until patties are cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
- Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add remaining 1 garlic clove; cook until aromatic, about 1 minute. Add rice and remaining 1 tbsp soy sauce; cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Gradually add spinach, tossing to wilt before adding more. Serve rice mixture with burgers and kimchi.
