If you don't like kimchi, you've either never had kimchi, or your palate stopped developing when you were three.

Man, I love me some good kimchi.

Kim-cheese:

1 pack ramen (any flavor)
1/2 cup kimchi
1 slice American cheese

Prepare ramen as indicated on package. When done, mix in kimchi and cheese. Slurp.

And what is everyone's feelings on sauerkraut?   Really a European version of kimchi.


I love sauerkraut, and eat it in the same fashion as I'd eat kimchi.

Sort of but really no.  Sauerkraut is very bland.  I never took to sauerkraut but I love kimchi.

I had kielbasa on a roll with kimchi and red cabbage slaw for dinner last night.

Kimchi goes in my bloody mary, too, when I'm the one making them.

The Irresponsible Captain: I tried it... It was good, but then I love Sauerkraut. A vinegar slaw and fries on your sandwich is good as well.


I love Sauerkraut but can't get into Kimchi.  And I'm generally a fan of Korean food. There's a restaurant down the street from me and I can eat the tiny side they give you... maybe I'll work my way up.


TheShavingofOccam123: I don't do kimchi but do ferment lots of vegetables in brine. Cabbage, carrots, onions, ginger...lots of them.

[www.perfectpickler.com image 393x509]

I use this type of a set up. Chopped cabbage, strips of carrot. chopped ginger, peppercorns, herbes de provence and strips of onion/ About 5 days in a dark cabinet, then refrigerate. I use it on sandwiches all the time. I use an airlock because I don't like inspecting the contents of a crock and skimming the top off. Not that that is a problem in 5 days...

And btw fermentation removes a lot of the gas problem and also apparently rebuilds the gut bacteria. I don't really care because DAMN it tastes good on a pastrami on rye.


OK, look... that's cool, and I'm totally a fan of dill pickles and sauerkraut.  I grew up with Polish grandmas, I kind of have to be.


But I still have to do this:

The Goddamn Batman: Kimchi jigae is farking awesome. That is all.


At the bottom floor of where I work, there is a kimchi chiggae restaurant.  They make it thick with fatty meat and a pair of scissors.  Only 6,000 won.

Kimchi is intoxicatingly good, all varieties.

/Everyone in Korea brags that they make it by hand, then secretly by it at Lotte Mart
 
2014-02-04 12:15:46 PM
You know Kimchi is actually the name and ultimately a metaphor for the midget Korean cabana-boy who works in the Hamptons, right?

Now, go read these posts again.

Tasty, tasty kimchi!

And yes, there's something wrong with people who don't like kimchi.

Although, I have had bad kimchi.  It was vegetarian and WAY too fresh, I fixed it with some fish sauce and a few weeks out of the refrigerator.  Then it was good.

You mean "it's", dumbass.

Also, it's not spelled any correct way in the Latin alphabet. Since the Koreans don't use a Latin alphabet or romanization of their language (like Vietnamese or the various Malay dialects of SE Asia), it really doesn't matter how Americans spell it out.

However, thanks for your input, genius.

Kimchi is one of the few things that smells more foul going in the body than coming out of the body.

Kimchi or can be spelled Kim-Chee, which is how its spelled where I live. Kim-Chee is not spelled Kimchi in any eating establishment or store bought Kim-Chee. Dumb Americans.

According to family lore, my grandpa used to make kimchi in the 1950s before anyone knew what it was. He had some friends that came back from the Korean war and told him about it and he started making it, burying mason jars in the backyard. Probably the only kimchi eater in 1950s Shaker Heights Ohio.

Of course he called it "spicy chinese sauerkraut". Grandma, mom, and my aunt would basically have to leave the kitchen whenever he unjarred the stinky stuff.
 
2014-02-04 12:27:58 PM
This is weird, I just checked this kimchi book out from by library because I love the stuff:

http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/books/product/9781607743354-item.html? s_ campaign=goo-PLATest&gclid=CK7fp9H8srwCFQtgMgodQX0Azg

There's a kimchi marguerita in there, but it's mostly about various regional formulations and a lot of stews and braises where kimchi is served with or undermeath the main. 60 recipes and a lot of talky-talk, and there isn't really that much to say about Asian coleslaw.

But speaking as someone who both loves kimchi and understands why a lot of people think of its taste as fermenting garbage, kimchi is a minor ethnic pickled dish that most people hate. Like eggs or herring. And because one part kimchi will overpower however many parts of everything else you have with it or make with it, its use in cooking is pretty limitied. In fact, this fark thread may mark the high-water mark of its success in the west.

I cheat.  I buy a packet of kimchi seasoning at the grocery store and follow the instructions, adding salt and extra red pepper.

AverageAmericanGuy: My favorite recipe:

Name: Kimchi
Ingredients:
* One jar of kimchi

Steps:
1. Open jar of kimchi
2. Use a fork or chopsticks to pull kimchi out of jar. Place kimchi on plate
3. Close jar tightly

Enjoy!


Mine's a little easier: go to Korean BBQ restaurant. Order kim chi. Enjoy!

Actually, there's a Chinese restaurant near my office that serves great kim chi as a free appetizer, the way some Japanese restaurants serve edamame. We love it so much, we order a side dish of it with our meals.

Somebody picked up a jar of Kimchi during a recent shopping trip and stuck it in the pantry.  I almost tried it this weekend but the jar said "keep refrigerated" and I wasn't sure if it had gone bad sitting at room temp for a month.  Is the "keep refrigerated" admonition just for after opening?  Should it be safe to eat?
 
2014-02-04 12:38:30 PM
Spice and Garlic are fine. Im just not into sour/pickle/vinegar tastes.

Cabbage also sucks, but thats less of an issue than the sourness.

Korean cuisine includes too many good things to confine the topic to just kimchi.  Some of my favorites:

Samgyetang ( 삼계탕 ) - not spicy good quite good, especially on a cold day.
Doenjang jjigae ( 된장 찌개 ) - also not really spicy but very traditional
Bulgogi ( 불고기 ) - nearly everyone foreigner's favorite korean meal (fire meat!).

I also miss late-night-after-drinking food truck fare.

Had a cold coming on one time and the guys at Samsung Heavy Industries I was working with noticed and took me out for a dinner they said would help.  Main dish was a piping hot and spicy hot soup-ish thing with vegetables and what was probably rings of pork intestine in it.  Ate several helpings of that and it was great.  Cleared up the cold too.  Wish I knew what the dish was called.

When I used to live in LA, I'd go to the Korean market on Western near Hollywood.  They had all kinds of kimchi.. radish, cucumber, green onion, bean sprout.   Stuff was fabulous.  Put a little of that into some ramen noodles and I was good to go.  Now I live in podunk and only Wal-Fart carries it, and it's one brand. and it's just cabbage and not all that good.  Damn, now I'm going to have to order some to satisfy this craving.
 
2014-02-04 12:48:59 PM

bborchar: Kimchi hot pots, kimchi ramen, kimchi fried rice...

I always keep a big jar of it in my fridge.  It's delicious flavoring.


We had a problem with our well last night- long story -but I had to ship the family off to her parents last night, so kimchi ramen it was. Tomorrow I'm making a roast and while my older son isn't into horseradish yet, he'll have kimchi with the beef. I think they go great together too...

I'm surprised it hasn't exploded yet.  I think it should be OK, though. If you do open it, do it over the sink, because it may bubble over.  Also, if it smells really horrible when you do get it open - it's probably just fine!

I am also a fan of sauerkraut, alone and on brats. Smothered in spicy mustard.

I've yet to try kimchi. There seem to be 2 opinions of those I have polled who've tried it:
1) OMG TEH YUCK
2) OMG TEH YUM

I'll have to try it, methinks.

IDK. That'd be a tough one to open the jar and tell if it's good or not. LOL. I'd toss it and get another if its the plastic jar that you find in the refrigerated produce section. If it's in a glass jar with a metal lid, it would probably be okay, not really worth risk tho.
