baconbeard: Kimchi is vile stuff suitable only for Koreans and ultra-pretentious "foodies".


So liking a food that's been made for centuries makes you a foodie?

Where do you stand on ketchup and mustard?

I haven't really given the stuff a fair swing, but that's because I worked in a grocery store in high school which sold it. Someone dropped a jar once and it stank up the whole store. We also never sold a single jar in the year I worked there (small town, east texas).

You have proved nothing. Unfort. the Lesser known spelling is the dominate spelling of KimChi here. It is spelled KimChee, both store bought and restaurant versions. There is nothing here that says KimChi. Do you want me to photo the KimChee isle in the market here for you? Or How about a Menu from the Kim Chee restaurant?


lol, dig the heels in harder.  incredulity is unbecoming.

Another thing I like to do with my leftover kimchi is this:

Make 2-3 cups rice in rice cooker. I prefer sushi rice because of the consistency.
Layer baking sheet with half of the rice.
Place kimchi on rice (stay away from the edges).
Cover kimchi with second half of rice.
Bake at 300 degrees for 10 minutes.

It'd be inaccurate to call this Kimchi Bokkeumbap as that recipe generally calls for fried rice and this isn't fried. Works better with the fermented kimchis most people commonly know.

Now for a joke: Kimchi Jjigae

Throw all meat and kimchi leftovers in your fridge into giant pot.
Boil.
Serve.

I like kimchi but not sauerkraut.  I think it's because the spiciness overpowers the texture.

Kimchi is another of those things like Cincinnati chili or Rush, in that there is absolutely NO middle ground.  You either really, really like it, or you really, REALLY, REALLY hate it.

May add a bit of wine to my braised cabbage dinner tonight, just to give it a little twang.
Can't go full Kimchi

Braised cabbage:
Slice the cabbage into wedges, arrange in 9x12 baking dish. Stick with a few toothpicks to hold together the wedges
Drizzle with olive oil.
Add One sliced sweet onion to dish
Add two or three chopped carrots
Salt and fresh ground pepper.
Add 1/3 to 1/2 cup veg or chicken broth. Use a bit of dry white wine as well if you want
Cover tightly, 375 for 45-60 min.
Uncover and turn wedges over (if you can) if no liquid left you can add a little more to cover the bottom and cook for another 20 minutes until lightly browned.

Serve warm or cooled.

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.

Its spelled Kim-Chee you dumb Americans.

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.

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.

1 brat
1 hot dog
1 brat bun
condiments as you see fit

Take a long narrow knife and slit the brat through the center the long way.  Be sure to not go all the way through the other side.  Insert hot dog into the slit made in the brat.  May be difficult, do the best you can.  Cook over indirect grill heat until done.  Place into bun, top with condiments.

/no one said it had to be a kimchi recipe, that stuff is nasty


One of the condiments I chose was kimchi.

Cucumber is my favorite. I grow green cabbage in my garden and I turn it into kimchi. There's a decent brand at the local megamart that I always have on hand too. But nothing compares to the stuff one of my mom's friends makes for me when I'm in town to visit.... I used to enjoy surprising my mom by coming to town unannounced (eight hours away) but now I call ahead so the kimchi is ready when I get there.
