Yes, you are totally right!! Banchan are accompaniments so by definition not eaten on their own.

I need to express myself better!! :-)

IMO if you make your own homemade kimchi you should eat it on its own as a banchan.

But if this is your grand unveiling I suggest something with a more Korean flair. After all you've bothered to make the signature dish if Korea. So I would respect that.

Bulgogi is easy peasy
That's a good point! I'm going to do it this way.

I've tried it by itself to see how it tastes, but for serving the family I'll do the Bulgogi.

I have plenty of Kimchi left over to do it other ways as well.
After that i'll do soup, pizza, burrito and probably the omelet.



thanks everyone!!!

I've never had Kimchi, but judging by the look of it I'd say some strong moonshine should be just right.

Kimchi jjigae (a soupy stew) is my favorite way to use up leftovers.

whoo boy, now you're talkin', jenny.

i love kimchi soup.

i love so many korean soups: kimchi soup, naeung myun, meeyok guk, etc.

actually, while you're quite right about banchan being sides (i was only teasing), they can really be a small meal in sufficient quantity so long as there's rice on the side.

i get laughed at by my korean american friends when i eat things like plain gim (gkim) or kimchi veggies, or dried shrimp salad without rice.

oh, btw, if anyone wants to challenge themselves, eat some hot korean food with warmed soju, rum, or scotch.

it'll blow you're head off.

I personally thing kimchi goes best with pork or chicken dishes rather than with beef. m It's still good with beef of course.

I had it on a burger at this hip burger joint and it was amazing. Over a year later and I am still thinking of that burger!

I eat it any way you would use pickles..love the stuff. Yesterday I used it on a pastrami sandwich. It goes particularly well with a ham dinner also. Don't be fooled into thinking it's only for Asian dishes!
I buy this at my local supermarket..
