Question What goes well with Kimchi?

Hello.

I made Kimchi for the first time and now that it's been fermenting for a few days i'm ready to have it with a meal.

I'm wondering what goes best with Kimchi?

Unless you are going to use it to make something (omelet, kimchi soup) its generallyserved as a banchan or small side dish.

Maybe grill up some Korean beef bulgogi and serve it with white rice and kimchi. And some gochuchang sauce on the side.



Some people put kimchi in babimbap but you could serve it on the side

I like it with a fork. Put it all in my mouth, then spit the fork out. Enjoy. I love kimchi!

@ Rock..

There's nothing better than kimchi on a ham sandwich. I think it goes so well with ham, I always serve it with a ham dinner. It doesn't have to be served with Asian food...it's good with most anything.

thanks for the ideas!
I have also heard that it tastes good in a burrito with shredded beef. Has anyone here tried this?

Kimchi is really versatile! We eat it many times a week.

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

me.

got any?



tradition aside, (with respect to jenny), try it on a burger, pizza, as a component of salad, with eggs, battered fried fish, or even kck up whatever soup you like with kimchi.

as a chilli head and a person who likes contrary textures, kimchi can go with almost any savory dish.

The best kimchi dish I've had lately was at a place called Pizzeria Lola here in the cities. They make a pie called Lady ZaZa with kimchi, Korean sausage, and serrano peppers. It packs quite a kick but is high on flavor. And they really know how to make a good crust there.

Like I said, I love Kimchi and eat it a lot. My partner's family has a Korean food
business in NJ and sells it. And it's extraordinary.

It's very versatile, for sure.

But why not respect it the first time out?

Eat it on its own as banchan
