Kimchi

I bought a BIG JAR today of sliced Cabbage Kimchi from the Little Korea (32nd &6th) section of NY. ITS HOT and VERY VERY GOOD!!!. I made some skirt steak and used it as a side. How do you use Kimchi?

Kimchi

I've never heard of Kimchi. Is it a vegetable? A spice? A sauce?

I just like to eat it on the side of my Asian dishes. Honeybee, kimchi is basically pickled cabbage. There are many versions of the recipe on the internet. Here is one that I found.

Kimchi

1 large Chinese or Savoy cabbage
1/2 cup rock salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
5 green onions, finely chopped
2 gloves garlic, finely chopped
2 inches ginger, grated
5 teaspoons to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chili
1 tablespoon sugar
2-1/2 cups cold water

Cut the cabbage in half, then into large bite-sized pieces. Place a layer of cabbage in a large bowl and sprinkle with a little salt. Continue with layers of cabbage and salt, finishing with a salt layer. Cover with an upside-down dinner plate that will fit as snugly as possible on top of the cabbage. Weigh down the plate with cans or a small brick and leaves the bowl in a cool place for 5 days.

Remove weights and plate, pour off any liquid, then rise the cabbage well under cold running water. Squeeze out any excess water and combine the cabbage with the cayenne pepper, green onions, garlic, ginger, chili and sugar. Mix well to combine before spooning the cabbage into a large sterilized jar. Pour the water over top and seal with a tight fitting lid. Refrigerate for 3-4 days before eating.

I love it with a passion! I can eat it as a main course with bread and fruit, or as a side. I'll just take it any way I can get it!

Darned fine stuff!

As a side dish or condiment. Mixed with white rice. There is a nice soup using it, too.

We eat a lot of it. I have always liked fresh kimchi but have learned to really like the fermented stuff, too. Even though it admittedly smells awful.

I am going to make another attempt at making it soon, but need to hit a Korean grocery, since some of the ingredients to make the authentic-tasting stuff are sort of hard to find.

deb, next time you are in the city, c'mon up and visit me at the broadcast center on west 57th. gonna have to go downtown to check out little korea.

i love kimchee, all kinds. i've had the standard cabbage one, plus scallion, cucumber, mushroom, carrot, tofu, and some others that i couldn't tell what the original veggie was...

OK Buckytom. One day. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy going to Strokos, Mee on 9th and Ocean Dragon. Beijing is ok except when the Asian gal goes wild with all the students. Biggie Bagel sucks. Keep away from Roosevelt Deli and Tasos is not as great as it looks. Food Village is great for a quick breakfast as well as the Hospital. Blimpies isn't bad either. The Egyptian guy in front of 555 with his cart may already be gone for the winter.

wow, you know the whole area around here!!!!!!!! lol about tasos, the roosevelt, and beijing. you have to order the 1/2 fried chicken and fried rice before 1pm in beijing, or it's gets re-fried a coupla times to keep it warm. yuk. the little asian woman is a dynamo. i would have killed a coupla those kids by now.
never been to biggie bagel, and i'm not a big fan of blimpie.
the egyptian dude in front of the 5's is a great guy, and has a mean chicken gyro in a pita, or better yet, over yellow rice. i wave hello and/or goodnight to him every day, great guy.
mee and ocean dragon are good, but i won't go into strokos anymore. they are racists (long story), and i'm not patronizing a place like that...

did you ever eat in jimmy armstrong's? one of my top 5 all time fav restaurants in my lifetime.

btw, did you ever work or live around here? you know the area so well...
