Kimchi stew

Kimchi-jjigae 김치찌개

kimchi-jjigae (kimchi stew) is a favorite dish among Koreans all year ’round. When you eat kimchi stew with rice, you don’t need any other side dishes. You can replace the pork in this recipe with a can of tuna, or even 2 cans of tuna. : )


Ok, let’s start!

  1. In a shallow pot, put some chopped kimchi and juice.
  2. Add sliced onion, hot pepper paste, hot pepper flakes, sugar, and green onions, and pork belly (or tuna).
  3. Pour water over top until all the ingredients are submerged.
  4. Close the lid of the pot and boil it 25 or 30 minutes. (first 10 minutes will be high heat and then turn down the heat over medium heat)
  5. Add some tofu and boil it 5 minutes more and put some sesame oil right before serving.

(To make the soybean sprouts side dish (kongnamul muchim) in this video, see this detailed recipe).
