For his birthday in a few days, my husband asked for me to try making him kimchi jjigae, so I needed kimchi. Since kimchi is usually too strong for me to handle, and this recipe looked much more mild than the other, I decided to give it a go. I used Napa cabbage, because I found some at the grocery store, and soy sauce instead of fish sauce. It turned out great, and I can’t wait to see how it goes in the kimchi stew. I’m sure the flavor will be even better in a few days :)

The recipe is here.

      Thank you! My husband really enjoyed it and also the kimchi jjigae that I made with it for his birthday. I’m so glad I found your website so that I can cook him all the Korean food that he grew up eating. I would’ve been hopeless to learn Korean cooking otherwise! Thank you!
