This kimchi fried rice is extremely versatile, which may be the reason it has long been a staple of Korean family cooking. Both the meat and vegetables can be subbed to suit your tastes and budget; just make sure you use kimchi baechu to keep it authentic!
These kimchi pancakes are delicious both as a snack and as an appetizer. Plus, they’ll be ready in a snap, and to boot, they’re a great way to use kimchi that has fermented a bit too long and has developed a strong, pungent taste.
As its name—which literally means winter kimchi—suggests, this kimchi is traditionally made shortly before the beginning of winter, as radishes picked during this time are at their firmest and sweetest.
Kimchi Baechu is primarily made of fermented nappa cabbage and hot peppers. It also happens to be the most popular winter kimchi. The seasoning varies from one region to another, and is generally saltier, spicier and juicier in the South of Korea.
