Recipe: Kimchi Stew

Other than eating Kimchi as a condiment, there are many ways on how to cook Kimchi into becoming something else.

If you have Kimchi that you'd like to use, you can make it into Kimchi Stew.  I like this dish because it's very easy to cook and perfect for winter season.

What you need:

1/2 kilo Pork Belly
4 cups of chopped Kimchi (you can add more if you want)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp hot pepper flakes
1 tbp hot pepper paste
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
4-6 stalks of green onion, chopped
Radish (cut into strips)
Sesame Oil

What you need to do:

1.  In a pot or earthen bowl, put your chopped Kimchi and some Kimchi Juice.
2.  Add in the pork belly, chopped onions., green onions, hot pepper paste and hot pepper flakes.  You can make the stew more spicy if you add more hot pepper paste and hot pepper flakes.
3.  Pour water until all ingredients are submerged.
4.  Close the lid of the pot and simmer for 20-25 minutes.  The first 10 minutes should be in high heat, then turn down to medium heat.
5.  Add the tofu and radish and let it sit for 10 minutes.
6.  Pour a few drops of Sesame Oil before serving.
