kimchi recipe
Tuesday, September 14, 2010
 I think i know the secret ingredient - the chicken seasoning powder/msg.

The following is my way of making the Kimchi he likes

Dissolve 1/4 cup coarse sea salt/kosher salt with 1 cup of hot water, then top it up with cold water, enough to cover the nappa cabbage
Ingredients for making the kimchi sauce -
3 tbsp of hot pepper powder, bloom with 3 tbsp hot water
1 tbsp salted shrimp
1 tbsp brown sugar
6 cloves garlic - pass through the garlic press
1 tiny piece ginger - grate with microplane
3 stalks of green onions - chop fine
1 tbsp of Glutinious rice flour , mix with 1/2 cup cold water, then cook in the microwave until cooked.
1 tbsp of chicken seasoning powder
Mix all the ingredients above to make the sauce
Cut one large nappa cabbage about 3 - 31/2 lbs into quarters
Place the quartered cabbage to steep in the salt water for at least 6 - 8 hours, i like it longer

Weigh down the cabbage with something heavy

When the cabbage is properly salted, it will be limp, then let it drain, remove the core and cut into 2 inch pieces

Mix the cut cabbages with the sauce and press it down into a clean glass jar and cover the lid tight. Leave on the counter for 2 days and kimchi will be ready to eat. To know if kimchi is ready, the color of the red pepper powder will be brighter and bubbles are visible due to fermentation.
Keep jar in refrigerator.
