I love the flavor of kimchi but it is usually to hot for my sissy taste buds. I made a couple minor changes and love this basic recipe. I left out the red pepper flakes, used oyster sauce (didn't have fish sauce on hand , used half the salt and added a several drops of sesame seed oil. I loved it! Thanks!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I only saved a bit of this, Which I found pretty tasty as a condiment on Korean-style skirt steak. The rest I put into the "Kimchi fried rice" recipe, which was awesome. item not reviewed by moderator and published
For one it had too much salt and then it didn't have any flavor, but maybe the salt overrode the flavor...2nd recipe I tried from the October magazine that was not very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
