I have been meaning to try kimchi for a while now. Kimchi is a Korean dish of fermented vegetables. Kimchi is typically seasoned with chili peppers and is usually hot. I had seen some cabbage kimchi at a local asian grocery store but I had been wondering what I could do with it. I came across a dish call buta kimchi donburi or pork and kimchi rice bowl here. Buta kimchi donburi is a Japanese dish that uses the Korean kimchi. This dish was tasty and really showed off the flavour and spiciness of the kimchi. I really enjoed the kimchi and I will be looking for more ways of using it.
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 small onion (sliced)
1 teaspoon ginger (grated)
1 serving pork (thinly sliced, I used a 1/8 inch pork chop, sliced into 1/2 inch strips)
1/4 cup kimchi
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sake
1 teaspoon sugar
1 serving cooked japanese rice
1 green onion (sliced, optional)
1. Heat the oil in a pan.
2. Add the onion and saute until it is translucent.
3. Add the ginger and saute until it is fragrant.
4. Add the pork and saute until the pork is no longer pink.
5. Add the kimchi, soy sauce, sake and sugar and simmer for a few minutes.
6. Place the pork and kimchi on the rice in a bowl and top with the green onion.
