I went to A&P school with a Korean who introduced me to this stuff. That was six years ago. He's gone but I still eat it.

Funny you should say something. I just had some today. A friend of mine and I went to a Korean BBQ for old times sake today. I've been to Korea twice, both times for 120 days. Never got to do a tour over there. That place is a blast! Have you ever had cucumber kimchee? That stuff is the best!

Went to the ROK for a hardship tour in 98-99 and fell in love with the stuff. I prefer the cucumber (spring) kimchee as opposed to the cabbage variety. Needless to say, anything that is burried in the ground in order to ferment for who knows how long is an acquired taste! Every try it with stir-fry pork over rice? It is derecious! [;)]

I have my own personal Korean cook...my mom

Well being half korean/half irish I always have a supply of kimchee (and booze hehe), my mom even hooked my irish wife on the stuff and taught her how to make it.

Go to www.foodtv.com and look up Bulgogi. There's on recipe on there that is super easy to make and it taste great. Then all you have to do is get some Kimchee, Steamed rice, and a head of red leaf lettuce and you're in there!

I've never tried it, don't really want to, either. I dislike the "Korean smell" that nearly all Koreans seem to have, which is just the smell of kimchee. My friend's boarder is a Korean woman who cooks kimchee in their kitchen and I wish she wouldn't. I really don't like the smell.

Kimchi is great! The hotter the better! [heavy]

I haven't had any in a long time. I was with some ROK soldiers in Nam and they turned me onto the stuff. Goooood red man

On the way to the midshifts at Navcams, used to stop by the 7-11 in Wahiawa and pick up a glass jar of the cabbage stuff along with a can of Vienna Franks, and warm them up in the microwave. Then, would put on a thick coat of Vege-MITE...U'mm, U'mm Good, but only after midnight.

I use to eat it around 10 years ago one of my high school buddies was korean. He moved and I have never seen or had kimchee since.

Only the green stuff! By the way, did anyone else notice the buckets of dog legs in the open air markets in Korea? Bradd

Mrs. Different has her own special "no smell" recipe for kimchi. It was one of the favorite dishes at the Las Vegas AR15.com Cooking Class held last year (no joke).
Link Posted: 6/1/2001 5:38:16 PM EST
Not since I broke up with my Korean girlfriend in college. Maybe 1986 or so. I used to have a Korean neighbor who buried 55 gallon drums of the stuff in her backyard. It's true about the smell. But it's good with certain foods. And there are so many different kinds -- not just the cabbage variety.

I hadn't had any in years until last week. Man did it take me back! I really love it. Doorgunner, thanks for the foodtv hint...I'm there!

There's nothing like a good & hot kimchee fart. I was scarfing down some GREAT food and the pile of kimchee that came with it. This "chee" was hotter than hell and tasted excellent. Next day...

I heard of the health benefits of this enzyme rich fermented food. Found some at the health food store. It's not bad. But most of the jar is still in the fridge...
Link Posted: 6/1/2001 6:07:17 PM EST
My ex-marine buddy who served time in Korea loved it. But he did say that sometimes Kimchee was busy, so he would eat Kimsue.

That reminds me I haven't made bul-gogi in a while and I've got a craving for some korean bbq out of the blue (yum) Gone to the fridge to see if I've got everything Later FANTOM out.

After helping my mom make the stuff at my sisters Korean culture camp years ago, I will not go near the stuff ever again. I still can't stand most green vegetables. [puke][puke]

Janus how right you are. Back in 67, when the village was still made out of pressed coke cans and stolen lumber, there was nothing anymore replusive than going to the bar, lining up a little honey, and then having her breath smell like she had just been out in the benjo ditch opening a jar of winter kimchee.
Link Posted: 6/1/2001 6:33:25 PM EST
Love Kimchee! But I can do without the smell. Everytime I eat too much, my co-workers complains and I have to cut back. The recipie calls for lots of garlic, I think the majority of the unpleasant odor comes from it and the fermentation.

I do! the hotter the better, but boy do I pay the price the next day.

Not only do I eat kimchee I make kimchee. The secret ingredient in kimchee is the salted shrimp.

I love it. Haven't had any truly good kimchee since Team Spirit 85. The stuff I find in the USA is tolerable at best.

Great combination! Don't you know they call the Koreans "the Irish of the far east" anyway. I love the stuff. There are supposed to be over 100 different varieties. My favorites are radish, cabbage and cucumber kimchee. I was never in better health than when I was in Korea and had to subsist on a mainly Korean diet of rice, fish and vegetables. Lost weight and felt great. I still try and get my ex wife to give me some whenever I can.

I get kim chee everyday
Link Posted: 6/1/2001 9:22:47 PM EST
My gunner got some Kimchee made fresh from some store outside Ft Hood. He brought it to the field, and I have to say, it's some damn good stuff! The only problem was, they had really crammed the jar so full that when we opened it, the crap just exploded out all over the inside of the turret (including us). Good taste, but holy sh*t that stuff stinks! Nobody would come near our tank for a week after that.
Link Posted: 6/1/2001 9:30:10 PM EST
Personally, can't stand the stuff. Now sushi, that's a different story...
Link Posted: 6/1/2001 9:42:39 PM EST
I agree with SILVER SURFER, the hotter the better!
Link Posted: 6/1/2001 11:28:52 PM EST
I think it explodes because it's still fermenting when they put it in the jar (notice the little bubbles). Kind of like champagne. Well, maybe that's a bad example. he he

Kim Chee; "Eat it all the time." For those of you looking for "THE BEST." Try the Kim Chee made right here in Wahiawa, Hawaii. Right outside the home of the 25th Infantary (Tropical Lightning) - Schofield Barracks. Pump- Liquor Store. The couple that runs the store, makes it themselves. A bar girl suggeted it. Told me that she rates their Kim Chee as "The Best," better than her kitchen mama's stuff. Once you eat their Kim Chee, you don't want to eat the other name brand stuff, that you get at the major grocery stores. Aloha.
Link Posted: 6/2/2001 3:41:23 AM EST
Cabbage, cucumber, radish...all kimchee is good. Easier just to go to the Strip District (a place where groceries are wholesaled) in Pittsburgh and buy it by the gallon jug than to make it.

kimchee with korean beef bbq and some hot rice YUM! steve
Link Posted: 6/2/2001 11:07:52 AM EST
Try this one. On a hot dog bun spread some mayonnaise on. Put in your cooked hot dog. Line your hot dog sandwich with kim chee and Lays potatoe chips. MMM, onolicious. Of course goes good with the best damn beer, Heineken.

Kimchee=Shit, at least that's what I was told it meant.
