Gimbap (aka Kimbap: 김밥): 🐟Tuna Gimbap & 🌶️Kimchi 🧀Cheese Kimbap (참치 김밥 & 김치 치즈 김밥) - Ep.


Traditional Korean Rice Seaweed Roll/Sushi Maki Roll (Kimbap/Gimbap 김밥) is made with BulGoGi (Korean marinated beef) and other vegetables. Kimbap is an uber popular finger food as well as it being the GO-TO snack/food for picnics or On-The-Go-Food. It is such a popular snack that there are so many variations of Kimbap. And if you happen to live near or visit Korea town, make sure to Google Search for KimBap specialty restaurants. They specialize in making all sorts of variations of Kimbap and the unique combinations of ingredients for each variation is amazing and so scrumptious! Usually, you'll find at least a dozen variations of Kimbap at these Kimbap specialty restaurants. I literally have SERIOUS KIMBAP ORDERING DILEMMA because I LITERALLY WANT TO ORDER EVERYTHING ON THE MENU...😂🤤😋

Other than BulGoGi Gimbap being my favorite, Tuna Gimbap (참치 김밥) and Kimchi Cheese Kimbap (김치 치즈 김밥) are my two other Kimbap loves...💚💕🧡 If you have not tried Tuna Kimbap and/or Kimchi Cheese Kimbap, well YOU MUST...SO YUM🤤🤤🤤

RECIPE INSTRUCTION

1. To Season Cooked Korean Rice

(Please watch Korean Rice 101 video recipe to learn how to cook Korean rice. For making Kimbap rice, please add 10% less water, than you normally would.)

Once the rice is cooked, quickly transfer to a large mixing bowl. Using a rice scooper or spatula, fluff the rice to release the steam and heat. Go sideways using the rice scooper or spatula by lifting the rice, going across. Do not "chop" the rice or press it down.

Once the steam has been released, add the sesame oil, olive oil and Kosher salt. Again, mix the seasoning to the rice by fluffing it with the rice scooper. Taste your rice. It should taste slightly salty with a hint of sesame oil taste. Do not over salt or over season with the sesame oil. Cover the bowl with the cheesecloth and let it cool down to room temperature or lukewarm.

2. To Make Scrambled Egg Strips

Preheat your large non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Add the olive oil and evenly coat the pan. Bring your heat down to low-medium. Add the eggs (vigorously whip for 1 minute) to the pan. Move the pan around to coat the entire pan with the egg. Once you see the rim of the eggs cooked, gently tap it with the spatula to prevent the edge from sticking. As soon as the liquid egg disappears (in about 1 to 1.5 minutes), flip the egg over and turn off the heat. You want to cook the eggs slowly to prevent brown marks on the eggs. (If you break the egg while flipping over, not to worry since we will be cutting them into strips, anyway). Sprinkle 1 to 2 pinches of Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper (about 3 turns on your peppermill). Quickly transfer to a plate. Let the egg cool and bring to room temperature. Once the egg cools down, roll it up and slice into 3/4" wide strips, as shown in the video.

3. To Sautee Fermented Kimchi

Preheat your medium non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Add the olive oil and kimchi. Sautee for 2 minutes on medium heat and mix well using spatula. Then add the scallions warm/hot water mixed in with honey to the pan. Mix well and sautee for 1 minute. Add the roasted sesame seeds and sesame oil. Mix well for 10 to 15 seconds. Turn off the heat and transfer to a plate immediately. Let the sauteed Kimchi cool down to room temperature.

4. On a large platter/tray, assemble all the ingredients for the Kimbap roll. Make sure to sprinkle some salt on the avocado strips.

5. Layering The Ingredients For Kimbap Roll

With the sushi mat down first, add a sheet of the sushi grade seaweed (rough side facing up) on top. Lightly wet your finger tips with the water and grab a handful of rice (approximately 1.5 to 2 cups of cooked rice per seaweed sheet). Place it down on the seaweed and evenly distribute the rice. You want the rice to cover most of the seaweed (leave 1/4 uncovered). The thickness of the layer of rice should be so that you can still see a little of the seaweed (do not put too much rice that you cannot see the seaweed). Gently distribute the rice for even layer. Do not press down on the rice and mush the grains of the rice. Add a few pieces of the rice grains at the top edge of the seaweed sheet, as shown in the video (this part you can press down on the rice grains since it will become our "glue" that will seal up the Kimbap roll).

Tuna Kimbap

Lay down 2 to 3 perilla leaves on the bottom of the seaweed rice sheet. Then add the tuna on top of the perilla leaves, creating a small mountain across, as shown in the video. Your tuna should be about 30% of the ingredients inside the rice/sushi roll. Carefully, roll up the perilla leaves around the mountain of tuna to fully cover it, as shown in the video. Then start layering the rest of the ingredients. Make sure to gently pack down the "mountain" of ingredients as you add more ingredients. The last ingredient for layering are the Romain lettuce leaves. For my vegetarian friends, add more avocado, in place of the tuna. Make sure to season the avocado with Kosher salt.

Kimchi Cheese Kimbap

Fold your cheese slice into two halves and lay them across the bottom of the seaweed rice sheet. Then add the sauteed Kimchi on top of the cheese slices, creating a small mountain across, as shown in the video. Your sauteed Kimchi should be about 30% of the ingredients inside the rice/sushi roll. Add the rest of the ingredients. Make sure to gently pack down the "mountain" of ingredients as you add more ingredients. The last ingredient for layering is the egg strip.

6. Rolling Up The Kimbap

Make sure the edge of the seaweed sheet with the ingredients on top are at the edge of the sushi mat. With both hands of your four fingers on top of the ingredients (gently holding the "mountain" of ingredients), place both thumbs under the edge of the sushi mat. Bring up the edge up the sushi mat and start rolling over to cover the "mountain" of ingredients. Once the edge of the mat reaches the rice on the seaweed sheet, gently squeeze the sushi mat for five seconds. Then fold over the excess part of the sushi mat over (as shown in the video) and continue rolling. Once you reach the end of the seaweed sheet, tightly roll up the kimbap roll inside the sushi mat and gently squeeze for 10 seconds.

7. Letting The Kimbap Roll Rest

Dip your finger tips in the olive oil and rub it on your fingers. Then gently coat the rolled up the seaweed of the Kimbap. With the edge part of the seaweed facing down, let the rolled up Kimbap rest for five minutes. This resting period is important for the ingredients to have the opportunity to "get to know each other" so all the ingredients can be shaped into a roll.

8. Cutting The Kimbap

Using a serrated knife is highly recommended. Or if using a chef's knife, please make sure it is sharpened.

With the seal part of the seaweed facing down, start cutting the Kimbap with your knife, with a back and forth motion. Do not press down to cut. After about your third or fourth slice, you'll notice that your knife has built up starch from the rice. Using a wet paper towel to wipe off the start and then lightly coat the knife with some olive oil. Do not use water. Water is the enemy when cutting kimbap rolls. Water tends to quickly breakdown the seaweed and significantly increases the chances of your kimbap roll busting wide open.

9. Recycling & Freezing Your Leftover Kimbap

If you happen to have extra Kimbap leftover, wrap them (stacked kimbap slices together) in saran wrap (double or triple wrapping) and freeze them. Let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

OR just store in the refrigerator if you plan on eating your leftover Kimbap in two to three days.
