Kimchi Stew (Kimchi JjiGae: 김치찌개)) w/ Pork BulGoGi EASY Kimchi Stew Recipe [돼지불고기 김치찌개 레시피] [キムチチゲ]

Updated: Apr 1, 2020

Kimchi Stew (JjiGae / JigAe) is a classic Korean stew that is commonly served and enjoyed by many! No, this dish is NOT super spicy. It is a perfectly balanced hearty vegetable stew with a perfect combination of spiciness, garlickiness, tanginess, and richness of the broth from perfectly fermented kimchi.

- Preheat your clay pot (or any heavy bottom pot), add the olive oil, onions, salt, and pepper to the clay pot. At high heat, let it "sweat" for a minute. Then add your spicy pork bulgogi (or your choice of meat or mushroom bulgogi) and let it sizzle for 1-2 minutes or until you see a few seared/brown marks on the meat (the key is not to cook the meat all the way through, but just to add a few sizzles/seared marks on the meat). You will also see the liquid of the meat and the bulgogi marinade drain out. Then, add your kimchi and let it sizzle/warm-up in the clay pot for 2-3 minutes.

- Add the miso paste and hot water. Slowly add the hot water to the pot so it just covers the ingredients (the ingredients on top are just barely submerged in water). I'm using the x-large (7"diameter clay pot in the video), and I leave about 1 inch of room to the brim). Add the tofu and gently press down to submerge in the broth. Add the garlic and let it simmer for 5 minutes on high heat. Add the beef Dashida (or anchovy Dashida) and distribute it well with your spoon.

- Taste the broth. If it is too salty, add some water to your taste. If it is bland, add some salt to taste. Depending on how salty or spicy your fermented kimchi is, you need to adjust the saltiness of the broth according to your taste. Now, if your broth is too spicy, then you add some honey or brown sugar (start with less than 1/2 tsp) to round out the spiciness.

- Then add some butter (optional) and distribute well using your spoon. Add the scallions and sesame seeds on top. Your kimchi stew is ready. Now, kimchi stew is supposed to be salty enough that you need to have it with rice. So, please do check out my video Korean Rice 101 For HANGRY Souls. I provide tips on how to make Korean rice super healthy. Yes, a bowl of SUPER FOOD with a variety of grains, brown rice, and beans...:-) If in a pinch, you can also use microwavable pre-cooked rice (see links above).

Bon Appetit...:-)
