What is kimchi?

A staple in Korean cuisine, kimchi is a traditional dish of salted and fermented vegetables. Though it can be made with most vegetables, traditional kimchi is made with Napa cabbage, Asian radish and a variety of seasonings, including garlic, ginger, fish sauce, pepper flakes and more. Kimchi is served as a side dish or complement to other dishes and can be found in most grocery stores.

If you’ve never had kimchi, you might wonder what it tastes like. With a complex list of ingredients, it is often described as a mix of sweet, sour, spicy and umami. It works as a great accompaniment for all kinds of dishes, from fried rice to savory Korean pancakes.

    Step 1

    Recipe Tips

  • For perfect fried eggs, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Break 4 eggs into skillet. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until eggs whites are just set for sunny-side up. If you like your eggs more set, cook a few minutes more.

    Substitute fried eggs with poached or soft boiled, if you prefer.
