Anyway, two weeks was plenty of time for the kimchi in my fridge to reach perfect “sourness” for its starring role in either jigae (soupy stew) or bokum (stirfry). Typically I would make kimchi…

Kalbi Jjim + Slow Cooker = Meaty goodness!

‘Tis the season for braised meat! My sister called me a couple of days ago for a Kalbi Jjim (braised short ribs) recipe. I had one scrawled on a sheet of notebook paper in my binder. I jotted the recipe down several years ago when I asked my mom for her (actually, my grandmother’s) recipe, but I…
