Simple Kimchi

BY : PUBLISHED : July 5th, 2013 UPDATED: August 5th, 2022

This is a recipe for my cheater kimchi. It may not be authentic, but it's easy, inexpensive and tasty!

A tablespoon of chili sauce will give the kimchi a kick, but add the second tablespoon if you like it extra spicy.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 head napa cabbage
  • ¼ cup of kosher salt
  • ½ cup of rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons of sugar
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of sriracha hot chili sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions, chopped

Instructions
 

  • Chop napa cabbage into bite-size pieces. (Or a bit larger/smaller, whatever you prefer.)
  • In a large colander, toss with kosher salt. Set colander in sink and allow cabbage to drain and tenderize for two hours.
  • After two hours, rinse and dry cabbage well, squeezing out any excess water.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together rice wine vinegar, sugar, chili sauce, and garlic. Add chopped green onions. Add cabbage and mix well.
  • Store in the fridge (I used two quart jars.) Kimchi can be eaten immediately but will be even better after a few hours in the fridge.

Notes

A tablespoon of chili sauce will give the kimchi a kick, but add the second tablespoon if you like it extra spicy.
