Easy Kimchi Jjigae (김치 찌개 – Kimchi Stew) for Two instructions
- Put all ingredients in a small pot (if you don't have the little earthenware pot like I used, you can use a medium saucepan)..
- Turn the heat to medium high until it's actively boiling, uncovered, for a couple of minutes. At that point, give a few gentle stirs to evenly distribute all the ingredients..
- Turn the heat down to medium, put lid askew, and let it continue simmering for another 20 to 25 minutes, until the kimchi is soft and tender..
- Depending on how much salt is in your kimchi and how the salt concentrated during cooking, you might want to adjust the seasoning about 5 minutes before it's done, adding salt in pinches, or fish sauce in dashes, to taste. Or, if too salty, adding just a little bit of water to dilute..
- Enjoy with steamed rice. :).
