So i played a little copycat from Mr T's post and took a stab at this homemade Kimchi, it was delicious!
Here is the original post http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/140989/kimchi-quick-hot-pickled
I altered mine a little bit, i added half a large red onion so i went a little heavier on the ingredients
- 2 TBS red wine vinegar
- 1 clove of garlic minced
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1 whole cuc.
- 1/2 large red onion finely sliced
- 1 giant Thai chili from my garden minced
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 tsp Kosher salt (didn't have pickling salt)
super thinly sliced the cucs on my new mandolin (this thing is great!), halved and thinly sliced the onion. Into a mixing bowl and tossed with salt for 20 mins. Then added the rest of the ingredients and let sit and mellow for about 15mins.
Then ate it up with a left over steak i made the other night! I will definitely become a usual goto for a side!
All into the bowl!
My own variation of the redneck pickle press! haha
after 20 mins, then rinsed in a strainer to get the salt off
All plated up!
