    I bought kimchi because of this thread and now I don't know what to eat it with. LOL Suggestions? We're having BBQ'd smokies this week, so I thought I'd try it on those... any other ideas?

    Eat it out of the jar, like a heathen.

    I just use it as a side accompaniment with meat. Smokies should be good!

    Pretty much this. It goes exceptionally well with eggs, but any meat that I have paired it with thus far (including ground beef, chicken thighs, wings, and legs, etc.) has worked very well with it.

    I mix kimchi with cooked greens or cabbage and ham hocks. Delicious!!!

    I got some cabbage, and I'm going to try my hand at making some. Thanks @RalfLott for the video!

    I also just scoop a pile onto my plate to eat with meat, but its also pretty good in a spicy asian soup. I'll often just toss it in a pot with some miso & dashi or some chicken broth along with some garlic, ginger, lemongrass, fresh chillis & some chopped up bits of chicken, beef or pork.

    it's going to make me poop, isnt it...... :/

    Nevermind my previous response. It was just delayed by a couple of days. The pooping is real. My roommate is angry. This apartment smells like the inside of bloated roadkill.

    @Gallowmere1984 Try to find lacto-fermented sauerkraut. Your roommate will thank you.

    I hope your butt is feeling better now, I suggest getting a lot of Febreeze and scented candles in to kill the poop smell and some aloe vera butt wipes, your backside will thank you.

    Where I am from we eat a lot of sauerkraut, I have yet to make my own or find a decent substitute here in the UK, but we eat it with anything meaty, makes a great and refreshing side dish. I have been known to eat it straight out from the jar with a fork from the fridge. I've had Kimchi a few times at Korean restaurants and OMG that stuff is amazing!

    Screw that noise. Their kids annoy the hell out of me, and this is a free way for me to get back at them. Bonus points because my apartment is under an building old code, where a ventilation fan isn't required in the bathroom.

    Hahahahaha. Okay well then, continue eating as you are!

    Kimchi is AWESOME!! Just had some with my Bavarian cheddar smokies for dinner... The other two globs are sauerkraut and Dijon mustard...

    This looks fantastic! Yummo! I need to eat kimchi, I grew up eating it and just don't think to buy it-its been ages. Had some hot sauce sardines the other day..mmm forgot how good those are too! @Gallowmere1984 you're giving some great foodie ideas, I'm looking for marscaponae cheese the next time I am at the store!

    It's spiced and fermented cabbage. Just be careful the first time you ever open a jar. The gas from the fermentation process will cause some pressurized seepage when you first open the lid. I learned that the hard way.
