10 Minute Kimchi-Jjigae (Korean Kimchi Stew)
Kimchi-Jjigae is a stew made with aged kimchi and soft tofu-- it's the ultimate savory comfort food.
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 can SPAM cubed
- ½ Onion sliced
- 2 tbsp Sesame Oil
- 1 cup Aged kimchi chopped
- ½ cup Kimchi brine
- 1 cup Water
- 1 package Soft tofu cubed
- 2 stalks Green Onion sliced
In a medium-sized heavy-bottomed pot, add the sesame oil. On medium-high heat, cook the sliced onion and cubed SPAM for about 1 minute or until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant.
Add the chopped kimchi and saute for 2 minutes to caramelize the kimchi.
To the pot, pour the kimchi brine + water and bring it to a rolling boil. Once the soup comes to a boil, add the cubed soft tofu and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Add the sliced green onions on top to garnish. Enjoy with rice!
