Sauteed Stir-Fried Kimchi


  • 2 cups Aged Kimchi (Kimchi should be aged and slightly sour)
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
  • Tablespoon Gochugaru (Korean Red Chili Flakes)
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil


  • Measure 2 cups of aged Kimchi. Use a pair of scissors to cut the aged kimchi into small bite-sized pieces.
  • Take out a frying pan. Place it on a medium-heat. Place in some vegetable oil. Once the oil is hot, place in the chopped kimchi. Now add in minced garlic (1 Tablespoon) and stir-fry everything together for a few minutes - or until there is very little kimchi liquid left in the frying pan (reference video).
  • Next, add in Gochugaru (⅓ Tablespoon). (Note: If you want it more spicy, you can add in ½ Tablespoon). Stir-it around and mix it in.
  • Then add in Sugar (1 Tablespoon). Stir-it around and mix it in.
  • Next, add in Sesame Oil (1 Tablespoon). Stir everything one last time and it's done. Serve with hot rice!
