Ground Beef and Kimchi!

One of my favorite fermented foods is kimchi! According to wikipedia, it “is a traditional fermented Korean side dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings. It is often described as spicy and sour.” Mmmmmm! Interested yet??? Really, it’s not as bad as it sounds. Just a fair warning, it has a little kick on it, so be ready for the spiciness if you try it.

My gut likes it when I incorporate fermented foods, and so will yours!

Here is a super duper easy recipe that I use when I don’t have a lot of time to cook, or I haven’t prepared anything ahead of time:

1 lb ground beef
1 15 oz jar of kimchi
1 cup of cooked rice (any kind you like) (optional)

Brown the ground beef in a large skillet on medium heat.
Once the beef is cooked, drain and discard the grease.
Add the kimchi and rice to the beef, then cook until it’s well heated. Maybe five minutes or so.

This makes 4 servings. ENJOY!!!

Beef Kimchi

This dish has so much flavor from the kimchi that it doesn’t need any seasoning (in my humble opinion). Go ahead and give this a whirl! Be adventurous, your gut will love you for it!
