HB or someone, I am looking for a recipe and I think it's Korean.
It is called Bahn Ma or something like that.  It's a sandwich with ground meat and some pickled something or other.  It was very spicy and delicious.  Our natural market had it as a special and I am intrigued and would love to know how to make it or at least to know what the real name of it is so I can order it if I ever come across a Korean restaurant.

Never heard of it, but I think if you Google "bahn mi", you might find what you're looking for.

Ha ha!  I guess the reason you've never heard of it is because it's Vietnamese and not Korean!!! ;D
Still, you should try it.

Nice pics.  I never add the salt brine back to the mix.  Seems to me this would make it awful salty.  My MIL has even gotten the leaves too salty even after rinsing so she's taken measures to make it less salty.  One method she uses is adding a thin flour and water paste to the kimchee when it's all finished.  Everything else in the method mimics my MILs technique - except for the choice of containers.  She always uses steel bowls and glass jars.

I have used the turnip green kimchi recipe last summer on chard, swiss chard, mustard greens, brocorob greens, and various other American greens that were given to me by a friend.  They were all delicious cooked with chicken.  The mustard greens were hubby's and my favorite.

I also helped a friend make up some shredded turnip kimchi out of diakon radish.  It was good, but tasted very radishy.  The Korean turnips are better, but the diakon worked.

Yaki Mandoo ;D {yaw kee' mon' doo}

(Korean Dumplings - very similar to fried wontons)

I love these things, but have only ever had them frozen from the Asian Market.  I tried my hand at them today and they were fantastic.

2 lbs ground beef
1 cup water
1/2 cup white flour

3-4 cups of sour kimchi rinsed 

(MIL uses the stuff that's too sour to eat)
I would surmise you could substitute any veggies you like but haven't tried it.  I used sour cucumber kimchi and some sour Korean bean sprouts I had in the back of the fridge.


Put the beef, flour and water in a frying pan and stir constantly until brown.  The flour, water and stirring make the meat a nice smooth consistency quite different than just plain browned ground beef.

My MIL says that she makes the filling with raw burger and no flour, but she also shallow pan fries them which takes longer and is more likely to cook the meat. 

Chop veggies finely.  I threw mine in the food processor and blended into mush.  Don't forget to rinse your sour kimchi.  Honestly, I don't think you have to, but the flavor is quite different and MIL told me too.  ;D  Mix well with the meat.  Spoon about 1 teaspoon of meat mixture into middle of wanton wrappers (round or square).  Wet edges of one half of wrapper and fold over (if using squares, fold to make triangles).  Crimp with fork or pinch with fingers to seal. 

Deep fry at 400 degrees for 3-4 minutes. 

Mix 1/2 white vinegar with 1/2 soy sauce for dipping.

You can spread on a cookie sheet (not touching) and put in the freezer for a couple of hours.  Then take them off the sheet and put into a freezer container.  This prevents them from sticking together so that you can just take a few out of the bag and fry them up without breaking or tearing the wrappers.
