Kimchi, a staple in Korean cuisine, is a traditional spicy side dish of salted and fermented vegetables, such as napa cabbage and Korean radish. You can think of it as sauerkraut with Korean spices.

Here’s more about kimchi, and one of our favorite brands available in stores.

There are as many recipes as there are cooks, incorporating seasonings such as gochugaru, spring onions, garlic, ginger and jeotgal. While the recipe takes time to develop, here’s a simplified recipe.

In this recipe (photos #1 and #2), Chef Lee Anne Wong adds a Korean spin to coleslaw to create a creamy-spicy-crunchy topping for Snake River Farms’ American Wagyu dogs.

  • 1 tablespoon kochujang red pepper paste
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely minced ginger
  • 1-1/2 cups napa cabbage, julienned
  • 1 cup store-bought kimchi, drained, julienned
  • Garnish: 5 tablespoons packaged French fried onions or fried shallots
  • Garnish: 1/4 cup green onions, sliced thin across

  • 1 pound package Snake River Farms American Wagyu Hot Dogs

    2. PLACE the napa cabbage and kimchi in a bowl and toss with the dressing until thoroughly mixed. Refrigerate until needed.

    3. PREPARE the hot dogs and rolls as desired. To assemble, place hot dogs in rolls and top with the kimchi slaw. Garnish with the scallions and fried onions/shallots.
