So i played a little copycat from Mr T's post and took a stab at this homemade Kimchi, it was delicious! Here is the original post http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/140989/kimchi-quick-hot-pickled I altered mine a little bit, i added half a large red onion so i went a little heavier on the ingredients - 2 TBS red wine vinegar - 1 clove of garlic minced - 2 tsp sesame oil - 1 whole cuc. - 1/2 large red onion finely sliced - 1 giant Thai chili from my garden minced - 1 tsp sugar - 2 tsp Kosher salt (didn't have pickling salt) super thinly sliced the cucs on my new mandolin (this thing is great!), halved and thinly sliced the onion. Into a mixing bowl and tossed with salt for 20 mins. Then added the rest of the ingredients and let sit and mellow for about 15mins. Then ate it up with a left over steak i made the other night! I will definitely become a usual goto for a side! All into the bowl! My own variation of the redneck pickle press! haha after 20 mins, then rinsed in a strainer to get the salt off All plated up!
