This is traditionally a Korean dish made with Kimchi and marinated beef...I am not a big Kimchi fan...I like this alternative.

  • sesame seeds

  1. Put a cup of cooked rice in each bowl.
  2. Saute zucchini, ginger and garlic in sesame oil over medium heat about 5 mins or until a little brown but not mushy.
  3. Remove zucchini from pan and put in on corner of bowl on top of rice.
  4. Keep pan hot over medium-high and add kale and 1 Tbsp water. Stir kale until wilted only about 30 seconds.
  5. Add kale to another corner of bowl.

I have a very good friend from South Korea.

I told him once I'd eaten "Kimchi" and he started laughing.

He said "I'll bet it's the stuff you get at a Korean BBQ", and I said yes.

He told real Kimchi, like his grandma made, who send a round eyes screaming out of the room.

He brought some in one day, and as soon as he opened the container, I just about lost my lunch!

It's definitely an "acquired taste"!
