Thinthukgirl’s Sweet Kim Chee Relish

I live in Woodside, near the amazing Korean grocery store Han Ah Reum. It’s summer, and I decided to get some Italian sausages from Ceriello in Grand Central Market, which is along my commute home. I decided to spice it up a bit. Since I don’t know the PDT number, but the New York Magazine photo of the PDT Chang dog has been burned onto my brain since I first saw it, I decided to try to make my own kim chee relish. The results were delicious IMHO! Try for yourself… (Pictured above with homemade chex mix.) This recipe makes ALOT of relish.

Instructions

  1. 1Dice red onion coarsely (3/4 inch chunks).
  2. 2Slice kim chee coarsely also.
  3. 3Sautee red onion in a little bit of olive oil until just turning soft and fragrant.
  4. 4Add sliced kim chee. Combine with onion and sautee until mixture is red, slightly sauce-like, and soft enough to puree.
  5. 5Cool for one minute and pour or scoop into a blender (I used an immersion blender with the tall measuring cup it came with). For every 1 ½ cups of kim chee/onion mixture add 1 tbsp of ketchup and 1 tbsp of plum sauce.
  6. 6Pulse several times until mixture is the texture you want.
  7. 7I served with a Ceriello sweet Italian sausage with fennel on a toasted potato hot dog roll, but imagine it would also be good with rice and bulgolgi.
