Aged Kimchi and Pork Belly 묵은지 삼겹살

Since we are back after a long pause of updates, this entry is to explain and emphasize one of the menus we introduced earlier in the previous blog below. The menu is called 묵은지 삼겹살 (Mook-eun-ji Sam-kyop-sal)

As you know, kimchi helps appetizing the meals and while eating with oily food such as pork belly, in this case, kimchi helps reduce the oil from the pork. However, the kimchi that are use in this menu are unique with special point, which we would like to point out to you ^^*

묵은지 (Mook-eun-ji) is known as an aged kimchi. Aged kimchi are simply kimchi that are fermented for a long period of time. Since in Korea, kimchi are widely eaten by Koreans in every meal, there is a period of time during winter that people would make kimchi. These aged kimchi are special kimchi that would get fermented throughout the winter days. All the seasonings are well absorbed into the vegetables and creates a strong taste.

Next time you think of eating pork belly, but don't forget to ask for 묵은지 :)
