i’ll admit it. there are times when i don’t really feel like spending an hour or two making a spread large enough to feed the russian army. sometimes i just want to cook something quick and easy, and in this weather, the less i use the stove the better.
yesterday was one of those lazy days, and i found myself with an abundance of kimchi on my hands. while normally i would default to kimchi hot pot (one of my favorite autumnal foods in japan), the “hot” part of hot pot didn’t sound that appealing in the 34ºc heat. instead, i decided to go for something with which i could enjoy an ice-cold beer.
and as soon as i thought the words “ice cold beer,” buta-kimchi sprang to mind.
