I probably am not the only one to think of this, but I did dream it up myself, so I'm taking credit.
A few weeks ago, a couple of serious meat talents got together to practice some skills on the grill and in the Dutch oven. (I am not naming names. You bastards know who you are.)
These great people — I really like them — made a public, online, impromptu invitation to a mutual friend of ours to join them. I just KNEW my invitation was coming! I even decided what food I would make to bring.
Well, I guess that email got swept under the rug, because I had to stay home and eat canned beans all alone on the day of the gathering.
Here's what you didn't get: Kimchi cole slaw. Yes, and it was delicious. Fiery, nasty, awesome. Homemade kimchi in there, as a matter of fact. Aren't you sorry now?
Well, here's how to put some together yourself. Slice "normal" cabbage (round, smooth kind), both colors if ya got 'em. Slice some of your kimchi — not a lot, it's hot, but you guys like hot stuff, so use your judgment — and stir that in with some of the juice.
With me so far? You bastards. Then scoop out some tahini. You don't have to mix it up if it's separated; just grab some oil from the jar, and some good solid lumps too. Stir that in with the cabbagey ribbons.
Finally, add a dash of vinegar. I used rice vinegar, to keep it a little Asian-y. Taste, adjust, enjoy.
It sounds good, doesn't it? It's THIS good: You ever do a popper and your head just snaps back (good thing you're in a chair) and you are washed with pleasure? That good.
