Costco Kimchee

Wondering if this is worth a try? Seems like a pretty big jar.....
How do most of you use Kimchee...as a condiment..or in a specific dish..or just with everything?

  1. I've never seen it there but now I will look for it. Thanks for the unintentional but appreciated heads up.

      1. re: mrbigshotno.1

        I didn't take specific note...but would venture a guess of about 2 liters(8 cups)....Kinda a barrel like container..which they have in the refrigerator section. Would occupy a lot of precious space in my Refrig...might be worth it......

        1. re: easily amused

          Is this an in-house brand (i.e. Kirkland), or a national brand like King's Kimchi but in a supersized container?

            I'm going to have to check the branding the next time I am at Costco....really can't recall.

              Costco typically carries Cosmos Kimchi.

              It's pretty good for the price point.

      2. There's this recipe that I tried from this website :

        It's kimchi jigae (pork and kimchi together). You cook them together and it tastes great! In the beginning, it was a bit odd because I've never had cooked kimchi before. But, once you get used to the idea, it's pretty good! I highly recommend this recipe!

          I make fried rice with kimchee and bacon and a little bit of butter. Odd sounding, yes, but it is always snarfed up immediately. Pork and kimchee are meant to be together.

        2. Oh wow! Thanks for the tip. I can't seem to get enough kimchi lately!

          1. With Costco closer to me than the local Korean market (where I'm overwhelmed with variety), Costco's Cosmos kimchee fits the bill. I like it as a condiment...often on rice.
