Tuna and Kimchee Stew (Kimchi Jjigae)

Another great use of kimchi is this beloved Kimchi Jjigae (stew). This modern twist on a traditional dish uses good-quality canned tuna in place of meat or fresh seafood and is ready in 30 minutes. It's a great way to get authentic Korean flavor on the table fast.
