One of my favorite side dishes to eat with Korean barbecue is geotjeori! Crispy and fresh, it always tastes delicious with samgyeopsal (grilled pork belly). Try making this baechu geotjeori recipe. In English, this is known as fresh kimchi or fresh cabbage kimchi!
Napa cabbage is a variety of Chinese cabbage native to the Beijing region. Famously, this vegetable has a long barrel shape with a mildly sweet flavor. In South Korea, people refer to napa cabbage as ‘baechu’ (배추) and is used in many important cultural dishes.
