    Genius idea!

    Chef John this is a first for me, you and Kim-chi! I have now watched approximately 50 of your recipe's and I almost fell on the floor when you didn't add even a little itty, bitty, teeny, weeny, smidgen to a whole _am handful of cayenne pepper! I'm making a doctors appointment immediately after this to get my hearing checked as this has to be wrong. Actually kidding aside this food of your conjuring looks incredible as I bet it did taste incredible to. Also of coincidence is the fact that I told my wife to pick up a corned beef this week shopping as we have three small heads of cabbage from the final cutting of her garden this year, and I have decided to cook them up in this way. Thank you for another great video Chef.

    Nice variation. I cooked this only last week but with carrot, celery, whole black pepper, cinnamon stick, few cloves, an onion quartered, a few whole garlic cloves, 4 whole dried red chillies and bunch of thyme for 2 hours. Nice!

    Third best vegetable! Chef John, how could you?!

  • Leo Scheibelhut on February 22, 2020

    Heresy! Heresy! How dare you ruin corned beef with celery and carrots. The kimchee was brilliant though.

  • Alan von Au***** on February 22, 2020

    Quite a creative variation of the traditional recipe. Bravo!

  • Seth L on February 22, 2020

    Whoever got this idea is a genius

    Do you think this would work in a slow cooker?

  • Chul-Jae Lee on February 22, 2020

    Iā€™ve been thinking about cooking corned beef and kimchi together but every st. Patrickā€™s Day I ended up cooking the traditional way because I didnā€™t want to ruin my once a year boiled dinner by experimenting. But now with your recipe and tips, I can try. Thank you. Btw, we Koreans usually cook pork belly with very aged kimchi.

  • John Santiago on February 22, 2020

    The way u talk in ur videos is hilarious

  • Mandy The Runner Up on February 22, 2020

    Him getting the Kimchi out of the jar made me think of afterbirth ….

  • yermanoh on February 22, 2020

    celery is evil and should never be used in cooking.jussayin

  • Milk Dud Nips on February 22, 2020

    This sounds so good.

  • The Flannel Dragonfly on February 22, 2020

    Looks yummy šŸ€

  • gravecactus on February 22, 2020

    i do love carrots and onions

  • Kori Skene on February 22, 2020

    The corned beef looks suprisingly delicious! Im not typically a picky eater but I'm yet to try kimchi because I struggle to get past the way it looks. I do love cabbage, though.

  • Anthony Nagatani on February 22, 2020

    Chef John,

    How would you alter this recipe if you wanted to do it sous vide?


    Thanks so much!!!

  • Arnaud CĆ“tĆ© on February 22, 2020

    Wishes against humanity would be a great game!

  • Michael Laughlin on February 22, 2020

    I made this this weekend and it was mind boggling good. It really works well. By far my favorite style so far.

  • Kerry Lawrence on February 22, 2020

    This was not only easy to make and pay out was far worth the effort

  • brikrantz1 on February 22, 2020

    Hey, Chef John! Excellent idea. My wife makes homemade kimchi all the time and we usually end up giving half of it away. I used a point end beef brisket and the cool thing was being able to insert a layer of kimchi into the middle of the brisket. Other than that, I used chicken stock for some added liquid about halfway through. Delicious as can be, and my wife used the dregs for kimchi soup with rice. How about a Food Wishes kimchi recipe? I'll let you know how my wife does it.

  • Andi Flanagan on February 22, 2020

    I have some Brussel Sprout Kimchi I just got done fermenting, AND, some homemade Corned Moose, from last year's hunt. Oh my! Thy will be done.

  • markspc1 on February 22, 2020

    Looks delicious.
    Your corned beef looks so pink I guess there is a ton of sodium nitrate/nitrite enough to make some black powder he-he.

  • Patrick Chadd on February 22, 2020

    I made this tonight with the Corned Round of Beef – SO AMAZING – and definitely better than the corned brisket if you can get it. I found my Corned Round of Beef at BJ's. I added new potatoes, real baby carrots and some VERY fermented kimchi I had in the fridge. I did it in my Instant Pot so it was ready in 50 minutes – so very, very delicious! Tomorrow Corned Beef Kimchi Fried Rice with the poached egg!!! Thanks Chef John!!!!

  • Hannah Borden on February 22, 2020

    We made this yesterday for St. Patrick's Day and it was amazing! It was so flavorful and tender. Way to hit another one out of the park Chef John!!!

    1 Corinthians 6:9-11
    9. Or do you not know that the UNrighteous will "NOT" inherit the kingdom of God ?
    Do not be deceived:
    neither the sexually immoral,
    nor fornicators,
    nor idolaters,
    nor adulterers,
    nor homosexuals,
    nor thieves,
    nor sodomites,
    nor covetious,
    nor drunkards,
    nor revilers,
    nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

    11. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of our Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of God.

    All must REPENT from Sin to enter thy kingdom.
    Jesus Christ is the "Only" way to the Father in Heaven.

  • brendan kennedy on February 22, 2020

    I just did this in an instant pot, thank you!

  • mike patrick on February 22, 2020

    I made Kimchi CB this evening. I've never eaten such tasty CB. I substituted cabbage for carrots. I am, after all, the Omar Sharif of my corned beef. Can't wait for lunch tomorrow.

  • Jeremiah Goerdt on February 22, 2020

    How did your house smell after this one? šŸ˜›

    P.S. You're a genius. This looks phenomenal

  • joapps on February 22, 2020

    for enhanced flavor, add 1 tblspn sesame seed oil and a touch of salt (to taste).

    also (optional but to enhance even more)
    1 tblspn red pepper flakes
    2 teaspn go-chu-jang paste (if available)
    1 teaspn soysauce

    spam or chunks of pork pieces are a good/ better substitute for the corn beef

  • Eclipse on February 22, 2020

    Oh I need this on my youtube channel to go along with my beer…my dog beer

  • Mo n on February 22, 2020

    OMG… I was like what about the first jar too!

  • Jeannie Nelson on February 22, 2020

    I love kimchi, but my husband doesn't like hot spicy food. Would the kimchi still be hot after cooking it this way?

  • dianne saternow on February 22, 2020

    Where's the regular cabbage?? hummmmm?

  • Virginia Hoffman on February 22, 2020

    I have a very strong bias towards Kimchi.

  • Teverz on February 22, 2020

    Koreans cook kimchi this way?

  • Ɔolian Skinner on February 22, 2020

    Two jars of this ^ brand Kimchi cost me more than the 4 Lbs of corned beef!

  • ra to on February 22, 2020

    ever time I see your cooking how do's I feel hungry. good job!
