'Muchim' is the Korean word for any dish that is made by mixing vegetables and sauce ingredients by hand in a bowl. These dishes are usually whipped up in the kitchen as a quick side dish and are a nice alternative to kimchi when you don't have any in the house. Definitely a useful recipe to have on hand.
5 small cucumbers sliced 1/4"thick
1 T salt
1 t minced garlic
1 T chopped green onion
2 t red chili powder
2 t white vinegar (rice or apple vinegar preferably)
2 t sugar
1 t toasted sesame seeds
1 t sesame oil (optional)
1. Put the cucumber slices and the salt into a bowl and mix around with your hands. Let sit for 5 minutes then squeeze out any excess water that formed.
2. Add the vinegar, red chili pepper, sugar, minced garlic, green onions and mix it around so everything is evenly coated. (add sesame oil if you'd like)
3. Add sesame seeds and it's ready to serve. Will stay good in the fridge for 1 or 2 days.
