A Korean restaurant recipe. I submitted this before trying it; after having it last night to accompany a pork and vegetable stir fry, UI can say it is really very good, similar to a kimchi. We used home-ground chiles, a blend of guajillo and ancho, so it wasn't very hot. Use hotter chiles if you want more spiciness.
