Traditional kimchi recipe (Tongbaechu-kimchi: 통배추김치)

This is the classic, spicy, traditional napa cabbage kimchi called tongbaechu-kimchi, aka baechu-kimchi, or pogi-kimchi. But in reality this dish is so common and iconic that most Koreans simply call it “kimchi.” When people talk about kimchi, this is the dish they are referring to.
