Yields: 4 cups** This dish was inspired by the Kims, a Korean family who attended a church our dad was pastoring in Mineral Wells, Texas. I always loved being invited to meals in their home, as Mrs. Kim was an excellent cook. I haven’t seen her in years but I’d love for her to taste this dish! I’m sure she would give me her “stamp of approval!” One thing I’m sure she would tell me though,” it’s not hot enough . . . so go ahead, be brave and add more of those red pepper flakes! –Brenda Walsh
