Kimcheese Rice Patties, Kimchee + Cheese = ^.^

When Kimchee meet cheese, it is heaven on earth. I call it Kimcheese.
As you know they both are fermented food, one is from cabbage and the other from milk of cow, goat, and/or sheep. I don't think Mr. Cow ever eats cabbages but perhaps he wouldn't mind having a blind date with Ms. Cabbage in the rice park. Kaboom! You won't believe how divinely delicious they are together.
My brilliant inspiration of putting these two fermented god and goddess together came from the Italian risotto ball I had at my local Neapolitan pizzeria called Pupatella. The true Neapolitan style pizza I love.
When I bite into a risotto ball as an appetizer, something just clicked me as an light bulb. "Why don't I mix Kimchee with cheese to make rice balls?" So I did.
Ooooh! you will love it, my dears... 
They are so meant to be together. Why on earth did I not try that before?

 So here I am... urging you to try this recipe. I will give you two options to choose from.
One is deep fried and the other pan seared. They both are good. The deep fried one offers irresistible crispness while pan seared one offers more aromatic substance to overall flavor. You will need well fermented cabbage Kimchee to bring out the full flavor.
I will share with you my East meets West version of rice patties. Kimchee rocks!


Revealing my glorious ingredients!
Mozzarella cheese, Feta cheese, Kimchee, ground pork, parsley, green onion, eggs, flour, and panko crumbs. 

You will also need some cooked short grain rice and Parmesan cheese.

Squeeze your Kimchee to death to remove their juice.
Parental discretion advised. Looks a little R-rated on this scene. Scary...

 Chop Ms. Cabbage as fine as you can.

Saute the piggies in the hot oil until they are no longer shy in pink...

Chop the greens...

Add the chopped Kimchee and fry until it gets softened, about 6-7 minutes over medium heat.
When the Kimchee gets nice and soft, add green onion and parsley. 
Remove from the heat. Let it cool down for a few minutes.

 Add Mozzarella cheese and feta cheese, stir well.

 Add Parmesan cheese and pinch salt to rice and mix well.

Take some rice onto your hand and flatten it. Scoop the Kimchee mixture over rice.

Take more rice and cover the top. Gently squish it to mold into shape

My brain was tuned to a play-mode that moment so I made into triangle shape. 
If you want some fun, try star shape to see if it works...

 Prepare your coatings for deep frying.

 Coat with flour, egg, and panko crumbs.

Deep fry them, babe!  about 170ºC until NGB (Nice and Goden Brown).
Version 1 finished.

Version 2 : Want to know how you can pan sear these patties? Super easy...

 Just press onto Parmesan cheese on both sides.

Sear with a little bit of oil over hot skillet until NGB. You better serve these patties when hot.
Leftovers aren't that great unfortunately.

"Pretty Darn Good!"
A praise from my NOT so Kimchee-lover husband.
"You can totally sell these!"
He cheered me as he was devouring the patty.
I felt good and accomplished, then, made me wonder...
If a man ever tells the truth in regards of food his wife made.
"Did he really like it or did he just say that to make me feel better?"
I hope someone can tell me the real truth.

Hope you like them...

Kimcheese Rice Patties
(김치즈 주먹밥, Kimcheese jumuk bap)
makes 6-8 patties

1/2 lb fermented cabbage kimchee
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/3 lb ground pork
1 green onion, chopped
3 Tbsp parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3/4 C shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
3 cups cooked short grain rice
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
pinch salt
flour, eggs, and panko bread crumbs for coating
oil for deep frying and/or pan sear

Squeeze out the kimchee to remove its juice, chop finely. 
Heat the skillet over medium heat, add oil and saute ground pork until brown. Add kimchee and continue to saute until kimchee gets softened, about 6-7 minutes. Remove from heat, add black pepper, green onion and parsley, toss. Rest the mixture to cool down for a few minutes. Add mozzarella cheese and feta cheese, mix well, and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine rice with 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese and pinch salt.
Grease your hand with a little oil.  Scoop some rice, about 2 Tbsp, on the palm of your hand and flatten it with the other hand. Put 1 1/2 Tbsp of kimchee mixture on top of the rice. cover with more rice over the kimchee and make sure to cover the kimchee completely. Gently squish the rice patties to make into desired shapes.
For Deep frying, coat the patties with flour, egg and panko breadcrumbs. Deep fry in 170ºC oil until golden brown.
For pan seared, press the patties onto the rest of the grated Parmesan cheese both sides. Heat a little oil in the skillet and sear the patties until it creates golden crust, about 3 minutes on each side.

 Note : I don't mind sharing my personal recipe with anyone but I would love to know whom I am sharing with.  Please, leave a comment if you are printing this recipe. Thank you.

Kimcheese is a good name! :D Will definitely try out your patties - can't choose between pan-fried and fried, think I shall try both!

Maybe you can just mix rice and cheese into balls and fry them. That would make brilliant snack!

Hi, I managed to buy some shop made kimchee for this recipe (fresh I think as it expires in a few weeks) , but couldn't find the fermented ones. Do you think I should just use the fresh kimchee like it is, or let it go by it's use by date to ferment a bit?? There isn't too much juice in the box I bought last night.. Thanks!! =)

Hi Holly,

I tried them last night, and I used long grain rice instead of short grain rice as I had lots of it left over, but unfortuately it would not stick together properly when I formed the patties! I manage to make 2 and deep fry, but there was too much rice to meat ratio, so we had to spoon some meat mixture on top of the patties to eat! Nevertheless they were delicious, and next time I get my hands on some short grain rice, I will attempt to make them again! Thanks again for sharing this recipe!
Tonight I am trying your steamed egg recipe, I found a jar of salted shrimps when I went to buy kimchee. =D

Yes, you will definitely need to use short grain with any rice patties or balls. Long grain rice is too fluffy for the job. Your second attempt will come out much better. I am glad that you liked it.

Hi Jaime

I glimpsed your blog and saw how you made the patties. What a brilliant idea
to mix bulgogi and kimchee with rice! Thanks for trying and I am glad that
you enjoyed it. Also hope you enjoy every moment in Korea.

I really like this recipe and will definitely try to make it as soon as I can. Your blog is great and your photos are awesome (lighting and setup - top notch). Not everyone can or is willing to take step by step photos of recipes, but the effort is greatly appreciated by fellow foodies and cooks. Keep up the good work! :)

This will be the perfect dish to make for my boyfriend, an Italian-American who got so hooked up with kimchee I introduced to him when we just started dating. Thank you so much for the detail recipe with beautiful pictures.

wow! i just happened onto your site while searching for recipes for an american friend, and i saw this and your rice ball recipes. you know what? my mom makes CHEESY RICE BALLS for my ridiculously picky daughter's lunch!

she mixes the rice (brown rice with black beans) with sesame oil, salt & pepper, rolls into balls, and then rolls the balls in parmesan cheese.

when she first made them, i thought she was insane, but then i realized that the balls were insanely good.

You can't go wrong with cheese and rice. They go so well together.
