Kimchi Stew (Quick And Easy With Tuna)

Kimchi Stew is one of the most loved dishes in Korea. No appetite? This sure will fix it. No problem finishing a big bowl of rice with Kimchi Stew! As long as you have nice fermented Kimchi, you can't go wrong with this one. Stews are supposed to be a salty dish you eat little by little with rice. It's usually placed in the middle of the table and shared with a few people. Soups are more of an individual dish that is less salty and usually larger quantity is served in individual bowls.
Ingredients
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Canned tuna 4 Gram (1 - 2 Cans, 2 Grams each)
  Kimchi 3 Cup (48 tbs), cut into about 2 inches long pieces
  Kimchi juice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Water 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
  Red chili pepper flakes 2 Tablespoon (Optional)

GETTING READY
1. Place a stone bowl on the stove, to preheat it. (Kimchi stew would be served in a stone bowl)

MAKING
2. In a pot, saute 1 can of tuna (you can add another can if desired) with 1 tablespoon of butter on high heat. Stir fry the tuna for about 3 minutes, making sure it does not stick to the bottom of the pot.

4. Add water and kimchi juice. Stir and let it cook for a few minutes.

Love Kimchee stew! I have never had it with tuna, usually pork or other meats. It is amazing with Korean rice-white or brown is good. Is there anyway to make this low sodium?
