Key Ingredients in This Recipe

  • Kimchi – Kimchi is a staple in Korean cooking. Salted, chili spiced vegetables, traditionally Napa cabbage, are fermented. Combining the spicy kimchi slaw with the sweet soy glaze makes for some “next level” hot dogs that everyone is sure to enjoy.
  • Hot dog – I use fully cooked beef hot dogs in this recipe. Since the hot dogs are already cooked through, they just need to be reheated and cooked until the glaze comes together.
  • Soy sauce – I use reduced sodium soy sauce so that I can control the amount of salt in the recipe, adding more if needed.

How to Make Soy Glazed Korean-Inspired Kimchi Hot Dogs

For the soy glazed hot dogs:

  1. Make the glaze. In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and sugar until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Heat the hot dogs. Heat a medium sauté pan over medium heat add the hot dogs and cook until heated through and lightly browned, about 3 minutes.
  3. Glaze the hot dogs. Turn the heat down to medium-low and add the soy sauce mixture to the pan. Use tongs to rotate the hot dogs and continue to simmer until the sauce thickens and glazes the hot dogs, about 3 minutes. Remove to a plate and let cool.

For the kimchi slaw:

  1. Toss the slaw. In a medium mixing bowl toss the kimchi, cabbage, green onion, cilantro, sriracha and sugar until combined.

For serving:

  1. Make the sauce. In a small bowl stir together the sour cream, lime juice and one tablespoon of cool water until completely combined.
  2. Assemble and serve. Add the hot dogs to the toasted buns and top with slaw, cilantro, lime sour cream and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
