With Korea and Mexico facing off in a preliminary round soccer match at the Olympics this evening, I made this beef & kimchi burrito in honor of both teams.  On the drive home, I was thinking wistfully that watching the match at Vatos while munching on some kind of Korean-Mexican dish would be great, when I realized that I could do so at home.  The burrito, a frozen item that I’d purchased from Fog City International Café a few months back, I wrapped in foil and popped in the oven on high for about 30 minutes until done.  After sautéeing the kimchi in sesame oil with a splash of soy sauce and sprinkle of sugar, I opened up the burrito, added the kimchi, and rewrapped it.  Not bad.  I was pleased by my cleverness.

As for categorizing the dish by national origin, I’m thinking that only an American would do something like this to bridge the two cuisines.  Anyway, burritos were supposedly invented in America.

Korea and Mexico played to a draw, 0-0.
