We teamed up with Heyri Han of @dearsaturdays to feature our Mayocoba beans in this simple, highly addictive kimchi stew. The mild, creamy Mayocoba pair perfectly with the bold, briny fermented cabbage. Let time do its magic and you'll have these creamy and flavorful beans soaked in the goodness of jjigae broth.
