Hello everyone ❤️ Today I’ll share about my go-to dish, the dish when I’m lazy to cook something extravagant, or when I just want something simple, delicious and easy. When I invite my friends over, I also cook this dish very often. Let me reveal it….
It’s Kimchi fried rice! ❤️ Kimchi fried rice is a dish that is so simple, so delicious, and yet so easy to customize depending on what ingredients you have in your fridge. Topped with a fried egg, your meal is complete!
Only two ingredients are needed – kimchi and rice! Of course, that’s the 2 basic ingredients. Some other ingredients that you can add to supplement are luncheon meat, chicken, sausages, fishcakes and mushrooms, or any other ingredients as you would like. Usually I add two or three more ingredients to not overpower the kimchi taste. It’s really up to you to choose which ingredients you would like.
My personal favorite is adding luncheon meat into the rice as it gives off a really good taste. Just cut the luncheon meat into small cubes and pan fry them till they are crispy. After that, add in chopped kimchi and stir fry for a few minutes. Add in cooked rice and mix, season with soy sauce and sugar. For those who would like your rice to be spicier, just add gochujang (Korean red pepper paste). And… it’s done! It’s really super easy – it only takes around 5-10 minutes to cook?
Usually when I cook kimchi fried rice, I prepare extra portions to leave for the next day. I just throw it in the microwave for a few minutes or pan fry it again to make it hot. This serves as my lunch or dinner. Killing 2 birds with one stone yeah 😋
After cooking it for many times, I do not really follow any recipe – I just season it to my taste. However, for those of you who want a recipe, Maangchi’s recipe is a good guide! The link is https://www.maangchi.com/recipe/kimchi-bokkeumbap.
