Ok, so remember I talked here about my ‘addiction’ to YouTube videos? Well, it has not been getting any better. I’ve now fallen into love with another South Korean variety show called ‘2 days 1 night’.

It’s about a group of celebrities taking trips all over South Korea while performing missions to earn rewards and avoid punishments. It’s one of the funniest variety shows ever (and I’ve seen plenty).

The celebrities frequently fail their missions which is the cause of me laughing my bottoms off. Failed missions = no elaborate feasts. Losers would be given rice and kimchi. It may look pitiful, but when they put the rice and kimchi on a griddle and end up with delicious kimchi fried rice… oh my heavens.

I WAS HOOKED….  to the show and the kimchi fried rice.

I love kimchi. I always have a jar of it in the refrigerator. No need to mention how delicious and nutritious it is. I also always have eggs in the refrigerator. I love them to death.

With kimchi and eggs always available, a healthy, delicious spicy kimchi fried rice with sunny side eggs is just a 10 minute stir-fry away. Add some oh so good pork belly and I have a happy tummy.

Besides, with spring just around the corner, all that chocolate cake and fried chicken in my tummy has to go (for now). It’s time for some spring cleaning.

Yup.

The house…. and my tummy. 🙂

Tips:

1. Rice: For kimchi fried rice, I use freshly cooked sticky short grain rice. Yup. I like it slightly soft and moist for some reason. For other types of fried rice, I’d use Jasmine (long grain) overnight rice. Choose whatever your preference is.

2. Eggs: I use Eggland’s Best eggs. They’re an excellent source of Vitamin D and E and they have more than double the Omega-3 than regular eggs. In terms of the kind of eggs, some people like sunny side eggs with different consistency in the yolk while others may like over easy eggs.

3. You can choose not to add the pork belly (and replace with tofu) for a vegetarian meal, or you could add other meat or seafood of choice. I’ve made beef, shrimp and tuna kimchi fried rice and all taste super delicious.

Author:
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: Korean
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 6 - 9 oz skinless pork belly (1¼ - 1½ cups), cut into ¼" x ¼"
  • 1 - 1½ cups tightly packed chopped kimchi
  • 1 tbs kimchi juice
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce
  • 3 cups cooked rice (short grain Korean or Japanese rice) or 1 cup uncooked
  • 1 - 2 tbs gochujang (Korean red chili paste)
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 large Eggland's Best eggs, sunny side up

  • Garnish
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • Nori Flakes (Roasted Seaweed)
  • White sesame seeds
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)
Directions
  1. Over medium high heat, heat the oil in a wok or a large pan. Once almost smoking, add the onions and fry until translucent. Add the garlic and fry until they soften.
  2. Push the onions and garlic aside and sear the pork on all sides. Once the pork is almost cooked, turn the heat to high. Add the kimchi, kimchi juice and soy sauce. Stir to combine. The pork will start to absorb the flavor.
  3. Once the pork is cooked through, add the rice, chili paste and sugar. Fry to combine. This fried rice (unlike other fried rice) is meant to be on the moist side. Taste and add salt according to your preference. Swirl in the sesame oil and give it one last stir. Garnish and serve with delicious runny yolk sunny side Eggland's Best eggs.
Notes
1. How much pork you add will be dependent on how much meat you like in your fried rice.

    We love kimchi (and Korean food…and really Asian food in general). We’ve tried kimchi pancakes but not kimchi rice. So we will definitely try this. Pinned for later! (Your photos are gorgeous)

    I love kimchi fried rice, it’s so easy and so, so delicious and flavourful. And I love serving it with a sunny side up on top too! Bursting the yolk is so much joy hehe 😉

      Nice that you’re training em young to eat and enjoy spicy food Bobbi. My hubs cringe at that thought. Sometimes, it feels like I married the wrong guy just cause he doesn’t like spicy food. Lol.

    Ah yum, I need this in my life right now! I am actually not a fan of pork belly at all – but I can so see it working some serious magic in this dish! And there’s kimchi, so it has to be good 🙂

      Neither is my hubs Donna. He has no choice. I cook, he eats. :p You can definitely replace it with something you love… like beef. Yum too!!! The kimchi fried rice is just too good to pass up.

    That egg looks perfect! This whole dish is really beautiful. I love your site and your photos–can’t wait to have a look around! East and Southeast Asian flavors are my absolute favorite. I just can’t get enough of them!

      Thanks Dana. You’re too kind. I love SE and E Asian food to death. Literally. When I was living in Chicago, I nearly died due to the lack of Asian food (well, compared to what we have here in L.A at least). :p
