In The Kitchen: KIMCHEE FRIED RICE


Ingredients:

2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp. Sesame Oil
1 Can of Spam
2 Cups Kimchi
1 Tsp. Grated Ginger
2 Tbsp. Oil
8 Cups cooked (day old) Rice
8 oz. Imitation Crab Stick/Surimi
1 Cup Peas
2 Large Onion
4-6 Eggs
Non-Stick Spray
Cracked Black Pepper to taste
2 Stalks of Green Onion
Furikake


Dice your onions.


Add in your oil and your onions and saute.


While your onions are cooking you can make your Spam "marinade".

Combine your Sesame Oil, Ginger, Soy Sauce & fresh cracked Black Pepper.


After your onions have sweated for a little bit add in your rice. 

I leave the rice spread out on the pan and let it "fry" for 10 mins and then I'll flip it over and let it "fry" for another 10 mins this makes it really crispy.

I like to use day old rice and if I know I'm going to use the rice to make fried rice I'll also use less water when I'm cooking it initially.  By utilizing these tactics you end up with much crispier fried rice.


Dice your Spam into bite sized pieces.


Add the diced Spam into your "marinade" and combine until it's evenly coated and let it sit for about 10 mins.


Take your Kimchi and chop into small pieces.


In a separate pan fry your Spam and chopped Kimchi together until the juices have cooked down.  

The Hubs prefers crispy fried rice but I know a lot of people like their Kimchi fried rice "wet" if you do then you don't need to let the juices cook down. 


Add your Spam & Kimchi mixture into your rice and combine together.


Dice your crab stick into bite sized pieces.


Chop your green onions and leave to the side for later.


Add in your diced crab stick & peas and mix into your fried rice.


Wipe the pan you used to fry the Spam & Kimchi with a paper towel.  

Then spray some Non-stick cooking spray.


Fry an over easy egg.

In the above ingredients I listed 4-6 eggs because it'll depend on how many people you'll be serving. The fried rice cooks out to about 4-6 servings.  So just fry 1 egg per person and you can fry them all at once on a larger pan. 


Pack your fried rice tightly into a bowl.


Place your plate on top of your bowl and flip over onto your counter top.


Voila!


Top with your fried egg.

Garnish with your chopped green onions from earlier and furikake and you're ready to eat! :)

  6. looks lovely! i always loved kimchi fried rice, now i can try to make it! I'm so bad with making fried rice though, i always burn the rice, and theres not enough muscles in my arm to constantly turn the rice over.
    That runny egg looks so yummy, that's one thing i'm terrible with, i always end up burning my egg because i can never get teh temperture right and i'm afraid of flying oil
