I have been making this dish for years and me and my family never get tired of it! Be sure to use very-well marinated kimchi instead of the kimchi that are newly-made. However, if that's all you have, this dish will still turn out to be good (: Also, the butter might be a lot, but it prevents the rice to stick to the bottom of the pan. You may use oil instead of butter if you wish.
- 2 tablespoons butter (if more is needed, feel free)
- 1 cup onion, diced
- 1 cup ham (If you're a vegetarian or you just don't want to use meat, feel free to just use vegetables. Korean ) or 1 cup pork (If you're a vegetarian or you just don't want to use meat, feel free to just use vegetables. Korean ) or 1 cup any other meat, cooked and diced (If you're a vegetarian or you just don't want to use meat, feel free to just use vegetables. Korean )
- 2 cups kim chee, cut into small pieces
- 1⁄2 cup kim chee liquid
- 4 cups cooked rice (Me and my family eat sticky rice)
- 1 -2 teaspoon dashi stock
- sesame oil (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Heat wok over high heat, melting the butter.
- Add onion and saute for 1 minute, then add the meat. Saute for another minute.
- Add kimchi (but not the liquid) and saute for 2 minutes or until the kimchi turns slightly brown, but not burnt.
- Add the kimchi liquid to the wok, stir, then add the rice. Stir all together until the rice is fully coated with the kimchi mixture.
- Turn off the stove, then add dashi stock to the fried rice and mix well.
- Enjoy! You may also add scrambled eggs (2 - 3 eggs) to the fried rice, or fry an egg and add on top of the fried rice in an individual bowl.
