The recipe title says it all. I remember eating this all the time as a kid. I think my mother concocted it for me one day when she was busy. Apparently other Korean kids have eaten this, too. I was hooked at the time! I now realize that it isn't healthy at all, but that doesn't stop me from occassionally indulging when there is absolutely nothing else to eat in the house! Adjust the measured ingredients to your preference. The measurements were just guesstimates. I used white glutinous rice, but I'm sure any kind of white rice will do. The glutinous rice, however, does soak up that butter/oil, so it gets soggy if you don't eat it right away.
- 1 cup cooked white rice
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 lightly fried egg (optional)
- Mix all of the ingredients (except for the lightly fried egg) together in a bowl. Top with the fried egg (strips or whole).
- *The "lightly fried egg" is just cracked over a skillet in a little bit of oil. (Is that stir-frying? In case you can't tell, I'm really a novice cook!) Or you could whisk an egg and pour it over a griddle/skillet, as if you were going to make an omelette. Then you slice the egg in little strips.
I don't have any sesame seeds and I'm not a big fan of measuring. I think the butter to soy sauce ratio was 2:1 or 3:2 and it was perfect. I wouldn't suggest equal amounts else it would be too salty. I may not have followed the recipe exactly but it was close enough and very delish!
