Nice! I remember this from my 18 month tour in Korea back in the early 80's. Keeping it simple as I recall, I made this for my family and it was an instant hit. Add the soy, garlic, crushed red peppers to your liking, but prepare as described and it is orignal. Nicely done!

I made this tonight, only I used it for a side dish with only a 1/4 of the meat. We liked this very much, we did use soy sauce at the table. I also cut the "omelette" into strips and placed them on top of the rice. My family liked it and said to make again. Thank you for sharing this yummy rice recipe.

How awesome! And talk about simple! I was desperate for a simple recipe tonight and this fit the bill perfectly. I added lots more seasonings, including fire oil, garlic honey, and dried kung pao peppers. I also used a runny fried egg on top instead of an omelet. It was killer! Thank you for this, I'll be making it for years to come!

Quick and easy to make. I made egg with it and didn't have soy sauce but it was good. A little too bland for my taste so next time I will use some other spices and garlic. I also will cook the beef separate from the vegetables, I don't like them absorbing the grease from the beef. It was though an all together quick, easy, and filling meal.

I was a unsure if I'd like this, since I'm a fairly picky eater. I made this for my husband and two friends, and everyone loved it! I made omelettes to go over it and I ate mine with ketchup. I'll be making this again soon!

This is my favorite dish from the Far East. I discovered it while in the Army in 1960’s after being transferred to Korea for a one year tour of duty. I was surprised to find this dish again while in Japan in 1962, after going into a Japanese restaurant for lunch in Yokosuka, Japan. Not knowing how to speak Japanese to the waitress, I helplessly made a gestures by pointing to pictures of rice dishes, trying to show her what dish I wanted. I then verbally said, “Ohm Rice” out loud, and then she said back to me “Hi, Ohm Rice,” and when she returned it was made exactly the same as in Korea. I found out later that this dish is originally a Japanese dish imported to Korea during the Japanese occupation of Korea. I might add that I still eat this dish on a fairly regular basis today since my wife can make this dish. I do eat Ohm rice with the egg omelette covering ( the omelette being as thin as you can make it). I then add a dab of ketchup on top of the egg. That was the way I was first served and ate Ohm rice in Korea. I also like to add hot pepper sauce to the rice dish as well to give it a little oomph, not that it needs it. For those who do not know it, most Korean style restaurants here do not have the dish on their menu, but if you ask for it specifically, most will make it for you.

Very good! I like to make this for lunch, with left over rice from the previous night. My friend also makes this recipe with Spam cut up into cubes in place of the beef (I know, I'm not a big Spam fan myself - but I have to say it does turn out pretty tasty after it's been fried). She also tosses in cubed up zucchini and summer squash.

Oh my goodness! I used to eat this with my Korean ex-sister-in-law ALL the time when I was little! I thought it was something she made up! She used to cut the potatoes and carrots into tiny cubes (very time consuming but good texture) and use cubed beef (i.e. steak), with the egg fried in like a stir fry! Absolutely delicious!
