READY IN: 20mins


  • Basic Ingredients
  • 4
    cups white rice, prepared and cooked
  • 1
    tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 -3
    tablespoons soy sauce (if dark use only 2)
  • 3
    stalks green onions, trim roots & mince (reserve about 1/2 tsp for egg topping)
  • Add any of the following to your liking (the recipe assumes all leftovers and vegetables are cooked)
  • 12
  • 10
    mushrooms, chopped
  • Any type of leftover cooked meat cut small such as
  • cooked pork or cooked chicken
  • Any type of leftover cooked Vegetable cut small such as
  • potatoes, pieces or peas
  • cabbage kimchi, if you like too
  • For Egg Topping
  • 2
    eggs, beaten
  • 1
    tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1
    teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1
    teaspoon sesame seed oil
  • 12
    teaspoon green onion, you reserved
  • 1
    pinch salt
  • 1
    pinch pepper
  • Optional
  • bits of roasted kombu seaweed (or any type of laver)


  • Rice:
  • In pan, add oil, vegetables, meat, rice and any other additional leftover ingredients you choose. Cook for about 5-7 minutes on medium-high heat stirring and covered the last 3 minutes on medium-low heat.
  • Add soy sauce at the end to preserve taste and benefits of soy sauce and remove from heat. Mound it on a plate and place to the side.
  • Egg Topping:
  • Place vegetable oil in a small frying pan and spread around well so that it covers the entire pan.
  • On low heat slowly put beaten eggs in pan. Cook like you would an omelet without folding (nice and happy, flat eggy) Make sure it is thoroughly cooked.
  • When egg is cooked flip the egg onto the fried rice and drizzle on the sesame oil. Sesame oil has more healthy benefits when it's not cooked.
  • Add the following the sesame seeds, green onions plus if you choose, crumbled roasted seaweed, pinch of red pepper flakes.
  • Salt and pepper to taste and eat up while hot!
  • My dad and brother would of course cover this all with ketchup if it didn't have the kimchee while my mom would use her hot pepper paste. I just liked mine plain.
  • =P.
  • You can use the egg topping method for the entire plate of rice or make individual egg toppings for each person.
