Kimchi Fried Rice

What a good way to use up the kimchi that the family is done eating it as a side. Being chinese, frying rice without egg or eggs is not acceptable, so very often this dish had at least 2 eggs added.

Rice for one person,
2 stalks of kimchi,
1/4 of onion,
50g of minced pork,
3roots of green onion,
1 teaspoon of ground garlic,
1teaspoon of soy sauce,
1 teaspoon of sesame oil, salt, pepper powder, cooking oil


It is better to use a leftover rice, if there is any, otherwise freshly cooked rice have to be cooled before frying.

Take out the insides of kimchi and cut them into small pieces.

Chop onions and green onions into small bits and mince the garlic.

Season the minced pork with soy sauce, minced garlic and pepper powder.

Saute the seasoned minced pork with cooking oil in frying pan. When the pork is cooked, put the onion and kimchi and cook more.

After five minutes, put in the minced garlic and green onion. Cook a little more and turn off the heat. Mix well after.

After mixing kimchi and pork with rice, turn on the heat again and taste with salt and pepper.

Finally put a little bit of sesame oil.

Put the rice into the dish and serve with crushed toasted seaweed and finely shredded omelette.

Hi Lily

I love your recipes and it bring back lot of memory from homeland.
I am a vegetarian (don't take garlic, onion, shallot, leek & chive) and I have been trying out your recipes substituting the meat ingredient with vegetarian one and it taste great.
Just wondering if you have any vegetarian recipes. I like Kimchi but never buy them as they contain garlic so if you have any kimchi recipes without garlic. Thanks.

my kimchi making is still at the tweaking stage. i have not made a kimchi that satisfy my household.

garlic present in kimchi is for flavor so it can be omitted.

I just posted my ultimate kimchi recipe and cannot wait to try it again. Your fried rice is on top of my best lists. I simply love this one. I sometimes add peas or corn, whatever I have left in the house.
