Korean Fried rice is a quick and easy rice dish, you can make this very quickly and easily at home and makes a good quick lunch, it is popular in Korea often served with egg. it makes a good lunch box meal for kids as its not spicy like Bibimbap or kimchi fried rice, and is normally served alongside some side dishes.
Bokkeum Bap literally translates as ‘fried rice’ and the dish itself can contain virtually anything and you will see regional variations throughout south Korea, common ingredients include potato, carrot, mushrooms, onions, beans and sweetcorn, with meats like pork, beef or spam. i would generally use whatever i have in my fridge.
I have used the following Ingredients: (2 people)
• 100g of spam
• 600g of rice
• 1/2 carrot
• 1/2 courgette
• 1 mushroom
• pinch of salt
Begin by cooking the rice either boiled or rice cooker, read the packet for instructions. in south Korea we usually eat short or medium grained rice but long grain is ok. Begin by cutting all the vegetables and meat in to small cubes, put some oil in a pan and throw in all the vegetables and meat and allow to cook while seasoning with a pinch of salt.
Once everything is cooked add the rice to the pan, you can add a tablespoon of soy sauce if you wish and mix well. Fry for a further few minutes and then serve in a bowl, you can freeze this dish in the freezer and reheat later for some homemade ready meals.
Bibimbap is everything korean chucked in to a bowl. the essence of the dish is sticky rice and a tablespoon of gochujang, with any vegetables or side-dishes you can find added.
The term Dolsot Bibimbap refers to the traditional stone bowls that are used to make and serve this dish, this keeps the rice hot and the bottom crunchy, you can buy these bowls from most asian supermarkets.
I have used the following ingredients:
• sushi rice
• 1/2 tablespoon of Gochujang
• 2 mushrooms
• 1/2 courgette (zucchini)
• 1/2 carrot
• spinach
• 1 egg
Common ingredients include beansprouts, minced beef, lettuce and Kimchi, However you can use pretty much anything you can get your hands on.
To start fry all the vegetables you are using, cook some sushi rice and put this in a bowl, add all the cooked vegtables. Depending on how spicy you like your food add gochujang, as a guide about ½ tablespoon is about right for a nice spice.
Mix everything together throughly, and then enjoy. this makes a great lunch or dinner, and can be very healthy and is low in calories. a very easy bibimbap recipe!
