Bokkeumbap, literally translating to “fried rice” is popular Korean style rice dish that makes great use of leftovers and provides a quick and satisfying meal. Often served with Kimchi on the side and a fried egg on top, we’ve sourced the 2 special Korean elements that transform this mixture of humble ingredients into a big bowl of savoury and spicy goodness: Doenjang - a Korean soybean paste and Gochujang - a red chilli pepper paste!

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    If making fresh rice: Boil the rice in a pan of boiling water until it's roughly 3/4 of the way done (around 8 mins). The rice should still have some bite as it will continue to cook in the next steps. Drain it in a sieve and keep it aside.

  • 2.

    Heat a little oil in a wok over high heat and stir fry the cabbage (and any other fresh veg) and the Garlic Paste until cooked (2-3 mins). Then remove the cabbage from the pan and keep it aside.

  • 3.

    Using the same pan, heat a little more oil over medium heat. Add the cooked rice and let it fry for 5 mins, stirring occasionally. Don’t move the rice around in the pan too much. It will start to crackle and colour a bit. Stir the Gochujang, the Doenjang and the spring onions into the rice. Return the cooked cabbage to the pan and stir into the rice. At this stage you can also add any cooked meat leftovers you might have.

  • 4.

    In a separate frying pan, fry the eggs to the point where the yolks are still a little runny.

  • 5.

    Serve the fried rice onto plates with a fried egg on top of each. Stir the yolk into the rice and get stuck in!

We all loved this and I don’t really like hot so was concerned about the two chilli rating, I added creme fraiche. Lovely

Mark - Sep 20, 2018

Far too salty, everyone who ate it agreed. Would not recommend in its current format.

Natasha - Sep 05, 2018

I used steak slices in this and added frozen peas. Loved it

My first try at korean food - the ingredients are so hard to get where I live - and I loved it!!

Cathryn - Aug 30, 2018

Hubby and I enjoyed!! Kids didn’t like it.

Rachel - Aug 25, 2018

Lovely flavours, great mix of spices. I'm not sure about the egg on the top, though my husband thinks it was an essential part of the meal. I reheated the leftovers the following day and ate without the egg with no complaints!

Very different from anything we have had before. The children were not keen, but my husband and I both agree we would have it again.

Anna - May 22, 2018

Great meal!

Lesley - May 09, 2018

Our family loved this, the taste is similar to a spicy black bean sauce with a great kick to it. First time my kids have eaten cabbage in any form! Also added in thinly sliced carrots & peppers and we loved the fried egg on top, the hot runny yolk was great with the rice.

Donna - May 01, 2018

Really enjoyed this but not sure that the fried egg is needed - think I will add sliced hard boiled ones instead
