Bokkeumbap is hugely popular Korean style fried rice dish that makes great use of leftovers and provides a super quick and satisfying meal. We've sourced the 2 special Korean elements that transform this jumble of 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.

    Unless you’ve got some leftover rice already in your fridge, cook some fresh rice according to the packet instructions. (Try to keep it a little bit underdone.)

  • 2.

    Add 1 tbsp oil to a frying pan or wok followed by the Garlic Paste and cabbage. Stir-fry the cabbage (and any other fresh veg) at high heat until cooked (3-4 mins). Then remove from the pan and set aside.

  • 3.

    Using the same pan heat 1 tbsp of oil. Once the pan is hot add the cooked rice keeping it on medium heat for 5 mins. (Don’t move the rice around in the pan too much. Ideally it will start to crackle and colour a little.)

  • 4.

    Stir the Gochujang, Doenjang and spring onions into the rice. Stir the mixture well and then add the cabbage. At this stage you can also add any cooked meat leftovers you have if you would like to.

  • 5.

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

  • 6.

    Scoop the rice mixture onto each plate and serve with the fried eggs on top. Stir the yolk in through the rice. Enjoy!

So much cabbage for a two person meal! Definitely could’ve fed at least 3 people!

Lauren - Nov 13, 2018

I was a bit unsure of this, but it was really delicious. We added some veg that was in the fridge and some chicken and prawns. Loved the fried egg on top, it really made it!

So quick and easy to put together. Another winner.

Christine - Oct 27, 2018

Surprisingly good! We used savoy cabbage, beansprouts, peppers and mushrooms. Not being a lover of fried eggs, we mixed the eggs into the rice, worked a treat. Good dish!

Suki - Oct 26, 2018

Julie - Oct 22, 2018

Really good and filling.

Clive - Oct 22, 2018

Nice but not amazing.

Esin - Oct 22, 2018

Everybody is different I guess. This is the only one I have not liked from the dishes I tried until now. Everyone of them was amazing except this one. It is just rice with very strong sauce.

Sarah - Oct 19, 2018

So tasty, really flexible dish, I used some leftover chicken and used up some other veg as well as cabbage but you could use almost anything.

Caroline - Oct 18, 2018

Just amazing

Sarah - Oct 17, 2018

Amazingly delicious!
