Our 20 minute recipe
Cook the rice
If making fresh rice, boil a large pan of water then add the rice. Cook over a medium heat for 8-10 mins until it's almost done (it should still have some bite as it'll continue cooking later on), then drain it and keep aside.
Fry the cabbage first
Heat some oil in a frying pan over high heat and stir-fry the cabbage (and any other fresh veg) with the GARLIC PASTE for 3 mins. Then remove and keep aside.
Add a little more oil to the pan and fry the cooked rice over medium heat for 5 mins, stirring occasionally. (Don’t move the rice around the pan too much so that it can start to crackle and colour a little bit.)
Add the Korean flavours
Stir the GOCHUJANG, the DOENJANG and the spring onions into the rice.
Return the cabbage to the pan and add any cooked leftovers you're using.
Fry the eggs
Fry 2 eggs in a separate pan, keeping the yolks soft.
Serve the rice with a fried egg on top, breaking the yolk into the rice to eat.

My wife and I loved this and will order again!
Saba - Feb 10, 2019
Wow!!! This was the first Simply Cook recipe I made and was so impressed!! Took the advice of other raters and used two eggs each and that was just right! Will definitely order it again!
Jill - Feb 09, 2019
My favourite dish so far!
Amanda - Feb 09, 2019
Bit too strong, should have put more vegetables in. My own fault didn't put the amount of cabbage in that was in recipe. The egg really goes well with this. Very strong taste of soya sauce.

We weren't expecting a great deal from this dish (based off of looks and the reviews) however it was delicious. Flash fried some Pork chop loins beforehand in place of the "leftovers" to add, as well as red pepper and cucumber sliced on the side as per the image. Absolutely fantastic, definitely in my top 5 after near a year subscription time.
Sam - Feb 08, 2019
Great Korean flavours. Because there was no sauce, perhaps not as flavourful as the curries, but delicious nonetheless.
Zoe - Feb 07, 2019
Good, not as spicy as some people have made out, but also not the most exciting dish
Zia - Feb 07, 2019
Less cabbage more rice
Nigel - Feb 07, 2019
Totally brilliant! My wife wants it again soon!
Brian - Feb 07, 2019
Added cubes of carrot, butternut squash and some ginger, quite wholesome and very enjoyable.

I added cooked Chinese pork. It was lovely.
Janine - Feb 06, 2019
Just a little too hot so would be even better if it were slightly milder
Alison - Feb 06, 2019
Mine ended up a little dry but it was still very tasty!
Colin - Feb 05, 2019

Added some gherkins instead of fresh cucumber!
James - Feb 04, 2019
Gorgeous. What a great way to use leftovers. We did it with leftover pork from a Sunday roast.
Lynn - Feb 04, 2019
Flavouring on rice was overpowering
Anna - Feb 03, 2019

Yevette - Feb 03, 2019
Sophie - Feb 01, 2019
I’d say it’s hotter than medium spice, but very simple to make!
Katie - Feb 01, 2019
Love this recipe! So so tasty.
Shelley - Jan 31, 2019
Better than I thought but not as good as some others I have had Definitely needed the fried egg I used two and added peas
Tamsin - Jan 31, 2019
Really quick and easy, the whole family loved it!
Keith - Jan 31, 2019
Love this one, great with left over roast pork
Claire - Jan 30, 2019
D-licious! We put some red pepper and Quorn chicken pieces in which worked a treat. The egg is also a must. We will definitely be picking this one again!
Kevin - Jan 30, 2019

Linnie - Jan 29, 2019

Stacey - Jan 28, 2019
Really enjoyed this one very filling and the spices were just hot enough. Yummy
Julie - Jan 28, 2019
Didn't expect this to be as good as it was, fast to cook and you can put anything in to bulk it up. Loved it x
Pam - Jan 27, 2019
I had my doubts when I ordered this - couldn't see eggs, cabbage and rice going together too well. I was wrong - it was fantastic! I used a bit less rice and cabbage and added sliced mangetout and slivers of carrot (used a potato peeler). So good, I've just ordered it again!
