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.

    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. 

  • 2.

    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.)

  • 3.

    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.

  • 4.

    Fry the eggs

    Fry 2 eggs in a separate pan, keeping the yolks soft.

  • 5.


    Serve the rice with a fried egg on top, breaking the yolk into the rice to eat.

Worst food I’ve ever tasted. Went in the bin.

Dave - Nov 07, 2019

After adding the sauces and spring onion to the rice, the dish went very dry pretty quick so we just added a splash of boiling water to bring it together a little better.

Very tasty, and easy to make ????

Similar to a real Nasi Goreng - delicious. If you like it spicy I recommend adding fresh chopped chillis when serving

Good. Plainly, practice is needed to get the texture of the rice right.

Adam - Oct 28, 2019

Cooked it with king prawns and was Outstanding !

Faye - Oct 28, 2019

Bit bland

Stephen - Oct 28, 2019

Not the most exciting dish we’ve tried but was alright - we felt it was more of a side dish though but each to their own.

Stephen - Oct 28, 2019

A bit strange and not really what we would choose but we gave it a go. Would probably suit more as a side dish than a main.

Kate - Oct 27, 2019

Sam - Oct 27, 2019

Fried rice was too hard
