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.

Nice dish

Rachel - Aug 05, 2019

A little bit spicy but the fried egg really goes well with it, if we have it again we will try 2 eggs as it seemed to balance it well.

Swapped the cabbage for Kale added broccoli and marinated spicy pork twice fried . Was delish ????????

Now this one I was very unsure about , but wow , so full of flavour , and such simple ingredients .. lovely

Victoria - Aug 01, 2019

We went slightly off piste - omitted the eggs and used a chicken breast and lots of veg we had hanging around in the bottom of the fridge but it was extremely tasty nonetheless

Karen - Aug 01, 2019

Lovely for left over Sunday lunch.

Liyen - Jul 31, 2019

Didn't really have any substance. Felt like a side dish even though we bulked it up with added veg.

Laura - Jul 31, 2019


Jade - Jul 31, 2019


Sue - Jul 31, 2019

This is absolutely gorgeous and loved by my hubby and me. I find the 2 pastes you add at the end are too salty for my liking so I only add 3/4 of each and that's perfect. Fantastic with leftovers or with fresh veg. Another fantastic dish from Simply Cook.

Tanya - Jul 30, 2019

A little spicy for our taste but still delicious & extra good with the fried egg on top. We loved it!

Ed - Jul 30, 2019

Right until the second I ate this I thought I want going to like it. The ingredients, the smell, everything... And THEN... I had the most amazing meal for tea. So pleased with this and I've ordered similar sauces to make this for a dinner party. O hope it's just as nice ????

Michael - Jul 30, 2019
