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.

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.

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.

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 ????
