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.

Robert - Apr 23, 2019
Nearly a 5 as it was delicious just didn’t have any meat with it and I love da meat
Danielle - Apr 23, 2019
This meal was delish! My only problem was that i used fresh rice. The rice then turned into rice balls/paste! I can only imagine it would be better with leftover rice as stated. It tasted great but didn’t look half as nice in the picture!
Simon - Apr 22, 2019
Not for me !
Helen - Apr 22, 2019
Yummy but a bit boring without leftovers to bolster it up

Good way of spicing up the left overs. Family divided over it!
Nick - Apr 13, 2019
Added veg - red pepper and oyster mushrooms. Got the dish so far and then continued regularly stirring and adding hot water to make it a bit more like risotto. Topped it with a pan fried fillet of salmon delicious. Not the most tasty or spicy dish ever but very good with some enhancements. It also needs a lot of seasoning adding. Four stars.
Sabrina - Apr 13, 2019
Lacks a lot. Just cabbage? Be more creative rather than asking us to use leftovers!
Linda - Apr 13, 2019
Didn't like this ,maybe egg and rice combo ??
Andrew - Apr 13, 2019
Not a fan of this one. Very strong taste and strange texture. Personal preferance issue I think.
Clohe - Apr 11, 2019
We both loved this meal. Think we will add some meat to it next time
Amy - Apr 11, 2019
My favourite SC dish so far! I added a fillet steak which worked really well. Left overs for lunch today with some peri peri chicken :)
Katie - Apr 11, 2019

Nick - Apr 11, 2019

Lisa - Apr 10, 2019
Surprising tasty!! Received not by choice (forgot to update my box before delivery) HOWEVER really enjoyed this and would order again!
Sarah - Apr 10, 2019
Really good, I was a bit dubious about the fried egg, but it so worked. Will definitely order again.
Caroline - Apr 10, 2019
Really tasty vegetarian dish. Will def have again
Claudia - Apr 10, 2019
I added some quorn chicken pieces and radish to the cucumber garnish, came out lovely! I definitely think it needs some extra elements as without them it would be very samey
Lisa - Apr 10, 2019
Flavours were too raw and intense for me
Alice - Apr 09, 2019
Jaymie - Apr 09, 2019
This is GORGEOUS. And you can change it up however you like, we added loads of different veg, or you could easily add seafood or meat. We were greedy and doubled the eggs though.
Laurence - Apr 09, 2019
Not as good as it appears. The egg is the best bit
nicole - Apr 09, 2019
Was lovely and full of flavour!
Michael - Apr 09, 2019
Easy enough but not very exciting.
Sara - Apr 09, 2019
A little bit to salty for my liking but delicious
Claire - Apr 09, 2019
Mouth is on fire. Spilt it to take for lunches instead of a evening meal, defo missing some meat.
C - Apr 09, 2019
Portions are off for 2 person recipe - I used the correct amount of rice and the sauces provided and the whole thing was much too strongly flavoured (and no, it's not because it was too spicy), ended up having to cook more rice to stir into the dish to make it edible. Even then however, it's not the best tasting stir fry, only ok.
Philip - Apr 08, 2019
Korean bubble & squeak. OK but probably would not choose it myself (it was chosen for me!)
Claire - Apr 08, 2019
So easy and tasty, better than a takeaway
Helen - Apr 07, 2019
Loved this! I wouldn’t have chosen it, but forgot to choose my own dishes and this was one that was chosen for me! So glad it was! I added some finely sliced oven-cooked chicken fillets.
bekkie - Apr 06, 2019
Ok as a side dish but found it a bit much as a main
Anouska - Apr 06, 2019
Chris - Apr 05, 2019
Bad recipe doesn't stipulate what size cabbage ended up eating more cabbage than rice. Please give more detail
Aleksandra - Apr 04, 2019
I am so happy with that dish ! Used chicken thigh, carrot, broccoli and mushrooms and the effect was superb ! What a treat
