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.

Maybe specify cabbage in grams - 'half' of one from supermarket was loads! Good flavours, but needing more time and technique than some of your dishes to do it justice. The pastes and fried rice tasted good... but I might have liked chicken or lamb mince with it more than cabbage. (Fair enough for vegetarians, just saying...!). 2/3 star - would order again for the pastes, but might customise it a bit.

Margaret - Dec 11, 2019

Much to strong and salty wont order that

Monika - Dec 09, 2019

Alex - Nov 27, 2019

Very tasty and authentic - just like in Korean restaurants!

Eloise - Nov 26, 2019

Not to my taste, I'm afraid. I found it a little too salty and would perhaps recommend not using the full pots for a gentler taste. Of course, others probably think differently!

Immense. Super simple and very authentic flavour, chucked raw prawns in with the cabbage.

Dee - Nov 19, 2019

Mega tasty. You can add loads of extra veggies because the flavourings provided are tasty/ go a long way

Richey - Nov 19, 2019

Quite a lot of garlic

Shwetha - Nov 18, 2019

Kathryn - Nov 18, 2019

Easy and very tasty

Jeremy - Nov 18, 2019

Really enjoyed this one.

Angela - Nov 15, 2019

I used red cabbage and jasmine rice as that’s what was in the cupboard. Next time I’ll definitely use long grain as any kind of sticky rice isn’t really suitable for this dish. However, really like the flavours of this and will definitely cool again.

A real change, surprisingly good
