How to Make Kimchi Fried Rice (김치볶음밥)

The flavor s of kimchi can be very intense if you have never tried it before.

If you have some leftover kimchi and rice at home, this is an easy kimchi-fried rice recipe!

Since every Korean household has some leftover kimchi, it is a favorite go-to meal if you have nothing to eat at home.

Kimchi Fried rice is especially popular among young college students who are living alpine or living on a low budget.  It is very inexpensive to cook, yet delicious and filling for your stomach.

Kimchi is already full of flavors, but most people add gochujang ( red chile paste), soy sauce, and some other spices in the Kimchi Fried rice.

You can add ham, bacon, sausage, spam, and canned tuna into the Kimchi Fried Rice.   

Bacon gives a smoky flavor and a can of tuna gives extra fish flavor to the Kimchi Fried rice.

Since this is a taste of home, you can throw in anything you have in the fridge – from leftover rice to the last few carrots, mushrooms, and onion.

Another benefit of making the kimchi fried rice is that it is better to use leftover steamed rice, especially one or two-day-old rice.   Typical freshly steamed rice has moisture and a soft texture but it is not good for mixing with kimchi.  Because it will go gluggy.

Many Koreans also put a fried egg on top of rice too.

Anyway, we hope you enjoy our recipe!
