Korean Kimchi Fried Rice is my new favorite version of Takeout Style Fried Rice! This recipe is so flavorful, delicious, and most importantly – it is very easy to make! Topped with an over-medium fried egg, this beautiful dish is filled with rich flavor, and ready in only about 15 minutes from start to finish!

Kimchi is a type of fermented cabbage, and it adds wonderful flavor to rice when stir fried. It is also a gut-friendly food thanks to the fermentation process, so you can enjoy the flavors of this dish with the knowledge that it is good for you too! I picked up my prepared Kimchi at a local International Market. I love the authentic flavor of Easy Kimchi Fried Rice, and it is pretty much the best way to use up leftover day-old rice.

Preparing the Kimchi Fried Rice

Mince the garlic and slice the green onions. Separate the white and very light green pieces from the darker green ones. Finely chop the prepared Kimchi.

Heat the sesame oil in a cast iron skillet or wok over medium heat. Add the garlic, white and light green onions, and saute for 1 minute.

Turn the heat to high and immediately add the Kimchi and cook for 3 minutes, or until it begins to sear on the edges.

Kimchi Stir Frying

Stir in the rice and soy sauce until combined. Cook until the rice is warmed through and beginning to brown, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer the rice evenly into two bowls, and set aside.

Reduce heat to medium, and wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel. Spray with non-stick cooking spray and crack the eggs into the skillet. Sprinkle with a tiny pinch of kosher salt and black pepper. Cover and cook until the egg whites are cooked through and the yolks are still soft and runny.

Frying Eggs

Transfer an egg onto each bowl of prepared Kimchi Fried Rice. Top with the sliced green onions from earlier, and sprinkle with a dash of chili powder.

Eat immediately, ensuring the yolk is broken and mixes into the rice like sauce. Easy Kimchi Fried Rice is one of easiest, and most delicious takeout style recipes you can cook at home! Enjoy by itself after a long day, or pair it with some egg rolls or Cashew Chicken!
