Kimchi Fried Rice

My daughter promised to guest blog... well that was the plan but  then again school, work and yes life got in the way.

So I was writing my post this morning when I came across a folder in my file called GUEST BLOG.  Curious, I opened the file and I saw pictures of my daughter in my kitchen!

Oh my, I thought, she really intended to guest blog!

And so I'm foregoing my scheduled post today to feature my daughter's guest post... well kind of guest post.  (Heather you still have to write me another one just as you promised right?). I'm sure you don't mind that I'm posting yet another rice recipe topped with fried egg just like my previous post.. right? I hope the answer is yes  haha.

So let me share with you the steps on how to make Kimchi Fried Rice as revealed by the photos I found.

I found it amusing that she prepared her ingredients in those tiny cups hehehe.. So for ingredients she used: She used SPAM and cubed it.  (When you're in college, Spam is your best friend) 2 tbsp vegetable oil, garlic, onions, Kimchi marinade (she squeezed the kimchi to get its juices out) salt (oh my that 's  a lot of salt but sue it in caution as the spam  is already salty).

In a pan, saute garlic and onions.  Add spam cubes, kimchi cabbage. Add soy sauce and kimchi sauce.

Add cooked rice (left-over rice is better.)

 She used around 3 cups.

Mix them together...and you may add more kimchi sauce to get a well coated plateful of rice... top it with fried eggs... and enjoy!

This was the first time kimchi fried rice was served at home... and it was actually the start of kimchi fried rice obsession.    The flavors will explode in your mouth... as in literally because of the heat... Happy cooking!


  1. I love kimchi fried rice and your lovely daughter had done a good job :)

  2. this is one of my favorite rice. i like the zing .yes the heat of the kimchi coating each grain of rice


  3. Thats an awesome rice recipe. I need to try to make this dish...its so tempting

  4. I have eat lots of different ways of frying rice but no with Kimchi. I got to try this.

  5. Oooh, looks so yummy! I like kimchi but I could never eat so much at a time because it's really hot. This may mute the hotness though, yum! :)

  6. I never had kimchi fried rice...your lovely daughter did an amazing job on it. Great step-by-step photo instructions. Love the recipe, looks and sounds delicious!
    (the only thing I would skip, is the SPAM) Had plenty of that, growing up in the sixties!

  7. This totally reminds me of home. We always had kimchi on hand. And always made fried rice with it! Now that I’m living with my fiance, (who is white) I didn’t think he’d like kimchi. Today I went out to buy some and pan fried it a little to eat with some rice. I will be making this for dinner tonight!


Thank you for stopping by and oh I would be thrilled even more if you could leave a comment... :) Cheers!
