Authentic Asian Cooking- Kimchi Fried Rice

Kimchi Fried Rice

It is the season of Chinese cabbages, so I’d like to touch base a bit of Korean food here – Kimchi. I have been making my own kimchi for nearly 20 years. Thanks for my lovely Korean friend who shares me her authentic Korean cooking. Making kimchi needs a bit of work but I will skip this process because you can find it easily in Asian grocery stores. What I love to share is how to cook kimchi fried rice. It is simple kimchi fried rice that I love to cook at home. My kids love it and I hope you will enjoy it too.

I wouldn’t write the fish sauce seasoning measurements in here because kimchi has its own sourness and saltiness and you need to season it properly by yourself

2 tablespoons oil
1 clove of garlic (chopped)
300g of beef mince or pork mince
4 cups cooled steam rice
A cup kimchi or more
Fish sauce for seasoning 

1.      Heat the oil in a fry-pan or wok over high heat. Add garlic and stir fry until lightly brown. Add beef mince and stir fried until half cooked. Add kimchi and keep stirring for about 1½ minutes.

2.      Pour in rice and seasoning with fish sauce, stir fry for 2 minutes or until the rice is heated through. Serve hot.

Tata…is done. Happy cooking!
