  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 dashes ground black pepper
  • 1 stalk scallion, cut into small rounds


  1. Heat up a wok or skillet on high heat. Add the oil. When the oil is fully heated, sauté the garlic and onion until aromatic. Add the kimchi and do a few quick stirs before adding the rice. Stir to combine well.

  2. Add the soy sauce, sesame oil, black pepper and scallion. Stir a few times to blend with the rice. Dish out and serve immediately.

  3. You can fry an egg sunny side up and serve the egg on top of the Kimchi fried rice.

Recipe Notes

I like my Kimchi Fried Rice spicy with lots of kimchi. Cut down on the kimchi if you like a milder taste. You can fry an egg, sunny side up and serve on top of the Kimchi Fried Rice.
