Korean Inspired Fried Rice


This is my version of a Korean fried rice. I took inspiration from the strong and spicy flavours you find in Korean barbecue and blended it with my usual fried rice recipe. The outcome is a very punchy rice with a comforting soft egg on top.


Koreans typically place a raw egg yolk on top of their meals, but I'm not so keen on that. A fried egg, slightly on the over easy side, does just the trick. This was a huge hit with my friends!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 4 servings



  1. Heat a bit of oil in a large pan over medium high heat and add the ground meat. Break it into smaller bits.
  2. After a few minutes, add the garlic and ginger. Stir, cooking until the meat is browned.
  3. Add the soy sauce, chili, and sugar. Stir until everything is evenly distributed. Pour this mixture into a large bowl and set aside.
  4. With the meat juices still in the pan, add the onions and broccoli. Stir fry until wilted, 5-7 minutes. Add some water if the pan dries up a bit.
  5. Stir in the mushrooms. Cook until mixture starts to brown at the edges. Transfer to the same bowl with the meat mixture.
  6. Add some oil to the pan and scramble the 2 whisked eggs. Transfer to the big bowl.
  7. Add a teaspoon of oil to the pan and set to high. Place the rice in the pan and cook while stirring frequently. Add a bit of salt and pepper.
  8. Return the meat, vegetables, and scrambled eggs to the pan with the rice. Mix very well.
  9. Do a taste test then make any adjustments. I added more chili and soy sauce.
  10. Fry one egg for each serving, to go on top of the rice.
  11. Serve rice in bowls then top with a fried egg. Drizzle with chili flake oil.
