Kimchi Fried Rice!!!!!

The ultimate Korean comfort food.  My mom and my grandma used to make this for me after school.
Every Koreans have their own version.  Some use butter, some add some leftover meat, some even use lunch meat,  (Spam is always good)  additional vegetable and etc.  This is very basic version.  Add to it whatever turns you on.


1 cup of kimchi with some of the juice.  ( I use Kitchen shears to cut kimchi in to small bite size)
11/2 cup of left over rice.
1 fried egg
1 scallion chopped
1 tbsp of canola oil.  (I prefer canola over olive oil.  less flavor.  Most Korean dishes are finished off with drizzle of sesame oil which has a very strong flavor and aroma.
Splash of soy sauce.  (Its like salt, add to taste.)
drizzle of sesame oil.

On a non stick frying pan heat canola oil.
Add kimchi and let it fry till kimchi is toasted looking.
About 5 minutes.
Add rice and stir well and cooked thru.  6 to 8 minutes.
Add splash of soy sauce and drizzle of sesame oil.
Garnish with scallion move to plate or bowl.
Finish off with 1 fried egg on top.

Its great with miso soup on the side.
