Cha-han means “fried rice” in Japanese.  Add kimuchi to make a sour and spicy Korean flavored fried rice.

<kimuchi Cha-han> serves 2

  • 1/2 cup kimuchi (Chinese Cabbage), roughly chopped
  • 2 bowls steamed rice, cold
  • 1 egg
  • 100g beef, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • chopped spring onions for garnish
  1. Heat a wok over high heat.  Pour in vegetable oil, then stir in garlic and beef: cook about 30 seconds.  Crack in eggs, stirring quickly to scramble eggs.
  2. Stir in cooked rice and kimuchi.  Cook over high heat, and shake in soy sauce then toss rice to coat.
  3. Drizzle with sesame oil, and toss again.
You can add more kimuchi to your liking 🙂
