1 tablespoon butter

4 oz (.25 lb) pork belly or thick cut bacon, diced

1/2 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup Kimchi + 2 Tablespoons extra juice

2 cups cooked Jasmin rice (1 cup rice + 2 cups water cooked to package directions)

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 tablespoons Gochujang sauce (you can find this in the Asian section of your grocery store)

Fried eggs (1 per serving)

Scallions, sliced thin


Heat up a large saute pan or wok over high heat

To the pan add the butter and pork belly. Cook the pork until cooked through and slightly golden

Turn the heat to medium and add in the onions and garlic. Cook for about 1 minute

Add in the kimchee and juice and saute another 1-2 minutes

To the pan add in the cooked rice, sesame oil, soy sauce, and Gochujang sauce. Stir to combine completely

In another small saute pan fry an egg while the fried rice gets slightly crispy on the bottom. Careful you don’t burn it!

Add the fried rice to your bowls, top with a fried egg, and sprinkle with sliced scallions. YUM!
