Spooky Kimchee Fried Rice

Updated: Oct 25, 2018


(Difficulty Level: ✗ 1/2)

Here are the steps to a basic kimchee friend rice.

Creating jack's face is all you!


INGREDIENTS:

- about 2-3 cups chopped kimchee (with juices)

- 1/2 diced onion

- 3/4 to 1 can of spam, cubed

- about 3 - 4 cups cooked rice

- about 1 -2 tablespoon(s) sesame oil

- about 1 teaspoon soy sauce (optional)


INSTRUCTIONS:

Heat your pan / wok.

Saute onions. Add spam. Crisp spam to the doneness you prefer.

Add kimchee and also cook down till softened.

I like to add just a little bit of sesame oil to the kimchee.

Add your rice. Add sesame oil. Mix everything together and continue to mix.

I usually will use two spatula / spoons to mix evenly.

Adjust as you need. Add more rice if you want it less red / spicy. If it needs more flavor, add the soy sauce. Finish with a little more sesame oil.

Mix one last time and flatten out your rice.

I like to let it sit like that for a few minutes to get a little crispy on the bottom before serving.


TIPS:

  • as always, I can't emphasize enough... TASTE YOUR FOOD! a successful dish is when you like it, not because you could or couldn't follow a recipe accurately. add more kimchee, or rice, or sesame oil, etc... based on how you want to eat it

  • I personally like using the LITE spam instead of regular

  • I don't start with any oil to saute my onion and spam just to reduce oil where I can, but if you find it too dry, by all means start off with some canola oil to saute

TIPS FOR THE FACE:

  • Whisk two eggs well and add a little salt for flavor.

  • Add a little food coloring (red to make orange). I initially used carrot juice (in an effort to stay au natural), but it ended up making my egg crepe too fluffy and also gave me a salmon / coral color instead!

  • Heat up your pan and add some oil. Pour out your egg and make an egg crepe.

  • Be sure you don't cook too long that you caramelize / color your crepe!

  • Remove and cover your mound of rice.

  • Cut out your dried seaweed to make your face.

  • Be creative! Funny, scary, can make mini kid sized pump
