Classic Kimchi Fried Rice (Kimchi Bokkeumbap)
If you think fried rice sometimes comes across as a little meek in the flavor department, this will obliterate that notion. Kimchi bokkeumbap is a popular Korean dish made of leftover rice pan fried with kimchi.
Japanese Fried Rice – Yakimeshi
I’m a sucker for the fried rice made at Japanese teppanyaki restaurants. There’s something hypnotic about watching your food come together on a grill top before your very eyes.
Omurice – Japanese Omelette Rice – オムライス
Of all possible permutations of global fried rice recipes, this Japanese version reminds me of my childhood the most. Wait… ketchup? And the egg is on the outside? Yes and yes.
Easy Chicken Fried Rice
Do you have leftover chicken, some frozen peas, a couple garlic cloves – and maybe a carrot rolling around in the vegetable crisper? Well, you won’t need much more than that to make this Japanese tori chahan.
