Kimchi fried rice with fried egg on top

Kimchi Fried Rice

  • Author: Kathleen
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Kimchi Fried Rice is a comforting meal or side dish made with just a few simple ingredients. Scramble eggs right in the pan or top each bowl with a perfect fried egg. Just 15 minutes start to finish.


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, plus additional if needed for eggs
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh crushed or minced ginger
  • 23 cups cooked rice (1 cup dry, prepared according to package. Day old cooked rice is awesome)
  • 12 oz bag frozen veggies, such as peas and carrots
  • 1 cup kimchi
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 eggs
  • sriracha, sesame seeds, sliced green onions (optional, for topping)


  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and ginger and sauté for about a minute until fragrant.
  2. Add the rice, peas and carrots, soy sauce, and kimchi to the skillet. Mix everything up and stir fry until everything is sizzling, hot, and combined. Add additional soy sauce, if needed.
  3. For scrambled eggs: Make a well in the center of the mixture. You can add a tiny bit more of oil if you’re worried about sticking. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and add to the well that you made. Scramble in the center of the pan then mix with rice mixture.
  4. For fried eggs: Either use a separate nonstick skillet or remove fried rice and use same skillet. Heat a little bit of oil, if needed, and fry eggs to desired doneness. I love a runny yolk mixed with the rice!
  5. Serve as you like! Sriracha, sesame seeds, green onions. All good! Enjoy!
