Chef's Tip

Rinsing rice removes starches on the surface of the grains that can cause clumping. You can give the rice a quick rinse in a fine-mesh strainer under cold running water, or place the grains in a small bowl, cover with cold water, swish a few times, drain, and repeat until the water runs clear.

Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.
In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons [2¼ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm.
While the rice cooks, prepare the vegetables and the sesame seeds.

2

Prep the vegetables; toast the sesame seeds

  • Peel and coarsely chop the onion.
  • Trim the root ends from the bok choy; cut the bok choy in half lengthwise, then crosswise into thin strips.
  • Coarsely chop the kimchi.
In a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, toast the sesame seeds, stirring often, until lightly browned and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. Do not clean the pan.

3

Cook the stir-fry

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons [4 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the bok choy, kimchi, carrots, peas, and as much sambal oelek as you like and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the cooked rice and fried rice seasoning blend. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the stir-fry cooks, prepare the eggs.

4

Fry the eggs

In the same pan used for the sesame seeds, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons [2 to 3 tsp] oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Crack the eggs directly into the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the whites have set and the yolks are slightly runny, 2 to 3 minutes. If you prefer firmer yolks, cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer.

5

Serve

Transfer the fried rice to individual bowls. Top with the fried eggs and nori strips, sprinkle with the sesame seeds, and serve.
