Kimchi Fried Rice

The yummiest and easiest thing to make in the kitchen ever. I know I say “easy” a lot and that’s the truth, because everything that I make is usually pretty easy – or, relatively effortless, if we must be strictly technical. I’m crazy hongry whenever I start cooking something and I just wanna eat as quickly as I can. The other day I made this Kimchi Fried Rice because I woke up thinking of Korean and I missed kimchi.

I didn’t want to fuss over this and just quickly wanted it straight into my belly. Speaking of which, I like adding sliced pork belly into my Kimchi Fried Rice because it doesn’t dry out during the stir-frying process. So that, along with chopped garlic and scallion, kimchi and cooked rice, all went into the wok for a stir-fry party. There’s no need to season the fried rice with additional salt, since the kimchi is already salty to begin with.

Just a handful of ingredients, and you’re good to go.

When I have no idea what to cook because hunger has temporarily blocked my neuroreceptors, I make this coz it’s a no-brainer, foolproof, quick and easy all-in-one meal that can be scarfed down with minutes, capped with contentment afterwards.

[REMIX] Kimchi Omu-Fried Rice

That same evening I did a remix for dinner and transformed it into Kimchi Omu-fried rice. (The “omu” stands for omelette.) Similar to the Japanese-style Omurice, I wrapped the Kimchi Fried Rice with a thin omelette and embellished it with some ketchup, Japanese mayonnaise and dried seaweed.

Oh btw, the opening video footages were filmed using the Casio Exilim EX-10 (which I wrote about here). I’m slowly figuring out this compact digital camera and exploring the video function. So far so good, I hope to do more of this demonstrative cooking video stuff through my own modest efforts on the fly; obviously at the far end of the spectrum there’s my other project: Culina Luna, but that is backed by hardcore hardware, pro video equipment and careful pre-planning.

Ah~ all these exciting projects, so much fun to be had. ^^

Nomz,
