Kimchi and Pork Belly Fried Rice

In less than ten minutes, create a bowl of spicy kimchi and pork belly fried rice topped with a glorious egg.

The spicy kimchi and tender pork belly add an exciting twist to the classic fried rice, and the runny yolk of the sunny side up egg adds richness and creaminess to the dish.

Start by heating oil in a wok or a large pan over medium high heat. Add diced onions and cook until translucent, then add finely chopped garlic and cook until softened. Next, add pork belly to the pan and sear until almost cooked through. Add kimchi, kimchi juice, and light soy sauce, allowing the pork to absorb the flavors. Finally, add cooked rice, gochujang (Korean red chili paste), a pinch of sugar, and salt to taste. Fry until everything is well combined, swirl in sesame oil, and serve with sunny side up eggs.
