Kimchi Fried Rice
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with the Family
In making kimchi fried rice over the years (decades), I’ve always scrambled a couple eggs and incorporated them into the rice during the stir-frying process, but no fried eggs, as shown in the first 8 of 10 prior posts on GMTD featuring kimchi fried rice by me (see most recently 11.221 Kimchi Fried Rice).
But on the 9th post, I included scrambled eggs as usual, but then also added fried eggs on top (see 12.170 Kimchi Fried Rice with Cilantro).
On the 10th post, I did the fried eggs but not scrambled eggs (see 14.031 Kimchi Bokkeumbap), same with this 11th post.
All 3 methods are equally legit, though I’ve shifted to the 3rd style in response to my family’s growing appreciation for fried eggs. In fact, they demand 2 fried eggs each (plated separately), so I don’t bother with the scrambled eggs, as per the 2nd style.
