Kimchi Bokeum Bap - Version 2.0 - (김치 볶음밥)

I know I posted kimchi fried rice before, but I thought I would post another version. This version is just SO much yummier....but what's yummy isn't necessarily GOOD for your health~ if you know what I mean.

Let's start with half a can of spam. Hey! At least I bought the one with less sodium.

Heat 3 TB of butter (unsalted) and about 1/2 TB of minced garlic in a pan.

Add the half can of spam (cut into bite size pieces) along with 1/2 an onion (chopped up). Then add about 2 TB of red pepper paste and mix everything around.

Add about 1 cup of kimchi (the more fermented the better) and about 5-6 TB of kimchi juice. Let everything cook for about 15 minutes or so.

Add your rice. This was about 5 cups of cooked rice.

Mix everything around and throw some sesame seeds on top and splash some sesame oil on it too at this point.

Mix everything around and throw some green onions on top. Plate it with an egg and add some Furikake for more yummy goodness~


  1. I think you meant to say cooked/cold rice, right?

  2. yay, your pix are working for me today. i made my own version of your ziti - i used lasagna instead. yummy!!!

  3. just wanted to tell you that i am so glad that i found your blog. the pictures make my stomach grumble! everything looks so delicious.

    ever since i got married, i've been introducing my husband to new korean dishes. so far, he's loved pretty much everything which is a big relief to me. he does ABSOLUTELY refuse to eat spam, so i make my bokeum bap with ham and not spam.

    anyway, just wanted to say great blog! i'll check back often!

  4. your kimchee bap looks SO good! i'm def going to try this one soon!

  5. What is it with Asians and Spam? I grew up eating it - now my kids love Spam Musubi. It used to gross my husband out, but now he's a believer, too.

    Your fried rice looks awesome. I love kimchi - I could just sit and eat it right out of the container.

  6. I love your blogsite! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes and I do like how there are pictures! =)
    I was wondering if you could share how to make tteokbokki? I'm glad i stumbled across your site since I do love korean food! =)

  7. @lynne - dduk bbokki is already on here. =)

    hope that helps!

  8. yumm i made this a few days ago & my hubby & i really enjoyed it!

  9. Great blog.

    I don't know about you, but I like crispy SPAM...I suggest that you should really think of cooking the SPAM separately first and dump the pieces onto a paper towel to let it soak up the grease.

    Then, use chopped-up ripe kimchee with sesame oil. Proceed to mix rice and SPAM together at that point.

  10. yum... def want to try this sometime. I LOVE kimchi bokeum bap!
