Judy Joo’s Kimchi Fried Rice

Ingredients

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 strips (45 grams or 1 3/4 ounces) bacon, diced
2 carrots, julienned and then coarsely chopped
1 clove garlic, grated
9 shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced lengthwise into quarters
1/2 zucchini, julienned and coarsely chopped
3 spring onions or scallions, finely sliced
1 cup kimchi, chopped into small pieces
4 cups cooked short-grain rice
1 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
8 grinds black pepper
3 soft sunny-side up fried eggs
Sprinkle Korean chile flakes (gochugaru)
Sprinkle freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the bacon and saute until the edges are crispy, 2 to 3 minutes.

Using a slotted spoon remove the bacon from the skillet and let drain on kitchen towels.

Reduce the heat to medium and add the carrots and garlic to the skillet.

Cook, stirring constantly, until carrots are just softened, 2 to 3 minutes.

Then mix in the mushrooms, zucchini, 2 of the spring onions and the kimchi, and continue to saute until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
Return the bacon to the pan.

Add the rice and mix to incorporate well using a wooden spoon to break up the rice.
Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the fried rice to a serving plate or platter, top with the fried eggs andgarnish with the remaining spring onions and a sprinkle of Korean chile flakes and black pepper.
