  • Cook your rice according to package instructions. Once cooked, mix with butter until well combined. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  • In a non-stick pan set over medium heat, add cooking oil and fry your egg sunny side up or easy over (the choice is up to you). If you enjoy eggs with crispy edges, add more oil. If you like eggs without crispy edges, only lightly grease the pan. Fry the egg until the white is cooked but the yolk is runny. Place egg over top of buttered rice.
  • Next sprinkle sesame seeds over top, sesame oil, chopped green onions and soy sauce, as much as desired for the latter.
  • Mix the egg into the rice along with the other ingredients and enjoy!


Tips for making Gyeran Bap:
For best taste, use fresh hot steamed rice that has just been cooked for this Korean egg rice dish. This will help to melt that butter.
While the rice is still hot, add your butter and give it a good mix to evenly distribute the butter.
To fry your egg, fry it on a non-stick lightly oiled pan for clean edges on that egg. But if you want crispy edges feel free to add more oil.
After placing the fried egg over top, season with your aromatics and soy sauce. Feel free to add more soy sauce as desired for this Korean egg rice recipe.
