  • 2.5 cups cooked sushi rice (or 240 ml uncooked rice cooked in a rice cooker)
  • 275 grams pork belly chopped (¾ cm thick without skin)
  • ¾ cup Kimchi chopped
  • ½ cup white onion diced
  • 1 tsp Garlic minced
  • 3 tbsp Kimchi juice
  • 2 tsp Gochujang
  • ½ tbsp regular soy sauce not light or dark!
  • 1 tsp Sesame oil
  • ¼ cup Green onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds optional

Optional toppings:


  • Slice pork belly into ¾ inch wide pieces.
  • In a hot wok set over medium-high heat, add chopped pork belly. Spread it apart and cook your pork belly so that the edges are browned, about 5-8 minutes depending on your heat.
  • Next add white onion, garlic, and kimchi. Mix well.
  • Add cooked rice, soy sauce, kimchi juice, gochujang, and sesame oil. Mix everything together until rice is evenly coloured in red.
  • Lastly add green onions and sesame seeds (optional) and give it one final mix. Remove off heat and serve with optional toppings as suggested above.


Optional Tip: Prior to cooking your fried rice, reheat your leftover cooked rice in the microwave for 60-90 seconds until warm so it breaks down easily in the wok. If you’re cooking your rice the same day, you can skip this step but just keep it warm.
