Leftover Korean rice bowl recipe

Leftover Korean rice bowl recipe

9 ratings

Based on the traditional Korean dish bibimbap, this is perfect for a quick meal – rice topped with a fried egg, ham and veg stir-fry and flavoured with a splash of chilli and soy sauces. This recipe is a quick and easy leftovers idea from our ham, leek and mushroom pie dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be reheated more than once. See method

  2. While the rice cooks, heat 1 tbsp of the sesame oil in a wok or large non-stick frying pan until hot. Add the stir-fry vegetable mix and ham and cook for 4–5 minutes. Stir in the chilli sauce and soy sauce and cook for 1‑2 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining sesame oil to a large non-stick frying pan and fry the 4 eggs for 2–3 minutes, or until done to your liking. Drain the rice and divide between 4 bowls. Spoon over the stir-fry and top each with an egg.
