Ingredients

2 tbsp gochujang*

3 tbsp soy sauce

2 tsp sesame oil

2 tsp sesame seeds, plus extra to serve

300g (10 oz) beef mince

3 tbsp vegetable oil

3 eggs, lightly whisked

4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

1 onion, finely diced

1 cup sliced cabbage

½ cup shredded carrot

½ cup bean shoots

4 cups cooked rice (click here to see my recipe for how to cook rice for fried rice)

¼ cup finely sliced spring onion (scallions), plus extra to serve

Steps
  • Step 1

    In a bowl, combine the gochujang, soy sauce, sesame oil and 2 teaspoons of the sesame seeds.

  • Step 2

    Combine 3 tbsp of the gochujang mixture with the beef. Set the remaining gochujang sauce aside for later.

  • Step 3

    Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the egg and swirl to form a large omelette. Cook for a minute or until set. Then flip the omelette over and cook for another half a minute. Transfer to a chopping board and roughly chop.

  • Step 4

    Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the garlic and onion. Stir-fry for half a minute. Then add the beef. Stir-fry until just cooked through. Add the cabbage and stir-fry for a minute. Then add the carrot and bean shoots and stir-fry for half a minute. Add the rice and the remaining gochujang sauce. Stir-fry until the rice grains are evenly coated in the sauce. Toss through the omelette and the spring onion. Remove from heat and serve topped with extra spring onion and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

  • Notes
    Notes:

    – Gochujang is a Korean fermented chilli paste. It’s available in the Asian aisle of most supermarkets or order it online.

Quick and tasty

This is a good go-to recipe. It is quick to make once all the ingredients are prepared. I added some sliced mushrooms too and some shredded Chinese broccoli I had left in the crisper. It had a nice hum of wonderful gochujang.
