Hashbrowns with Kimchi, Onions, Cheese and Eggs

Version 2

I had an amazing meal today. My goal was to finish up the last bit of kimchi in the fridge.

I sliced up some onions and fried them in a pan until they were soft. Then I added the kimchi and a little bit of water that I used to get out all of the deliciousness in the kimchi container.

I let the kimchi topping simmer while I fried up some hashbrowns in another pan and melted some butter for eggs in yet another pan. I also grated some sharp cheddar and chopped up some green onions.

When the hashbrowns were getting golden, I cracked two eggs into the pan with butter and quickly fried them sunny-side up, keeping the yolks runny. When they were ready, I put down the hashbrowns in a layer, topped them with a generous layer of the kimchi and onions, added a layer of cheese, slid on the eggs and then scattered green onions on top.

The result was fantastic. Very savoury and filling, but special enough that it would make a lovely brunch dish. It was a three-pan meal, but it was definitely worth all the dishes.

Kimchi Stir Fry: Spice Up Your Life!

kimchi stir fry-small

This is comfort food at its finest. I made this delicious kimchi stir fry yesterday. I was trying to recreate a meal I had at a Korean restaurant.

I made this by frying a medium size onion, adding chopped green onions and then adding cabbage. After that I added cooked rice, kimchi (which I chopped finely), juice from the kimchi and green peas. And that’s it.

I topped it all off with two eggs fried sunny-side up. Of course, the sunny-side-up technique I have been perfecting over the past couple of years involves frying eggs in a lot of butter (one could say more than is strictly necessary) and then spooning the hot butter over the top so that the egg can bathe in buttery goodness. This results in an egg that is more cooked than a regular sunny-side up egg, but less cooked than an over-easy egg. When I serve it on toast, I pour the melted butter over the bread first and top it with egg.

For the stir fry, I placed the eggs on top of the rice and cabbage and drizzled the butter over top of it all. And then I ate it, enjoying the amazing blend of kimchi, cabbage, onion, rice and eggs. I think I am going to have to add this dish to my repertoire.
