Kimchi Bokkeumbab (Kimchi Fried Rice)

Hugh Jackman provided me some inspiration for tonight's dinner, Ginger Fried Rice Korean-style, a dish he apparently loves according to People magazine (but I'm thinking the wife would probably had benefited from some kind of soup for her sudden sickness). When he was younger, his father used to do a lot of business in Korea so he was exposed to the food and fell in love with it. Enough so to become a goodwill ambassador for Seoul and a fan-favorite in Korea. Anyways, I found this article in People today and decided to change it up a little bit (adding scrambled eggs and Korea's staple food kimchi). The family loved it along with a bean sprout banchan side dish that I prepared for them. The recipe provided is my version of this delicious recipe.  This and other recipes can be found at www.oliviajasonkim.com. ^^

Kimchi Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Kimchi Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
