Bokeum Bap is a Korean fried rice dish with meat and vegetables. “Bokeum” in Korean means fried and “bap” means rice, so put together meaning fried rice. This dish is simple yet beloved by everyone, old and young. It’s a very popular after-school snack for children because it’s both nutritious and delicious. Even the most picky eaters love Bokeum Bap for its nutty, savory and chewy flavors. Bokeum Bap can take on many different forms depending on the ingredients you choose. For example, add a little bit of fried kimchi, and you have a Korean-style Kimchi Bokeum Bap. The main ingredients of the version at Hwa Gae Jang Tuh include shrimp, eggs, green onions, carrots, garlic, onion, zucchini, and red bell peppers. The seasoning for Bokeum Bap consists of oyster sauce, sesame oil, and soy sauce. We recommend having Bokeum Bap alone or along with other Chinese main dishes like Yu San Seul or Khan Poong Gi. Bokeum Bap is also delicious enjoyed with other banchans like kimchi.
