Mia Hungry Long Time!

Fridge Clean-Up: Kimchi Fried Rice


I made this recipe on the day of the Superbowl. I had a super delicious brunch that morning and had a few hours before I had to leave to watch the game at a friend’s house (hi Alex!). I was getting hungry again and I didn’t really feel like eating Superbowl food for dinner. While I appreciate a good slice of pizza, this Asian soul was craving something that tastes a little closer to home.

I only had an hour before I had to leave for the game and looking at the contents my nearly empty fridge, only one recipe came to mind: kimchi fried rice! Fast, delicious, spicy, and easy, oh so easy.

In general, you can make fried rice with pretty much anything. Trust me, I’ve tried it. Spam fried rice, hot dog fried rice, even bacon and apple fried rice (not for the faint-hearted). As long as you have the basic ingredients (rice, soy sauce, etc.), you can have this hearty dish in twenty minutes. This particular afternoon, I also had a half empty container of kimchi(most delicious friekin thing ever), a handful of frozen shrimp, and leftover crab meat.

Forget that, only GREAT Thai food.
Dudes, when you live in NYC, ethnic food is EVERYWHERE. And there are loads of good ones. Good Thai food is a dime in a dozen (read: Park Slope & Carroll Gardens). But great Thai? Mm.. just like finding a cute, smart, non-commitment-phobe dude in NY, it is very rare. Read the rest of this entry »
