  • 2 1/2 cups mixed greens lettuce , chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper (or yellow), sliced long and thin
  • 4 large eggs
  • sriracha hot sauce , for topping (optional)
Instructions
  1. Slice the pork tenderloin into very thin slices and place the meat in a large ziplock bag. Set aside.

  3. Pour the marinade into the bag with the pork and allow to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or overnight. 

  4. When ready to cook the pork, add 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil to a large wok or skillet over medium high heat. 

  5. Once hot, add half of the meat, placing it in a single layer in the pan. Allow it to brown for a few minutes, without touching it. 

  6. Flip each piece of meat to the other side and allow to brown for another 2 minutes or so, until cooked through, but not overcooked. Remove to a plate. 

  7. Add remaining oil to the pan. Once hot, add remaining pork and cook in the same manner. Remove to a plate. 

  8. Add sliced bell peppers to the pan and saute for 2-3 minutes. 

  9. At the same time, Place another skillet over medium heat and cook your eggs, sunny-side up, in a hot greased pan for several minutes. 

  10. In shallow bowls add a large spoonful of cooked Kimchi Fried Rice
  11. Top with chopped leafy greens, then bulgogi pork, peppers, and a fried egg. 

  12. Add some sriracha hot sauce on top, if you like more heat. Serve immediately. 

Recipe Notes

!Make ahead tips: The pork and marinade can be made a day in advance. The white rice for the kimchi fried rice can be cooked at least a day or more in advance, and then it only takes 5 minutes to throw together. Chop the lettuce and bell peppers in advance so that you're ready to go!
