Fried Rice Level Up – Japanese Omurice Recipe

The biggest difference between regular fried rice and Japanese omurice (オムライ) is how the eggs are used. Common fried rice comes with scrambled eggs mixed together with other ingredients such as rice, scallion, corn, carrot, and more. As for the Japanese omurice, or omelet rice, comes with semi-cooked scrambled eggs on top of the rice and other ingredients. In addition, a more “luscious” omurice even comes with beef stew or béchamel sauce drizzle on top of the eggs.

Let’s not go too far with all the extra fancy sauce drizzle all over the omurice. Just a simple Japanese omurice with perfectly semi-cooked eggs with a hint of butter should do the trick.

Ingredients (3 to 4 portions)?

Fried rice –
  • 2 ½ cups of steamed white rice
  • 6 thick slices of bacon
  • 1 can/15.25 oz of sweet corn
  • 1 small can/8.5 oz of sweet peas
  • 1 medium carrot
  • ½ onion
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
  • Some ketchup
  • Some Sriracha sauce

Semi-cooked eggs (for each portion of fried rice) –
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • Some distilled water
  • Dried seaweed flakes (optional)

    1. Hello Ricky,

      I just added the widget and decided to give it a try for a short period (at first I wasn't too sure if it's a spam thing). Hopefully everything will work out good.
