Omelet Rice (Omurice) Recipe | MyKoreanKitchen.com

I often feel like cooking something very simple without taking much effort, yet want to pretend that I spent some good time on it. Do you ever feel the same way? Then this omelet rice might come in handy. In fact, I cooked it 4 times in the last week already.

Michael was very intrigued how I cover the rice with the eggs so well. Although dicing vegetables can be a little annoying and the most time consuming part of the process, it is quite simple to make. Would you like to pretend too?

  1. hello eunie after i watch rooftop prince..i tried to cook that omurice in our home but not look like yours but it look like omurice hehehe because no kimchi here in the philippines..but i like your recipe so much eunie 🙂
    i love rooftop prince ever… i wanted to see them..

  2. after watching the Korean dramas Playful Kiss & Rooftop Prince I madly wanted to taste the Omurice… thanks 4 the recipe, I’ll enjoy cooking & eating Omurice !

  3. RoofTop Prince made me wanna do this recipe so badly ,, Cause it Looked so amazing in the Darama when Park yoochun was eating it
    Exactly as it Looks in the pics shown
    Thank you for the recipe <3

    • I hope you enjoy the recipe, Loca! I’ve got to watch that TV show soon. Everyone visiting this page all seem to be influenced by that. 🙂

  4. yeah, i made a search because i wonder how the rangers and the prince love this omurice…will try this one…i love rooftop prince …the best ever..thanks for posting.. and im glad, i have others who shared the same feeling as i am…

  5. Ouh my no doubt after watching the Roof Top Prince, i kinda like the simple meal prepared by Park Ha. And here I am looking into the recipe, indeed its simple and straightforward. Thanks for sharing, at least now i know what i do if i have left over rice which normally gosh into the rubbish bin.

  6. I was craving for omurice after watching Rooftop Prince =)
    Thats why Im here. Looking for its recipe….
    For Sandra, do not soaked the rice, use the steamed rice instead(the normal way on how to cooked the rice).
    Thanks for sharing the recipe =)

  7. Hi
    Does anyone have thoughts on how long you need to soak your rice before cooking? My grandmother did it overnight and it tasted great but sometimes you just forget to do it the night before.

  8. Great recipe. But I find it delicious with Green Paprika and extra garlic as well. Too bad, most restaurants in Korea pour massive amounts of flavour enhancers in virtually all dishes including omurice.

  9. Sounds ghastly.
    This is not Korean food. It seems Korean-American – yes that pejorative is needed to justify this utterly horrible recipe.

  10. Ah! This recipe is amazing! Thanks so much for posting it. I have always wanted to try this, but was scared because I didn’t know what was in it or how to make it. The tutorial and pictures are great! Looks like I know what I’m making for dinner tonight!! ~~~ヾ(^∇^)

  11. Oh my gosh! I pack my lunch for my older sister (who is a big lazy bum that can’t make her own lunch ^^) and myself. I grew up eating omurice when I lived in Korea. I haven;t had once since I was eight! I going to make them mini-omurice tomorrow as a special becasue tomorrow is the end of my sister’s SAT testing!!

  12. this is such a cute way to make an omurice
    ive also been drooling over omurice and the demiglace sauce since watching lunch queen too ~~~
    i really want to make it sometime

  13. Your Omurice recipe is the best one I found on the net. Maybe because its the closest that resembles my mother’s recipe. Thank you! 🙂

  14. Ingenious! Most of the time I am lazy and will only make thin omelets, then roll and cut them in strips to pile on top of fried rice, or worse, I just include scrambled egg in the fried rice. Omuraisu in it’s real form has eluded me! I will try your idea next time–great looking result for such a simple technique.

  15. Hi Sue, I have tried it for dinner tonight. It was a success. It’s so easy to make, and yet it looked like a cuisine ^^. Thanks so much. I will be trying more of your Korean dishes.

  16. I didn’t know this was an actual dish, I thought it was just something my Kinapa invented 🙂 I love to make this with some SPAM or chicken and some ranch dressing as a dip, weird, huh? And that’s a great idea to cut the cross on top and eat it that way, I’ll have to try this next time!

  17. Thanks everyone for your kind words. I didn’t expect these sensational reactions to this omelet. 🙂 I really hope you and your families enjoy having your omelet as much as I did. Good luck to you all!

  18. I’ve just drooled all over my keyboard. I just found this site and am really excited. Omurice is one of my favorite dishes from my childhood. My mom would never take the care in crafting the shape of the omelette like you’ve done so well, but it looks just like I remember tasting it. so so so good.

  19. yeah, omurice. i’ve been craving for that since i’ve seen lunch queen as well. omurice with demiglace sauce. 😀
    this looks wonderful. thanks for sharing the recipe. 😀 gotta try this. 😀

  20. Our almost 3yr old saw a photo of your masterpiece and said “YUM!”. He took the words right out of my mouth. I’ll be making it on the weekend.

  21. That’s a neat idea to cover the rice with the egg. 🙂 I don’t like to spend time dicing vegetables too, so I usually buy them frozen. If I buy them fresh, sometimes I cannot finish what I bought anyway.

  22. wow!!! that is a very innovative way of making omurice… I always think it’s very complicated to envelope the fried rice inside the omelette. I have been drooling over omurice ever since i watch the japanese drama “lunch queen”

    Bravo!!!

    Nice presentation too!!!
