Today, we'll be taking fried rice recipes from Jennie from Blackpink, Rich Brian, David Chang, and a fried rice God himself, Uncle Roger. Now, which celebrity has the best fried rice? Let's find out. First up, we have Jennie from Blackpink's recipe for the popular Korean dish, kimchi fried rice. We're gonna start off by thinly slicing some scallions. We're gonna be using both the greens and the white, so no waste. Next up, we're gonna cut up some thick slices of pork belly, and put that to the side. Now, we're gonna mix up some kimchi. Make sure you wear gloves, so you don't get no kimchi juice in your eye. In a pan, we're gonna saute our pork belly until it gets a little bit of color. Once that's done, you're gonna throw in your kimchi, a little bit of scallion, and cook that out. We're gonna add our rice, fry it up for a bit, season it with salt and pepper, and then we're gonna add some seasoned gochujang. Before serving, we're gonna finish it up with some fresh scallion. And there you have it, Jennie's kimchi fried rice. Visually. I am stimulated. I see the scallions, a little spicy. Now, let's give this a try. It's got a little bit of a kick to it. It's mild. It's definitely not too overpowering. The meat, very different than what I'm used to for fried rice, but it tastes good. This tastes okay, but this might not be my pick. It's good. I like it. It's still kind of has that Korean flavor. Next up in the rings is Rich Brian with his take on the Indonesian national dish, nasi goreng. In a saute pan, we're gonna throw in some canola oil, a couple of tablespoons of Cananut Spice Mix, and some chopped garlic. We're gonna cook out the Cananut Spice Mix until it gets fragrant, then we're gonna add in our chopped chicken pieces. We're gonna make a well in the center, scramble an egg, and cook it up. To that, we're gonna add some leftover rice, throw in some seasoning, some white pepper, some turmeric, some salt, and kikkoman, which is some sweet soy. I'm gonna fry it up until it gets nice and colorful. To that, we're gonna add some fresh chopped scallions. If it ain't cracking enough already, Rich Brian tops it off with a nicely fried egg. I think this one's a contender. There you have it. Rich Brian's nasi goreng. Smells good. Visually, it looks promising. It kinda smells more like Southeast Asian. Mm-hmm (affirmative). Oh yeah. It's a flavor explosion in my mouth. I taste the curry. There's a kick of spice. It's kind of lacking salt. I wish there was a little more salt in here. Not bad. Definitely not bad. I love it. A lot of mixture of spices, like different flavors. I don't really taste much, like, sweet or salty. There's kind of, like, a spice that dominates it. All right, so next up we have David Chang's spin on Chinese fried rice. We're gonna start off by thinly slicing some scallions, and putting that to the side. Now, we're gonna roughly chop an onion, and also put that to the side. We're gonna mince up some garlic, and now we're gonna chop up our bacon into lardons. We're gonna fry out the bacon for about 10 to 15 minutes, until it gets nice and crispy. In the same bacon fat, we're gonna saute our onions and peas. Once the onions get a little bit of color, we're gonna mix it up with our bacon. In a clean pan, we're gonna throw on a little bit of oil, our leftover rice. We're gonna make a well in the middle, add in two eggs, some scallion, and we're gonna fry that up altogether. Once the rice is nicely fried, we're gonna throw in our peas, onions and bacon mixture and mix it up. We're gonna season it with some soy sauce, some fish sauce, a couple of drops of lime juice. If you didn't know, now you know. David Chang's bacon fried rice. Ooh, okay. Look pretty simple in a good way. I love bacon. Bacon in anything is good. This is like maybe an American version of a fried rice. Yeah, I like this a lot. Most of the flavor, just from the oil and the pepper. This one also is very, very flavorful. Very sparing on the eggs. I wish there was more, but a lot of peas. Whoever made this loves peas. I would say this probably has the most smell to what I'm used to, which is like a Chinese Taiwanese version of fried rice. I feel like this is a little more upscale on the fried rice. And now everyone's favorite uncle, Uncle Roger, with his recipe for egg fried rice. We're gonna start off by scrambling one egg and one yolk in a bowl with chopsticks. Next up, we're gonna thinly slice some shallot. We're gonna mince up some garlic. Make sure you crush it. Thinly slice some long red chili, and set that to the side. In a hot wok, we're gonna throw in a couple of tablespoons of oil, our shallot and our egg. You want to fry the egg until it gets nice and fluffy. Once the egg is nice and fluffy, you're gonna throw in your leftover hainanese chicken rice. We're gonna fry that up until it gets nice and happy. Uncle Roger uses a little bit of pepper and soy sauce, and now we add Uncle Roger's most important ingredient - MSG. We're gonna fry that up until it gets nice and delicious. We're gonna throw in some freshly sliced scallions, our long red chilies, and there you have it. Uncle Roger's egg fried rice. Uncle Roger, please don't roast me. Visually, not so satisfying. I see a red chili, (it) smells good. There's a flavor in here that I'm not too fond of. Damn, it's actually tasting pretty good. There's definitely, like, some type of fish thing going on. This is just not it. It's very mushy, just because it's very monotonous in texture. I'm tasting a lot of garlic and ginger, but it's not overwhelming. I think it's done just right. Flavor profile to sum it up. Simple, spicy, fishy, delicious. So which one of these celebrities is gonna take the fried rice championship belt? Let's find out. I would say my favorite one would be number one, because that has the most flavor of all of them, and actually had, like, a good salt level. Okay, that's surprising. Okay. My favorite has got to be number three. I think it's simple. I think it really epitomizes what fried rice is all about, which is not a lot of ingredients, but a lot of flavor. David Chang. All right, there we go. I really liked the third one. I liked the bacon in there. I liked the peas. I liked the flavor. I don't really know who that is, but that tasted really good. About to hit up Momofuku, 'cause today David Chang is the champion. So what recipes do you want us to battle out next? Leave a comment below.
