Rolled omelette

Gyeran-mari 계란말이

This recipe for Korean rolled omelette is very easy, and  it’s one of the most popular and common dishes for a Korean dosirak (lunchbox). This is because it’s easy to make, looks beautiful, goes well with rice, and can last for hours in a lunchbox and still look delicious and fluffy when you open it.

But it’s not just only for dosirak, you can enjoy it any time as a side dish. It’s meant to go with rice so it’s a little salty, so if you eat it by itself reduce the amount of salt you use.

By the way this recipe is a remake from a long time ago! The old video is still available but it’s a little confusing because it’s three egg dishes in one video. This new one is much clearer for you to follow. Enjoy the recipe!

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ chopped medium size onion, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black (or white) pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced green bell pepper, optional
  • 1 tablespoon minced red bell pepper (or minced carrot), optional
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions

  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and add the salt. Beat with a whisk or a fork. Stir in the onion, ground black pepper. Add red and green bell pepper if you use. Mix it with a spoon. Put the vegetable oil in a small bowl and have a basting brush ready.Korean rolled omlet mixture
  2. Heat up a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is heated, lower the heat to medium low or low. Dip the brush into the oil and brush the skillet. Spoon about ⅓ of the egg mixture into the skillet. Spread the egg mixture evenly with the spoon into a thin, rectangular pancake. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until the bottom is set but the top is still a little runny.
  3. Lift up the right edge of the rectangle with your spatula and roll it up from right to left. Brush some oil on the cleared part of the skillet and move the rolled egg back to the right side of the oiled part of the skillet.Korean rolled omlet
  4. Spoon half of the remaining egg mixture into the skillet, just to the left of the omelet roll so that the eggs run into the bottom edge and extend the omelet you already cooked, shaping it into a rectangle. Let this new layer cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until set on the bottom but still a little bit runny on top.
  5. Using a spatula, turn the rolled omelet over onto the new egg pancake and roll up the omelet from right to left. You will now have a roll on the left side. Brush the skillet with the remaining oil and push the omelet roll back over to the far right side.Korean rolled omlet
  6. Repeat Step 4 with the remaining egg mixture. When the last layer has set, roll up the omelet again from right to left into a long, even, rectangular shape. Reduce the heat to low and cook, turning the omelet so that the 4 sides cook evenly, 3 to 4 minutes.Korean rolled omlet
  7. Remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the omelet to a cutting board. If you need to shape it into a better rectangle, wrap in a gimbap mat and press and shape it with your hands. Let it cool for 5 minutes, then cut crosswise into ½ or ¾ inch slices and serve it with rice.Korean rolled omlet
