Gyeran Mari (Korean Egg Roll, 계란말이)
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 4 Eggs
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 Green onions, chopped (Approximately 2 Tbs.)
  • 1 Small green or red chili, seeded, chopped (Approximately 1 tsp.)
  • 2 Tbs. Chopped carrot or red pepper
  • 2 Tbs. Chopped spam, ham, sausage or hotdog
  • 1Tbs. Cooking oil
  1. In a mixing bowl, crack 4 eggs; add salt and beat until smooth.
  2. Add in green onion, chili, carrot and spam to beaten egg and mix well.
  3. Heat a 8.5” square or 9” round skillet over medium high heat; add oil and swipe with a paper towel to apply oil as thin as possible.
  4. When skillet is hot, pour ¼ of egg mixture and scramble; push and place on a side that closer to you. So you will have room to roll it.
  5. Reduce heat to medium low and add another ¼ of egg mixture; swirl to spread evenly. Make sure uncooked egg mixture’s attached to the first batch of cooked egg mixture.
  6. Lift up the end nearest you and tuck over, rolling upwards tightly using a spatula or chopsticks. Push and place on a side that closer to you again and repeat twice more with rest of uncooked egg mixture.
  7. Remove from heat and let Gyeran Mari rest in skillet about 1 to 2 minutes.
  8. If you have a sushi roller, it’s a great tool to roll Gyeran Mari in and re-shape. This way, you can fix Gyeran Mari shape even though you mess up a bit. ;-) But it’s not necessary.
  9. Slice Gyeran Mari into 1” wide bite size pieces and serve.
  10. Enjoy!
If you would like to, you can add cheese in the middle. I recommend mozzarella or any other type of cheese that easily melt. We call Cheese Gyeran Mari! :-)
