Gok's Asian brunch

Gok is back in the kitchen to bring us his tasty Korean inspired take on the classic bubble & squeak. Served with a poached egg, chilli and sweet soy - it’s the perfect brunch recipe.

Miso bubble and squeak with poached egg

makes 6


2 large potatoes, cut into chunks

Oil for frying 

1 white onion, cut into small strips 

2 garlic cloves, minced 

1.5cm ginger root, minced 

½ fat green chilli, finely chopped 

½ small spring cabbage, cut into small coleslaw strips 

6 dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked, stalks removed and sliced

1 carrot, cut into small batons 

handful of chopped bean sprouts 

2 tbsp mushroom stir fry sauce 

2 tbsp white miso paste 

1 tbsp light soy 

1 tbsp dark Soy

1 tsp sugar

dash of Sesame oil

2 egg yolks

6 spring onions, chopped small 

½ tsp Japanese chilli pepper 

Salt and white pepper 

plain flour, to coat

1 egg, beaten

180g Panko breadcrumbs

Japanese chilli pepper

oil, for frying

To serve

poached eggs

pea shoots

kecap manis

chopped spring onions 

finely diced red chilli


1. Add the potatoes to a large pan of cold water. Add a pinch of salt, then bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through. Drain, and then lightly crush.

2. Fry off the onions in a little oil for 5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and chilli and cook for 2 minutes. 

3. Add all the vegetables and fry for 3 minutes, then add the mushroom stir fry sauce, miso, light and dark soy, sugar and season - you may need a little water to loosen the mixture. Cook until the vegetables are very soft. When cooked add a dash of sesame oil and Japanese chilli pepper.

4. Add the stir fried vegetables to the crushed potatoes, along with the egg yolks and spring onions. Mix together and shape into patties, then chill for 20 minutes.

5. After the patties have chilled, dust them in flour, dip in beaten egg and coat in breadcrumbs.

6. Serve with runny poached eggs, pea shoots, chopped red chilli and spring onions and a drizzle of kecap manis.
