Meals with rice are favorites at my house. Generally speaking, we use this ingredient on a daily basis, from deliciosa rice soups to rice pudding. After visiting one of the most famous restaurants in Los Angeles, I felt inspired to prepare a different dish. I made a riquísimo kimchi fried rice. Kimchi is one of the most popular foods in Korea. It has become a hit worldwide for its nutritional properties and fantastic sabor. For this recipe, you can venture out and try to prepare your own kimchi, or purchase it ready-made to save additional time. This recipe is ideal for those days when you have lots of time, or leftover rice on hand.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup fermented cabbage kimchi, finely chopped
  • 2 cups white rice, cooked (preferably Japanese rice)
  • Crushed red pepper (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Eggs (optional)

Directions

  • 1
    In a frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • 2
    Add the kimchi and stir constantly for about 5 minutes. For even better sabor, add a few teaspoons of kimchi juice.
  • 3
    Add the rice and crushed red pepper. Salt and pepper, and stir well.
  • 4
    Cook for an additional 5 minutes until all the rice has heated up in a uniform fashion. To obtain the famous "sticky rice," let cook over medium-high heat without stirring for a few minutes.
  • 5
    Fry the eggs. Serve the fried rice with a fried egg over the top.

  • Using rice that has already been cooked is ideal, but you may also cook rice at the time of recipe preparation.
