Kimchi fried rice

Rice with kimchi is a very simple and delicious dish. If I have no idea for dinner and I have kimchi in the fridge, the choice is obvious. If I have cooked rice, then the whole dish should not take more than 20 minutes. The recipe I give you is the simplest version of this dish. Once I added to this recipe sliced ribs from the previous day and to be honest, it was delicious. Do not skip the butter in the recipe (well, unless someone is a vegan), because it enriches the taste.

4. In the meantime, fry the eggs. You can make ordinary eggs fried in a pan. I made a simple omelette with spilled eggs with a little salt and sugar. Cut fried eggs (or omelette).
