Elise Ballard says:

The butter in this recipe lends a richness and depth that makes it as hearty as can be, with no meat. The kimchi to rice ratio is just right - lots of zing and lots of cabbage mixed in with the brown rice. I ate mine with nori because I love nori and it goes well.

Never been much of a kimchi fan, but after trying out this recipe, I think I may have converted over. If you have some leftover white or brown rice, be sure to reserve it for this recipe. it's full of flavor and the fried egg on top ties everything together. Very happy with how quick and easy it is.

Favorite fried rice recipe. The only thing that would have made this dish better is if I would have used homemade kimchi, or maybe add some Korean beef. I'll try that next time.

I made the kimchi fried and added beef bulgogi. Such a hearty, tasty dish. It's one of my favorite recipes to make. I use store bought kimchi, but really, really want to try making my own.

I used oil instead of butter and made hard boil your eggs in my pressure cooker, as suggested in the tip box. Turned out great.
