    1. Grab a small pot and place over medium heat. Add equal parts hot water and rice. Once it comes to a boil, turn the heat down and cook for about 3 minutes.
    2. Place a large pan over high heat. Dice up your onion and grate your carrots. Chop up the chili and garlic. Add a couple of tablespoons of butter to your hot pan. Add the onions, carrots, chili, and garlic to the pan. Give it a good toss and season with salt. Give your kimchi a rough chop and add it to the pan. Now add your rice to the pan and stir to combine.
    3. Place a small, non-stick pan over high heat. Add a tablespoon of butter to the pan. Crack the egg into the pan, sprinkle with salt, and cook for 1 minute. After one minute, cover the pan and remove it from the heat. After about 30 seconds you will have a perfectly fried egg.
    4. Season the fried rice with salt and hit it with the soy sauce. Now grab a dinner plate. Pile the fried rice on the plate, lift the egg out of the butter, and plate on top of rice. Garnish with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.
    5. Hot Tip: Hot pan, little butter, crack egg, cook 1 minute, cover, remove from heat, wait 30 seconds, and the perfect fried egg
