Chef Roy Choi’s Kimchi Fried Rice is the best way to reinvigorate day-old rice with spicy, potent kimchi. The kimchi actually sweetens when heated and adds not only its signature funk, tang, and spice but also a delicious crunch. The briny, spicy dipping sauce is the perfect punchy accompaniment.

Stir in kimchi, broth, and 3 tablespoons sauce. Cook, stirring often, until crispy, about 3 minutes. Add butter, and stir until melted. Remove from heat. Divide rice mixture between 2 bowls, and serve with remaining sauce.
