Walter Manzke, currently running the show at Republique in L.A., is one of SoCal's best chefs. Accordingly, many of his dishes are quite complicated ... but then, some are simple. This kimchi fried rice is easily assembled with store-bought ingredients, making it an ideal weeknight dinner.

2 oz. cooked beef short rib or steak, roughly chopped (1 inch. pieces)
