bibimwhat?

Looks pretty good eh? So I *almost* invested in a stone pot but came to my senses because other than the random bibimbap what other use do I have or a freakin’ stone pot? Shockingly, I got the recipe for this one on Food Network. Apparently, courtesy of Bobby Flay. As usual, I used the recipe as more of a guideline and ventured off into other parts unknown (read: using whatever veggies I already had on hand). Here are all the parts of my masterpiece.

  • underneath it all is the foundation of Asian food culture: steamed rice.
  • the green mass at the top: baby bok choy sauteed in a lil’ bit of sesame oil
  • julienned carrots
  • bean sprouts boiled in water for 5 minutes than drizzled with sesame oil and tossed with sesame seeds and chopped green onion
  • super thin sliced beef marinated in vinegar, soy sauce (2:1), a dash of sugar, chopped garlic and stir fried with chopped onions
  • mushroom stir fried in a teensy bit of sesame oil and finished with a splash of soy sauce
  • a fried egg seasoned with cracked black pepper
  • 1 tbsp of red pepper paste, 1/4 tsp of sesame seeds, 1/4 tsp of sugar, and 1/2 tsp of sesame oil mixed up

Post-major mash up:
