Bodine Family Bibimbap Night!

Tonight is Bibimbap night in our house. For those of you who don't know, I used to work at a Korean restaurant & have a few favorites that we make at home. Bibimbap is a family favorite, easy to make, only takes one weird ingredient that can be found at any oriental market. Here's how it's made.
Ingredients: steamed rice, whatever veggies you like, cooked/diced meat (if desired - not necessary), eggs, kim chee, soy sauce, sesame oil, cocojun sauce (a sweet pepper paste found at the oriental market (see below for picture)
Directions: Steam your rice, cook your meat and veggies (separately or together), fry your egg in sesame oil over-easy.

Then place a mound of rice in your bowl. Around the edges of your rice place small bits of your meat and different veggies. Don't forget the Kim Chee! If you have seaweed it's good in this also. (as you can see I made mine with frozen stir fry veggies, but the Koreans use meats and veggies they have on-hand). On top, place an egg. Drizzle with sesame oil and soy sauce. Place a spoonful of cocojun sauce on the side.

THEN comes the fun part! Mix it all together and eat! The egg yolk, oil, and sauce mixes together to create a delicious flavor! I leave the cocojun out for the kids, it's kind of spicy.
