Bi Bim Bap... My way

So I have an AMAZING friend who's husband is Korean.  She has introduced me to the world of Korean Cuisine.  In one word... YUM! I am fascinated by not only the flavors but the colors and the textures.  I have decided that my favorite dish is Bi Bim Bap... funny name huh.  I thought so too... but really it is amazing... you can make it vegan by omitting the shrimp and the egg.

2 Cups Calrose Rice, Rinsed 2-3 times
4 Cups Water
2 Tablespoons Vegan Butter, (or reg butter)
2 Teaspoons Garlic Salt

Set in your rice maker.

Hot  Toppings

1 Pound Meat, (I used shrimp)
1/2 Onions
3-4 Cloves Garlic
1 1/2 Cups Shredded Carrots, (Buy them like this... saves so much time)
4 Cups Spinach or Tatsoi
1 1/2 Cups Baby Bellas, sliced
1 1/2 Cups Broccoli, chopped
1 Tablespoons, Minced Ginger

Cold Toppings
Kimchi (MMMmmmm My Favorite)
Asian Hot Sauce
Chopped Cilantro
Chopped Green Onions
Sesame Seeds, I used Black... for color

Measure 2 cups of Calrose Rice and put in the rice maker bowl

Rinse thoroughly... 2-3 times

Drain water and add 4 cups of water...

Add 2 Tablespoons Butter and 1 Teaspoons Garlic Salt

Set the Rice Maker

To make this easy and fast to make .. chop everything and have it ready to go.  You will only need 1 pan!

In a hot pan add about 2 Tablespoons Oil ... Heat ... Add Shrimp, 1/2 the Garlic, and the Minced Ginger.  Cook until just cooked.  Take out of pan and set aside.

Add another 2 Tablespoons of oil and add the Mushrooms and the onions.  Cook until onions are tender take out of pan and set aside.

In the same pan add another 2 tablespoons of oil and add the Broccoli with the remaining garlic. Cook and set aside.

In the same pan... add another 2 Tablespoons of oil and cook carrots and Tatsoi or Spinach.   Cook and take out of pan, set aside.

Cook your egg ... over easy or over medium.

To plate place 2 beautiful mounds of rice.

Add your condiments around the rice

Add your cold condiments.

Put your fried egg on top and garnish with Green Onions and Sesame Seeds.
