bi bim bop

bi bim bop is a korean rice dish with meat, vegetables, pickles or kimchi, raw egg and sauce, traditionally served in a roaring hot stone bowl. when you mix everything together, the bowl heats everything, cooks the egg a little and produces yummy toasted rice around the outside.

it’s easy and delicious to recreate at home, even if you don’t have roaring hot stone bowls. my adaptation uses regular cooked white rice and a soft-boiled egg rather than raw.


for other toppings, i had:

  • sauteed chard with garlic and maggi sauce
  • sauteed mushrooms with sesame oil and sesame seeds
  • carrot and diakon radish pickles (leftover from banh mi!)
  • roasted tofu
  • sliced green onion
  • traditional garlic-chili sauce that he made

i thought it turned out great. the mix of flavors is so yummy and it very much feels like comfort food, while being healthy and full of veggies.
