Korean-Style Beef and Rice.

... "I had a great weekend with James and Maxwell. From Hungarian to Japanese and all the pastries and movie food in between - I need to up my game a little bit. I shouldn't be walking around, but no one can take the chef out of me - regardless if I had knee surgery and all I wanted when I got home was dol sot bibimbap ...

Korean-Style Beef and Rice - Bean Sprouts. Carrot. Cucumber. Seasoned Rice Vinegar. Short-Grain White Rice. Water. Blade Steak. Soy Sauce. Vegetable Oil. Shiitake Mushrooms. Garlic. Spinach. S & P. Egg. Toasted Sesame Oil.


Gochujang Sauce: Gochujang (Korean Hot Pepper Paste). Garlic. Ginger. Scallion. Toasted Sesame Oil. Toasted Sesame Seeds.

Kimchi: Napa Cabbage. Kosher Salt. Garlic. Gochugaru (Korean Chili Powder). Sugar. Fish Sauce. Soy Sauce. Ginger. Salted Shrimp. Scallions. Leek. Carrot.

Granted this dish is a labor of love not to mention this is only an adaptation of the original dol sot bibimbap. Like the Korean proverb goes: 고생 끝에 낙이 온다 (Go-saeng Ggeut-eh naki eun-da) ... 'At the end of hardship comes happiness.' The hardship here was the pain surging through my knee while cooking today. However, the happiness is the end result. One beautiful dish that filled me up. With the said, I'm going to take my pain killer pills and fall asleep. I know that I'm going to be dreaming about something delicious ..." /dreaming about my next meal
