Bibimbap (rice with meat and veggies)

Rice is the foundation of most Korean meals, and bibimbap is the classic casserole of rice, vegetables, and marinated beef and kimchi. Rice—ideally golden-crusted on the bottom—in a hot stone pot is hidden beneath a colorful display of julienned carrots, bean sprouts, cucumber pickles, mushrooms, boiled spinach, plus a fried egg. Poke a fork or chopstick into the yolk and mix together to serve.
