I first had bibimbap at Graze, one of my favorite restaurants in Madison. Bibimbap was described to me as "korean comfort food," and I can't think of a better thing to call it. It is a hot bowl of crispy rice layered with an array of sauteed vegetables, marinated and sauteed beef, and topped with a fried egg. You break the yolk and mix it with the sauce, stir everything together, and then eat it. It's delicious.
The other day Richard and I remembered having bibimbap and Graze, and decided we wanted to try to make it ourselves. We had a little trouble getting the rice crispy, but overall it turned out amazing. We used bok choy, zucchini, carrots, and mushrooms, but you can really use any vegetables you want.
