Delicious dolsot bibimbap

Ironically, while I was in China, I fell in love with Korean food. While Chinese food is also delicious, it tends to be quite greasy and heavy. Korean food, on the other hand, is much less oily and has more sophisticated flavors. One of my favorite Korean dishes is called dolsot bibimbap, a hearty and satisfying rice dish. White rice is put into a sizzling clay pot and topped off with an array of cooked vegetables (often spinach, zucchini, carrots and bean sprouts), Korean barbecued meat or kalbi, and an egg which can either be raw or fried. The clay pot arrives at the table sizzling hot, and the diner can mix all the ingredients together so the rice absorbs the flavors and becomes crispy on the bottom. A mildly spicy hot sauce is served on the side and tastes wonderful when mixed into the dolsot bibimbap.

Here is a link I found which offers a recipe for bibimbap, which is exactly the same as dolsto bibimbap except that it is not served in the sizzling clay pot.
