I absolutely LOVE to say this word... Bi-Bim-pap! It's so fun when you say it so fast! And it makes me truly feel Asian because everybody around me doesn't know what the hell I'm talking about. It's AWESOME!

Ok... you can tell I'm just in a great, giddy mood. I am for 2 reasons: #1) I'm off of work today. I haven't have a Wednesday off in... well... a long time. Albeit I have to go to class at 5:30, but still, I have a beautiful day that I can just do whatever I want with. But Wednesdays, most importantly, is lunch day with my pharmacist friends! Which we have not gone to lunch in, well... a LONG time, so it's great! And #2) I got a B + on my Organic Chemistry lab exam... BEFORE a curve... so hopefully, WITH a curve, it turns into an A. And here's the kicker... I only studied for an hour. That, my friends, deserves a pat on the back. Go me.


1 cup basmati rice, cooked
2 eggs, fried any way you like them (I did some over-easy and sunny-side up)
1 cup roughly shredded/chopped chicken (I used the leftover wing meat from monday's recipe)
2 carrots, sliced and blanched
1 English cucumber, sliced
20 or so brussels sprouts, quartered and blanched
2 tablespoons Asian sesame dressing

This is pretty much a prep and put together kind of meal. I heated up a teaspoon of olive oil and lightly sauteed the shredded chicken. Since it was already seasoned from the previous day's wing recipe, it took on this smoky flavor after cooking it in the pan. It was quite delicious.

After blanching the vegetables, I separately sauteed each in the same pan for about 1-2 minutes each, just to kind of get a semi-browning on them.

This is supposed to go in a large bowl, but I thought it would look better on a large plate, so just place each vegetable, chicken, and rice, along the edge of the plate, kind of in a circular fashion (you can see why I was supposed to use a bowl) and place the fried egg in the middle. Top the rice with a little bit of Asian sesame dressing and dig in!

I love bibimpap because it's really one of those meals where you can eat it any way you want to. You can eat each piece individually or mix the whole thing together like a stir fry. And it's so versatile! You can really use any protein, any vegetables, and place an egg in the middle and you got bibimpap! And plus, it's just so fun to say! Bibimpap, bibimpap, bibimpap! Ok... I'll stop now. Enjoy!
