Vegetarian Korean Rice Bowl

By Friday, I often find my pantry and refrigerator down to some greens, rice, and eggs. I remembered reading an article on Korean barbeque and specifically the dish, Bibimbap. One of the most iconic dishes of Korea, bibimbap, is a bowl of sticky rice topped with vegetables, meat or seafood and a fried egg. Here I have reserved the marinade usually used for grilling the meat or seafood for seasonal greens, added in some fresh raw vegetables, and topped it all with a fried egg. My kids had fun stirring the egg into the greens and rice, and eating with chopsticks!


Asian Pork Noodle Bowl

I remember my mom taking a Chinese cooking class and practicing on us at home the dishes she learned. The flavors were different than the Filipino cooking I was used to, but just as vibrant and most delicious. I was hooked! While I never took a class as an adult, I have tried my best to create authentic Chinese at home for my family via a step-by-step cook book I found in a discount store. There are some basic steps to a great Chinese stir-fry (cook meat, cook veggies, add cornstarch-based sauce, add back in meat) and my version below stays true to its Chinese roots. I love to make Chinese stir fries on nights I need a quick, one-pot meal. This pork noodle bowl fits the bill nicely!
