Modified a recipe I found on-line. Not sure where it was from. This says spicy but it wasn't for my family. Maybe adding more paste would help, but I choose to keep it milder for the kids.
I think this would be easy for the crockpot. DH says it reminds him of a Korean Pot Roast, but with chicken;)

Here is a favourite recipe of mine, it's packed with nutrients, and really easy to make with whatever veggies or meat you have on hand, or you can leave the meat out for vegetarian fare....

I actually used a cut called "Sandwich Steak" at my grocery store, I couldn't find it on here though, so I put in the flank steak cut.

The bibimbab sauce is actually a red pepper paste mixed with sesame oil, that can be found in most Asian markets (or if you have a really great International Section in your supermarket). If you find just the paste, then add a bit of oil at a time til you get a taste you like :)

I used my steamer for my rice and chopped veggies while the meat cooked, great multi-tasking lol...

The key ingredient for the proper flavour is the sesame oil! I tried to sub different oils, but it just doesn't taste very good, unless it's sesame.

I think the egg is the icing on this recipe, it makes it very authentic! (I lived in South Korea for a year, and ate this every other day!)

This is very filling, if I eat a serving for lunch, it really takes me past that 3:00 Snack Monster, I think because of the protein in it :)

A Yankee's attempt at a classic Korean dish. This is a spicy high sodium dish.

This veggie stock has a stronger, richer flavor than most.
