homemade bibimbop

While I was making bimbimbop in a frying pan instead of a hot stone bowl, I took cues from my husband whose influence in the kitchen is Asian inspired and has had bimbimbap in the past multiple times. When he said it tasted amazing and authentic, I knew I had hit the jackpot! You can make it vegetarian by using tofu instead of the meat.
