Recipe of the Day

Bibimbap - Recipezaar

I first discovered this dish at a Korean restaurant in Austin. It has since become one of the most common things for me to order when we go to Red Pepper here in Angelo. A good and hearty meal that I think is ideal for cooler weather. If you walk away hungry after this meal, then you should look into competitive eating. Seriously though, this is a great dish.
