"Adapted from a recipe by Nick Kindelsperger at Serious Eats. If served in a super-hot cast iron or stone casserole, this is called "dol sot bibim bap," and will form a deliciously crunchy layer on the bottom of the dish..."

  1. Oh my gosh, I love this stuff!! Cant get enough. Thanks so much for adding this recipe!
  2. I heated my stone bowl in the oven at 350 degrees for one hour. Before adding ingredients to the bowl, I brushed in a small amount of sesame oil. This meat mixture tastes awesome!!! It would make a great mixture for egg rolls or dim sum. Great recipe!


I'm a 48 y/o gay Jewish man in the suburbs immediately north of New York City. I'm a general internist, practicing and teaching at a medical college north of NYC. I also earned a Masters in Public Health degree in 2013. After a Walt Disney World trip in Dec 2006 where I had to rent an electric scooter because I couldn't manage the walking, I decided to have gastric bypass surgery, which was done Feb 28, 2007. I lost 160 lbs (though I've gained back about 60 of that since). I can't eat as much as I used to, so I want every bite to be extra good!
