Fabulous, sauce is essential

We couldn't stop raving about this. My goodnesss but it's good!  The gochujang sauce is absolutely essential and worth a trip to an Asian market or ordering online. For two of us, I doubled the recipe but tripled the sauce.  I also made black rice and white jasmine instead of brown.  My husband had about double the rice, but I was happy (and very full) with exactly what the recipe calls for. Be sure to keep your egg soft so it will break & run over the rest of things in the bowl to add flavor and moisture to the whole.

We LOVE this one and I make it quite often! We usually double the spicy aioli. 

Taste explosion!

We omitted the egg in exchange for more shrimp but oh this is a yum-may bowl.  I can only imagine how good the egg would be too.  Hubby wants more sauce next time.  And next time we go with the egg on top too.

Made this tonight and it was very very good! Though the recipe didn't specify to do so, I made sure to properly season each component and mixed some of the sauce into the rice. That sauce is the star of the show, by the way. Overall, a great recipe!
