What’s the best part of slow cooker Sunday? Besides a hot yummy meal cooking while you are out working or drinking coffee in the sunshine? Slow cooker leftovers! If you are going to have your slow cooker working for you, you might as well have it do a double shift and you have two meals done for you as you go to the zoo and watch the lion feeding- which I might add is very interesting! Not the feeding per se but the side show! Did you know that the male lion sprays urine on the bystanders to mark his territory? It makes for great entertainment! Well, if you are not sitting in the ‘splash zone’! 🙂
Slow cooker Sunday included a big pork roast with this fabulous recipe from Six Sisters stuff. I have tried lots of different pulled pork recipes, but this one is something special! The sandwiches we had with them were a.ma.z.ing but they played second fiddle to the leftovers the next day… pulled pork bibimbap. Need I say more? A fabulous fusion recipe that is fun to cook up and eat! The pulled pork is so deliciously saucy, you don’t need to add any spicy gojuchang (red pepper) sauce, but of course, everything is better with a little spice!
So scour your flyers for a pork something-something on sale and get slow-cooking! You won’t be sorry! And maybe you can catch the lion feeding at the zoo with all your free time!
- 5 cups cooked medium grain rice (hot)
- 2 carrots sliced up thinly
- 1/2 zucchini sliced up thinly
- 2 cups left over pulled pork
- 6 eggs
- toasted sesame seeds
- sesame oil
- 150 g blanched and drained spinach
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1/4 tbsp sesame oil
- Heat sesame oil on the bottom of the pan
- Add 3/4c cooked rice
- Top with 2-3 tbsp each of sliced carrots, sliced zucchini, sesame spinach
- Top also with 1/3 cup pulled pork
- Crack an egg on top
- Sprinkle with sesame seeds
- Mix it up until the egg is fully cooked.
Bibimbap translates 'mixed rice'. So once served, the heat from the pot and the rice will cook the egg as you mix. So mix well and ensure that the pot is good and hot! Another option is to fry the carrots, zucchini and the egg separately and serve in a normal bowl.
All mixed up and ready to devour!
