Bibimbap! Korean dishes in Hubby's bento

My friend, Fania, recommends  me to make bibimbap for my hubby's bento menu. For your information,
Bibimbap (Korean pronunciation: [pibimbap][1]) is a popular Korean dish. The word literally means "mixed meal." Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating.[2] It can be served either cold or hot.
Vegetables commonly used in bibimbap include julienned cucumber, zucchini, mu (daikon), mushrooms, doraji (bellflower root), and gim, as well as spinach, soybean sprouts, and gosari (bracken fern stems). Dubu (tofu), either plain or sautéed, or a leaf of lettuce may be added, or chicken or seafood may be substituted for beef.[2] For visual appeal, the vegetables are often placed so that adjacent colors complement each other.
so, I made it this morning. But i guess, i'm not good enough in making this today. I presume it's because i didn't concentrate in sauteing the veges, and i suggest you--if you want to make this--always remember to wipe the pan clean before you start to sauteing the other vegetable after you did to the vegetable one before, even though the seasoning is the same. It will help to keep the color of the sauteed veges. Well, this is bento si ayah's version for its bibimbap:

Cooked rice
a package of bean-sprout
a bunch of spinach (i use water spinach because it has a crunchy texture and taste better when sauteed)
2 small size of zucchinis
5-7 shiitake mushroom
I use chicken as the katsu, but you can use minced-meat/ground beef for the dishes
1 small carrot, eggs 
soy sauce, hot pepper sauce, garlic, sesame seeds, sesame oil, and vegetable oil
  • Firstly-first is cook the rice. You can use a rice cooker or a stainless pot. Next, you need to prepare a large platter to put all your ingredients on. Rinse your  bean sprouts  put them in a pot with a cup of water. Add 1 ts of salt and cook for 2 minutes. Drain water and mix it with 1 clove of minced garlic, sesame oil and a pinch of salt. Put it on the platter.
  • Take 1 clove of minced garlic, saute it with water spinach. add soya sauce and give sugar to it for two minutes. then Put it on the platter.
  • Cut 2 small size zucchinis into thin strips, sprinkle them with a pinch of salt, and then mix them together. A few minutes later, saute them in a pan over high heat. When it’s cooked, it will look a little translucent. Put it on the platter.
  • Slice shitake mushrooms thinly and saute with 1 ts of vegetable oil. Add 2 ts of soy sauce and 1 or 2 ts of sugar and stir it for 2 minutes. Add some sesame oil, and put it on the platter.
  • On a heated pan, put some oil and 200 grams of ground beef and stir it. Add 4 cloves of minced garlic, 1 tbs of soy sauce, 1/2  tbs of sugar, a little grounded black pepper, and sesame oil.
  • Put it on the platter. But if you want to make katsu as the dishes, season the chicken fillet with garlic powder, pepper and salt and let stand for few minutes. take one in to the beaten eggs and wrap with bread crumbs before you fry it with low heat until the chicken cook well.
  • Cut a carrot into strips, saute it for 30 seconds and put it on the platter.
  • prepare eggs with sunny side up. (mine is not too 'sunny', because when i cooked it, i lid the pan)
  • Put your rice In a big bowl, and attractively display all your vegetables and meat t. Place the sunny side up egg on the center. Serve it with sesame oil and hot pepper paste. Lastly, mix it up and eat!
 There you go! ^____^d

In the other tier, i gave him baked potatoes with extra cheese. Maybe i baked it in the conventional oven and it was too hot, so the cheese looks slightly charred. And gave him fruits of strawberries, black grapes, sunkist and guava. I did put some low-fat raisins too. 

Meanwhile, i also made the baked potato with pasta for sale today. One of the buyer messaged me, and he said : DELICIOUS !! oh well..thank you so much :) My hubby insists to name this with "Mac Potato"... Oh well, as long as he pleased..that's ok with me :D :D

Oh, almost forget, choose a good quality of potato. 

Brush the peel and rinse for 2-3 times cleanly, so that you could eat the peel too. Before you bake it, steam it first. It will give you a finer-texture potato. :)
