Spicy Beef & Cured Yolk Rice Bowl

Introduction: Spicy Beef & Cured Yolk Rice Bowl

This rice bowl is real easy to make and tastes great too. The cured egg was new for me, but is brilliant. It tasted really good in the rice bowl and had just the right amount of spiciness. This recipe can also be found at gardengirlrecipes.com.

    Would Sriracha work instead of gochujang?

    I haven't tried it, but it seems like it would produce a different flavor. I purchased the gochujang from yummybazaar.com.
