Fried Egg on Rice

My daughter introduced me to this very simple yet delightful dish- where you take some hot steamed rice, and top it with a beautiful fried egg. That's it, there is nothing else to this dish. However, you are sure to fall in love with it- for its simplicity, and taste.

You need: 

1. Plain steamed rice- white or brown, your choice

2. 1 or 2 eggs- fried (poached will work too)

3. Optional- Soy sauce


All you gotta do is take some nice, hot steamed rice in a bowl and place your fried egg(s) on top. Add a drizzle of soy sauce, if you'd like and maybe some freshly ground pepper. 

Then comes the best part- use your spoon to poke the part with the yolk inside, and the yolk starts oozing out, and seeps into the rice..... mmm! That is delicious!! And you are overcome with this unexpected feeling of comfort with every spoonful of that rice, egg, and soy sauce. Yes, really! 

My daughter told me that this is a Korean dish. Korean or not- she and I love it!

This is partly Korean - with the addition of some pickled veggies and/or some meat strips, this would be considered Bi-bim-bap!
