Preparation Method

  1. Mix cucumber pieces with 1/4 cup gochujang paste in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Bring about 2 cups water to a boil in a large nonstick skillet and add the spinach; cook until the spinach is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain the spinach and squeeze out as much moisture as possible; Reserve the spinach in a bowl and stir the soy sauce into the spinach.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook, stirring the carrots until soft, about 3 minutes; Add the garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 1 minute longer.
  4. Add the cucumber pieces with the gochujang paste and sprinkle with red chilli flakes and set the mixture aside in a bowl.
  5. Place the meat in a clean non-stick frying pan over medium heat, about 5 minutes on each side, and set aside. In a separate nonstick skillet, heat an additional 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium-low heat and fry the eggs on one side only until the yolks are runny but the whites are firm, 2 to 4 minutes each.
  6. To assemble the dish, divide the cooked rice into 4 large bowls, top with the spinach mixture, a few pieces of meat and the cucumber mixture.
  7. Place 1 egg on top of each portion. Drizzle each bowl with 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, a pinch of sesame seeds and a small amount of gochujang paste, if desired.
