Marinate the beef with 125 ml bulgogi sauce for half an hour.
Put the dried shiitake mushroom in a bowl and pour boiling water over it, let them soak for 30 minutes until it has softened. Cut the hard pieces away from the stem. Gently squeeze the mushrooms and dry it out with paper. Cut the shiitake mushroom into small strips.
Put the rice grains in a rice cooker and fill the pan half with water. Gently use your fingers to spin the water in circles until the water turns thick. Pour the water away and use your hand to keep the rice in the pan. Repeat this process 3 or 4 times until you see clear water. Fill the rice cooker with 1,5 times more water until the rice is about 1 to 1,5 finger below water.
Put 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds in a pan without oil. Roast the seeds for 2 minutes and separate them or use ready-made roasted seeds.
Heat a little bit of oil in a pan, add the carrots and cook it until done. Sprinkle the carrots with some sesame oil and a pinch of salt en put it aside. Repeat this process for the spinach and bean sprouts.
Heat a little bit of oil in a pan, and cook the bulgogi sauce and shiitake mushrooms separately on high heat and put it aside separately.
Put 2 scoops of a medium pre-heated bowl of rice and put the bulgogi and the vegetables in the bowl. Add each ingredient in a round shape, so all colors are beautifully displayed, and then put the fried egg above the dish. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on the dish and finally mix all the ingredients with gochujang paste.
