Begin by cooking the rice either boiled or rice cooker, read the packet for instructions. In South Korea we usually eat short or medium grained rice but long grain is ok. Begin by cutting all the vegetables and meat in to small cubes, put some oil in a pan and throw in all the vegetables and meat and allow to cook while seasoning with a pinch of salt.
