It’s hard to believe that it has been almost 3 years since I posted my recipe for Lemon Protein Jello (or my fancy name for it, Creme de limon gelée). Instead of protein powder, I revamped Jello with supplements that lifters typically use. You can use the same combination of BCAA’s and pre-workout powder that I used or just stick with a single supplement for the Jello.

Bibimbap is one of the most popular Korean dishes. Usually, it is made with beef, a fried egg, and cooked vegetables on a bed of steamed rice. This “lazy” version allows you to use the slow cooker to brown the beef and cook the vegetables. You can go about your day as usual and all you have to do is assemble the dish when it’s all cooked.
