  • Preheat oven to 250F. Line 9×5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Combine Impossible Burger, five spice, gochujang paste, garlic, chickpea flour, and salt in a large bowl and stir until fully combined. Spoon into prepared loaf pan and pack tightly, making sure the top is smooth.
  • Cover loaf pan tightly with foul. Fill 9×13 inch pan half way with water. Set loaf pan inside of water bath.
  • Bake for 1 hour, until Impossible Burger reaches an internal temperature of 145F. Remove loaf pan from water bath and cool at room temperature for 30 minutes. Once loaf pan is cool enough to handle, remove short ribs. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  • Remove from plastic wrap and slice into eighteen 1/2 inch thick rectangles.

For Korean BBQ Sauce

  • Combine soy sauce, sesame oil, mirin, rice wine vinegar, ginger paste, garlic, sambal olek, brown sugar, and 2 cups of water in medium saucepan. Bring to simmer over medium-low heat.

  • Place daikon and carrot in medium glass bowl. Pour cooled brine over vegetables. Rest for 30 minutes before serving.

For Cilantro-Lime Rice

  • Place rice and water in medium saucepan. Bring to rolling boil, uncovered, on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to simmer and cover with lid. Cook for 12 minutes, until water is absorbed by rice.

  • Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium heat for 5 minutes, until hot. Add sliced short ribs and cook for 1-2 minutes per side, until crispy. Add BBQ sauce to fully coat ribs.
  • Place 1 cup of cooked rice in each bowl. Top with 3 slices of short rib and glaze with additional BBQ sauce, if desired. Add large spoonful of slaw to each bowl. Place 1/2 head baby bok choy in each bowl. Drizzle with kimchee mayo and top with black sesame seeds.
