Yakshik Sweet Spiced Rice

For our Korean Wine & Dine event, my friend Gabby prepared this dish. This is a sweet rice dessert that involves using sesame oil and soy sauce - ingredients I didn't expect in this dessert. What I like about this dish is how comforting it is... and it's a sweet and spicy Korean twist to traditional rice pudding.
