Simple Bibimbap Recipe

by | Mar 3, 2020

Bibimbap is a Korean dish that translates to mixed rice and is typically served with sautéed vegetables, meat (typically beef), sauce, and topped with a fried egg. The sauce is usually composed of gochujang (a red pepper paste), doenjang (a fermented soybean paste), or soy sauce. In this recipe I opted for coconut aminos because that is what I had available but don’t be afraid to experiment with the more traditional Korean sauces.

In the pictures you will see less vegetables than what I recommended in the ingredient list because after making this dish, I realized we had more meat leftover without vegetables to go with it so next time I make this, I will include more vegetables. You can also use whatever vegetable varieties you like. Some ideas include bean sprouts, spinach, cucumber, daikon radish, or kimchi (fermented vegetables).

Traditionally, bibimbap would use short grain white rice but you can use brown rice or other varieties that fit your needs and preference.

Notes

In traditional Bibimbap, the bowl would be warmed and the inside surface of the bowl would be coated with oil before putting rice into the bottom. This is done so the rice gets a little crisp.
