Bibimbap is one of the most popular Korean dishes out there. It’s a tasty, healthy combination of rice and vegetables topped with an egg. This version comes together quickly and uses ingredients you’re likely to have on hand. To make your own bibimbap, you’ll need sesame oil, garlic and onion cloves, carrots, broccoli, spinach leaves, eggs and cooked white rice. Plus gochujang (optional) and soy sauce for seasoning. You’ll also need a cooking skillet or wok to get everything just right. Once all of your ingredients are ready to go, it only takes 20 minutes or so to put together this delicious meal that serves four people!
Start by prepping the vegetables. Heat 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and sauté for 1-2 minutes until they start to become fragrant. Then, add the carrots, broccoli, and spinach leaves. Sauté for 3-4 minutes more until all of the vegetables are cooked through but still have some bite to them. Finally, season with a pinch of salt and pepper, then remove from heat and set aside.
To continue preparing your bibimbap, begin to prepare the non-vegetarian components. Beat 2 eggs with 1 teaspoon of oil and a pinch of salt until the mixture is light and airy. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and add the egg mixture. Let cook, stirring occasionally, for around 2 minutes until lightly scrambled. Transfer to a plate and set aside for later. Lastly, heat another teaspoon of sesame oil in the same pan over medium heat before adding 1 cup of cooked short-grain rice. Sauté for 3-4 minutes more until everything is thoroughly warmed through and nicely browned. Now you have all the ingredients ready to assemble your bibimbap!
Heat another tablespoon of sesame oil in the same skillet or wok. Add the beef, pork, chicken, or shrimp and cook for 3-4 minutes until it’s lightly browned on both sides. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, then remove from heat and set aside. If using tofu, add directly to the vegetables once they are finished cooking and stir fry together until golden brown.
For additional flavor, add a tablespoon of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, or teriyaki sauce. If you’re looking to take your Bibimbap to the next level, try adding a splash of fish sauce for an extra layer of umami flavor. For an even richer flavor, add a few green onions and garlic to the beef before cooking. Finally, set aside the cooked beef or other proteins until you’re ready to assemble the dish.
To finish the presentation, garnish bibimbap with sesame seeds, julienned carrots and zucchini. Drizzle some toasted sesame oil on top before serving it. For extra crunch, you can add crushed roasted seaweed (or kim), along with thinly sliced scallions for an extra flavor. Now you have a perfect bibimbap! Enjoy your homemade dish!
Bibimbap is a classic Korean dish, typically composed of a bowl of warm white rice and assorted veggies such as bean sprouts, zucchini and mushrooms. The vegetables can either be stir-fried or served separately on top of the warm bowl of rice. To bring everything together, lightly drizzle Asian gochujang sauce, which gives bibimbap its signature flavor. When ready to serve, place the ingredients in the centre of the bowl with the julienned carrots and zucchini arranged nicely around it. Finally, for some added flavor and crunch, sprinkle some crushed roasted seaweed (or kim) along with scallions to finish off the presentation.
