Bibimbap is a staple dish in Korea. The term “bibim,” refers to mixing multiple ingredients and “bap” means rice. Our easy take on this classic Korean rice bowl is perfect for a quick dinner, any night of the week.
Traditionally served in a sizzling stone bowl, coated with a bit of sesame oil, the rice is applied directly to the stone, giving it a crunchy layer. For our recipe, instead of a hot stone bowl, we use jasmine rice and fry it up in a mixture of soy sauce and rice wine vinegar.
This bibimbap gets topped with sautéed spinach, garlic, ginger, salt and pepper, as well as bean sprouts and a sunny-side up egg. Then, you can finish it off with your choice of kimchi, carrots, sesame seeds or all three!
For this recipe, a good dose of Sriracha is ideal. However, this classic Korean dish can also pair with a drizzle of either gochujang sauce or doenjang. What’s the difference? Gochujang is a sweet and spicy fermented chili sauce (think of it as the Sriracha of Korean condiments), while doenjang is a fermented soybean paste. Both pack a lot of flavor, though doenjang is on the milder side.
Just like the name states, this dish is a mixture of various ingredients. Add anything from sautéed mushrooms and tofu to seared beef or pickled cucumbers.
