Recipe of the day - Bibim Bap

Bibim Bap is a Korean rice bowl dish with beef and vegetables. You can find many recipes like this online.
But here is my favorite version of this dish, which is easier to make then the one posted above.

Cooking Time: 20 minutes
  • Rice (white or brown, brown is healthier though)
  • 4 vegetables of your choice: spinach, broccoli, mushrooms, cucumber (in the picture, they used carrots, mushrooms, onions, and cabbage)
  • meat of your choice: beef, chicken, shrimps, or tofu.
  • 1 egg
  • some oil
  • salt and pepper
  • gochujang (a Korean cooking paste, you can replace this with anything else you like.)
  • Boil the rice depending on the instructions on the bag
  • Cut the meat in little pieces and fry it to your preference. Use little oil only to watch calories.
  • Brown the mushrooms and boil the broccoli, spice with salt and pepper
  • The spinach can be browned with some oil or you can add it to the finished dish raw.
  • Make the egg to your preference, I love sunny side up in the Bibim Bap.
  • Put the rice in a bowl and add the beef to it, cut the cucumbers in slices and add them on the rice, add some broccoli and the spinach on top, and find a nice place for your egg.
  • Then you can either add some gochujang paste or any other Korean dressing that you might find in your grocery stores ethnic section. Be careful though, gochujang is spicy.
Enjoy !
