Bibimbap Made Easy
Bibimbap is a Korean dish, literally translated as mixed rice. This is a rice bowl topped with different kinds of sautéed and seasoned vegetables. A fried sunny side egg is usually added, others would include some thinly sliced beef. This is all mixed together with some gochujang (chili pepper paste) before eating.
We usually order this or another variation, which is the Dolsot Bibimbap at our favorite Korean Restaurant. H-mart which is a Korean grocery store carries ready made Bibimbap vegetables. This is really convenient for those who does not have the luxury of time to prepare a lot of small dishes. This ready made vegetables include: daikon, spinach, royal fern, carrots, shiitake mushrooms, cucumbers and soybean sprout. It also came with a small cup of chili pepper paste.
To make, just scoop out some hot cooked rice on a large bowl. Then arrange the season/sauteed vegetables over it and top with a sunny side egg. Drizzle with some gochujang and stir everything together. I was surprised at the amount of vegetables this ready made Bibimbap kit has, it easily fed our family of four. But of course I did served another dish to go with it.
