Bibimbap [Rice, vegetables and pork]

Hello everyone!!! I’m back on KFoodAddict :D

Last year was the busiest and happiest time in my life. I finally finished my university and… got married! My husband and I settled in Bucheon which is near Seoul. The best thing about our new house is the decent sized kitchen, so I’m very excited to make more Korean food :)

Bibimbap literally means ‘mixed rice’ as the ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating. One of my foreign friends didn’t wanna ruin the nice look of it, so he ate each ingredient separately haha. But for the real taste of bibimbap, stir it up!

  • 100g  Beef or Pork
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • Pinch of Pepper
  • Pinch of Sesame seeds

For chili paste

  • 3 Tbsp Korean Chili paste ( Gochujang)

3. Make marinate sauce (2 Tbsp soy sauce + 1 Tbsp sugar + sesame seeds + pepper).

4. Marinate the meat strips and mushrooms in the sauce, in two separate bowls.



5. Oil the pan. Make fried egg white & yolk strips on low heat. (once they cool, cut them into thin strips)



6. Re-oil the pan. Fry the remaining ingredients on high heat. Start with the brightest vegetables, so the darker vegetables and meats don’t taint the color. The zucchini and mushrooms only need a short time in the pan.

7. Re-oil the pan. Fry the chopped meat until it’s half cooked. Stir it with chopsticks, so the meat doesn’t stick together.

8. Add 3 Tbsp of chili paste and 7 Tbsp of water. Keep stirring until it becomes thicker.

cutting zu

  • Try not to place two bright or dark ingredients next to each other in the bowl. Interchange light and dark for added aesthetic.
  • You can garnish with sesame seeds or dried fruits. (I garnished with dried jujube in the photo )
  • You can add 1 more tsp sesame oil if it’s too dry to mix all ingredients together.
  • Slice the zucchini’s skin only because the inside of it is too soft to use. (Picture below)

Quick Korean Words

  • Bibim [비빔] = Mixed
  • Bap [밥] = Steamed rice
