Directions

If you’ve never tried any Korean food before then bibimbap (비빔밥) is a great place to start! It’s not one of the quickest of dishes to prepare but the result is well worth the time and effort taken.

Bibimbap is a signature Korean dish and one of the better known dishes outside of Korea. Translated it basically means “mixed rice” but as you’ll see from ingredient list below it contains much more than that 🙂

It’s also highly versatile. If you can’t find, or don’t like, any of the namul vegetables used in my version of this recipe then just substitute them for something else. Beansprouts and spinach are also other popular ingredients often found in other variations. Because the Gochujang (red chilli paste) sauce is added right at the end you can also adjust the amount you add to control the level of spiciness. If you’re a vegetarian, just omit the beef. It works just as well without it.

As with all ingredients within my recipes, if you’re not sure what something is – or where you can find it – just click on its name in the ingredient list on the left to find out more!

Steps

1
Done

Slice the beef into thin strips. I personally prefer to use sirloin steak but any tender cut would be suitable.

Slice the spring onion.

To prepare the marinade for the beef, mix the dark soy sauce, crushed garlic, sesame oil, rice wine, spring onions, salt and pepper in a bowl.

Add the beef strips to the bowl, mix well and leave to marinate for 1 hour.

Add a tsp of the Gochujang sauce to the bowl initially and mix everything well. If you like you can keep adding Gochujang sauce to the bowl, mixing well each time, until you find the right level of spiciness to suit your taste.
