Bibimbap -Korean Rice Bowl

Bibimbap – The term 'Bibim' means mixing the rice. Bap means rice. The Koreans are creative and smart to transform the humble rice bowl into a recipe that’s revered all around the world! With a kaleidoscope of seasoned sautéed vegetables, Korean marinated beef, and the signature fried egg, the thing that really seals the deal is the bright red, spicy Bibimbap Sauce .

Bibimbap Sauce is a sauce used in bibimbap before you mix everything. While each bibimbap ingredient plays a part in giving bibimbap flavor, I think the most important flavor note comes from the sauce. Commonly bibimbap sauce is made with spicy gochujang (Korean chili paste). it all up into one big delicious mess. 

For me, I don't have a standard Bibimbap recipe where the veggies are concerned. I used whatever greens I have. But the most important ingredient that is a must have is the eggs , kimchi and the sauce. Today's version is the jammy egg where the egg yolk is soft, creamy and jammy in texture. There are many methods on how to make a perfect jammy egg on the internet and I have tried a few. I am still trying to get the perfect texture that I like for my Bibimbap and noodles. I have a photo right at the bottom of the page screenshot from Instagramer @cooksillustrated on how to make a perfect Jammy Egg.

after mixing in the sauce, this humble bowl of rice and sautéed veggies is transformed into a bowl of delicious. Bursting with flavours..the kind of rice that I can eat every day.
