Bibimbap Recipe

October 20, 2019

Traditionally, Bibimbap is a mixed rice dish with assorted vegetables and meat, but you can create your own version of Bibimbap using ingredients that suit your preferences and dietary restrictions.  


Meat and meat sauce

  • 4 ounces thinly shaved rib-eye steak (sometimes I use chopped up left-over steaks)
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic

Vegetables and other

  • 10 ounces spinach
  • 13 ounces bean sprouts 
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushroom (or your favorite mushrooms)
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt 
  • 3 to 4 serving portions of steamed rice
  • 4 eggs 
  • cooking oil (canola or avocado oil)
  • 2 tsp minced scallion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp roasted sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil

Bibimbap sauce


  1. Prepare the ingredients below.
  • Mix the shaved beef with the meat sauce ingredients. Marinate the meat for about 30 mins while you are working on other ingredients. Add cooking oil into a frying pan and cook the meat on medium-high to high heat.  Set it aside.
  • Boil water and add a tsp of salt. Blanch the cleaned Spinach in boiling water for 30 seconds, drain, and cool in running cold water for 1-2 minutes. Squeeze the water out of spinach, then mix with 1 Tbsp of sesame oil, 1 tsp of minced scallions, ½ tsp of minced garlic, ¼ tsp of salt, and 1 tsp of roasted sesame seeds. Repeat this step for bean sprout.  Set them aside.
  • Clean, peel, and julienne the carrots. Add cooking oil and 1/4 tsp of salt to a frying pan and saute the carrots on medium-high to high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Set it aside.
  • Clean and thinly slice the mushrooms (if using small mushrooms like clamshell mushrooms, you don’t need to slice them.  Just cut the bottom to separate the mushrooms from one another.) Add oil and ¼ tsp of salt to a frying pan and saute the mushrooms on medium-high to high heat for about 3 minutes. Set it aside.
  • Mix the Bibimbap sauce ingredients in a bowl. Set it aside.
  • Make fried eggs, sunny side up, on low heat.
  1. Put the rice into a bowl and arrange the meat and assorted vegetables on top of the rice forming a colorful wheel.  Add the egg in the middle of the wheel. Serve with Bibimbap sauce and extra sesame oil on the side.
  2. Mix the ingredients well with the sauce and enjoy your very own Bibimbap!
