Who doesn't like Bibimbap?....

Just last week I made some homemade Bibimbap and I realized I never posted the recipe here, this is pretty simple to make and you can basically just use left-over veggies, rice, an egg and Gochujang.

Bibimbap is a combination of Red pepper paste (Gochujang), Steamed rice and vegetables, this creates a very pleasant harmony, I was lucky enough to eat Jeonju's Bibimbap at  the Gajokhwoigwan Restaurant, Jeonju is famous for its Bibimbap and it's the only place where I've tried it with a raw egg yolk... anyway, here's the Recipe!

Ingredients (4 Portions):

800 grs. Steamed Rice
200grs.  Bean Srputs
100grs.  Spinach
3            Shiitake mushrooms
1/3         Carrot
3  tbsp   Sesame Oil
2  tbsp   Minced garlic
2  tbsp  Vegetable Oil
3  tbsp  Gochujang (Red pepper paste)
4          Eggs

Wash the rice 3 times to remove the starch and place it in a thick pot with 3 cups of water, boil over high heat for 15 minutes and then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 more minutes, put a lid on the pot and don't open it until the rice is fully cooked!!

Parboil the bean sprouts and season with same oil, salt and minced garlic.

Boil the spinach, then rinse in cold water to avoid overcooking it, squeeze out the water and season with sesame oil and salt.

Grease the pan with sesame oil and parch the mushrooms.

Cut the carrot into a small, thin strips and pan-fry them.

Fry the eggs making sure the yolk doesn't break!!!

Finally, place the rice in a BIG bowl, add the veggies, add the Gochujang and place the egg on top of the rice and veggies.

As you can see it's pretty easy to make, if you don't have those veggies don't worry, go ahead and use whatever you have on your fridge, this is a perfect food for those days you feel like there's "nothing" to eat at home ;)

Have you ever had Bibimbap? How was it?
