Korean bibimbap or literally, “mixed rice”. It is served hot, with white rice, ground beef, vegetables, and fried (or raw) egg on top. Bibimbap is one of the most delicious food, according to CNN Travel.
Take the base and make your own Korean bibimbap
I served this for the very first time about a year ago. Since I had no knowledge at all, I cooked classic version of it with bean sprouts, cucumber, zucchini, carrots, white rice, ground beef and soy sauce. Nowadays, I usually use brown rice and any other kinds of vegetables. Of course I experiment with sauces too.
This meal is especially interesting for kids. All those colors, and all those different tastes in one bowl! My son just can’t help but try every single thing even before serving. He is my no1 assistant in the kitchen when I am making something interesting (with lots of pans and other).
Korean bibimbap (one of our ways of it)
- 500 g brown rice
- 300 g groung beef
- 4 eggs
- 5 broccoli florets
- 5 cauliflower florets
- 200 mushrooms
- 2 onions
- 4 tsp mango curry sauce
- coconut oil
- olive oil
- lemon juice
Cook rice (brown rice is usually ready in 20 minutes).
Preheat oven to 190C.
Mix broccoli and cauliflower florets with some olive oil, salt, and lemon juice. Then put on a baking sheet and into the oven.
Fry onions and mushrooms on olive oil, and then add ground beef and fry until browned. Then add mango curry sauce and fry for some more time.
Take another pan and fry eggs on coconut oil.
Serve immediately in layers over rice.
Make any kind of sauce to top everything (optional).
Our choice today was tomato/potato sauce. We simply cooked potatoes, and fried tomatoes on olive oil along with onion (we used oregano, salt and pepper as flavors). In the end we blend it and got this delicious sauce.
As I already said, my son is a big fan of any version of colorful meals. Would you believe me if I say he loves me for the food? And because I’m always there to hear him out and to pretend that we are talking. Well ok, of course he loves me because I am his mom. But today, he was a real man- he loved me for the food. Today was the day when he did not let me get out of the room because I obviously bought him with my food! But look at this cute “yummm” face…
From snacking everything during preparation and cooking, all the way to ready-made lunch. He was the sweetiest friend in the kitchen I could ever have.
