Korean bibimbap (a word or two about + how we serve it)

October 8, 2017

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.

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).

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…

  1. We make something very similar but I didn’t know the name! And I’ve never thought to put an egg on top. Sounds perfect. Thanks.

  2. I love that there’s always a new recipe to find and love. I’ve never heard of bibimbap before, but I’m intrigued. Sounds like the perfect thing for families with picky eaters (like mine), since you’ve got options.

  3. It makes me so happy when my children eat what I cook for them! This young guy seems to be very happy with what he’s eating! Well done
