Beef Bibimbap

Beef Bibimbap

Bibimbap is a popular Korean dish whose name arose from the Korean word for “mixed rice.” This delicious meal traditionally consists of white rice topped with sautéed vegetables, marinated meat, hot chili, sesame oil, and other condiments. These ingredients are then all mixed thoroughly along with gochujang, a sweet-spicy soybean-based chili paste. Sometimes bibimbap comes in a sizzling hot stone bowl called a dolsot.
