From the Test Kitchen

Bibimbap is a Korean classic whose name translates to “mixed rice”—a reference to the technique of stirring the dish’s ingredients together table side. Our seasonal version features hearty sweet potato and crisp, refreshing red choi (a bok choy relative with deep purple leaves) sautéed with gochujang, a traditional hot chile paste. For welcome crunch and pops of gorgeous color, we’re topping the bowls with marinated slices of sweet persimmon and watermelon radish.

2 Marinate the persimmon & radish:

In a bowl, combine the persimmon, radish, vinegar, sugar and half the ginger; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Reserving the marinating liquid, transfer the marinated persimmon and radish to a separate bowl.

While the persimmon and radish marinate, in a small pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the rice, a big pinch of salt and 1½ cups of water; heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from heat and fluff the cooked rice with a fork.
