Bibimbap can be as simple or as fancy as it needs to be, but basically it’s rice topped with meat and vegetables and a fried egg. Toss together and eat with a large spoon or a pair of chopsticks.

Ingredients

Marinade and meat:
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons soy sauce
pinch ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons rice wine
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 pound beef flank or sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
2 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided
2 cups medium-grain rice, uncooked
Vegetables and eggs:
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 carrots, peeled and julienned
2 cups spinach leaves, trimmed
1 medium zucchini, peeled and julienned
2 cups bean sprouts, rinsed and sorted
8 fresh shitake mushrooms, julienned
1 tablespoon sesame oil
4 whole eggs
Optional garnish:
2 to 3 green onions, cut at an angle into 1-inch pieces
Red pepper sauce, such as Sriracha, or chile paste

Instructions

  1. To prepare the marinade, combine all ingredients (except vegetable oil and beef) in a large bowl. Place beef in marinade mixture. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 8 hours.
  2. Rinse rice. Cook according to package instructions. Keep warm.
  3. Remove meat from marinade. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add beef and saute 4 to 5 minutes or until done. Keep warm.
  4. To prepare the vegetables, combine sugar, salt and ground black pepper in a large bowl. Add carrots, spinach leaves, zucchini, bean sprouts and mushrooms, and toss to coat.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute vegetable mixture 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Keep warm.
  6. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add eggs and fry sunny-side up.
  7. Divide cooked rice among 4 large deep bowls. Arrange vegetables on top. Add strips of beef and cover with fried egg. Garnish with green onion, if desired. Serve with red pepper sauce.
