Bibimbap Bowl

We can’t help but bim n’ bap with excitement whenever this dish is on the menu! When it comes to bowls, we’re never gonna be satisfied with just a couple tasty things, we want ALL the tasty things, an excess of tasty things. And bibimbap, the beloved classic Korean dish (literally, “mixed rice with meat and assorted vegetables”) delivers just that. 

A combination of crispy rice, soy & sesame-marinated beef, sesame spinach, crunchy carrots and bean sprouts, savory roasted shiitakes, cool seaweed salad, tangy kimchi, and fiery gochujang sauce–*oof, give us a sec to catch our breath*–it turns the volume all the way up on both flavor and texture. The dish is commonly served with a runny egg on top, which adds lusciousness to the experience, so if you want a little extra credit, we’ve included instructions for that option too.   

Total prep time: 5-7 minutes

What’s in your bag:

  • You tasty bowl!
  • Seaweed salad, kimchi, gochujang sauce

What you’ll need from home:

  • One large egg & a nonstick pan (optional, for sunny-side-up egg add-on!)
  • Saute pan (for stovetop option)
  • Utensils and an appetite!

Optional Extra Credit: Sunny-side-up Egg

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil or butter in a nonstick pan over medium heat.
  2. Crack in your egg, season it with a little S&P, and cover the pan with a lid. Cook 2-3 minutes until the white is set but the yolk is still runny.

The Bibimbap

Option #1 (in the microwave)

  1. Remove the ramekins of seaweed salad, kimchi, and gochujang sauce, and set aside.
  2. Place a damp paper towel over your uncovered bowl and microwave for 2-3 minutes, until hot and steamy.

Option #2 (on the stove, for some crispy rice crunch!):

  1. Remove the ramekins of seaweed salad, kimchi, and gochujang sauce, and set aside. 
  2. Heat your saute pan over medium heat for a minute or so to get it nice and hot.
  3. Add a tablespoon of oil to the pan, then add the contents of your bowl. Minus those ramekins, of course! 
  4. Heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring & tossing frequently, until everything is nice and hot, and the rice is just a little crisped. 

Time to serve! Scoop your warm rice into a bowl, and nestle in a little pile of seaweed salad and kimchi on top. Lay your sunny-up egg on top (if you made it!), and drizzle that gochujang sauce all over — but start light, it’s got a kick!

That’s it! #Dinnersolved, dinner served.
