They always had Bibimbap on the menu. It became one of my favorite lunches.
What I like most about Bibimbap? Everyone seems to have a slightly different recipe.
Today, I decided to create my version of Bibimbap.
I stopped by the local Japanese grocery store Nijiya and picked up some thinly sliced beef.
I mixed up a marinade of soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, green onion, rice wine, sugar and finely chopped ginger.
|Marinate the meat for 2 -3 hours.|
I put 1/2 cup of brown rice on to simmer with 1 1/4 cups of water and cooked until tender.
Next, I started chopping up the rest of the ingredients.
|Red leaf lettuce, zucchini, green cabbage and carrot.|
I stir fried the carrot and zucchini in a tiny bit of oil in a hot pan. This only took about 3 minutes as I wanted them as crunchy as possible.
I quickly stir fried the meat in a hot pan. This step is also very quick. Be careful to keep turning the meat and take it off immediately when it finishes cooking.
Then the assembly begins:
A layer of rice -
Then the vegetables are placed around the perimeter. Then pile the meat in the middle.
|A generous drizzle of Sriracha sauce on top.|
But, of course, I can't leave the dish looking so pretty and pristine.
|All mixed up!|
I am going to spend the afternoon apartment hunting online - See y'all later!
