How to Make Your Own Korean Bibimbap

Bibimbap is one of our most popular Korean recipes at HelloFresh and it’s easy to tell why. A flavourful combination of rice, vegetables, protein and spices, it’s both balanced and delicious. Making it at home is easier than you think – all you need are these five components to master the classic Korean dish.

  1. Rice
    “Bibimbap” literally means “mixed rice,” which means this grain is the most important component of this dish. White rice is the most popular choice, but whole grain rice can be used for a more balanced version.
    2. Vegetables
    Fry up some veggies like carrot, mushrooms or spinach. There are no rules, so get creative with your vegetable picks, and don’t forget the soy sauce.
    3. Protein
    Korean Bibimbap is usually served with thinly sliced beef. However, shredded chicken, crispy bacon or even fried tofu are great alternatives.
    4. Fried Egg
    Traditionally, a raw egg is cracked into the bibimbap right before serving, allowing the egg to cook when mixed into the hot rice. A fried egg sunny side up is just as delicious, though.
    5. Toppings
    Get creative with different toppings. Kimchi and sesame seeds are always a good place to start, while sprouts and herbs add a beautiful pop of colour. And of course, the traditional gochujang (Korean chilli paste) gives the whole dish a kick.
