Korean Bibimbap

Korean Bibimbap

My father is often be found at Korean restaurants with colleagues from work. There he has one favourite recipe, namely Bibimbap.  

We had already made Korean bibimbap using a recipe from the internet, but my father wasn’t convinced. The recipe didn’t taste the same as the original Bibimbap he got in the Korean restaurants. There was only 1 thing to do… He asked his Korean colleague for the recipe. The result? A healthy spicy bowl that not only looks colourful, but also tastes delicious. Now we eat this recipe almost every week, well then you know how good it tastes. 

The bowls you see in the picture are special bibimbap bowls that you can heat on the stove. But don’t worry this is not necessarily needed and you can also just use a nice bowl that you have in your kitchen cupboard. 

Are you gonna make it? We’re curious. Let us know what you think of the recipe.

Ingredients for 1 person:

  • 80 grams of sushi rice
  • 100 grams of zucchini spaghetti 
  • 75 grams of raw carrot julienne (grated carrot)
  • 50 grams of shiitakes 
  • 100 grams of beef mince
  • 100 grams of salad (we used oak leaf)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp of hot pepper paste (you can order the ‘real’ Korean sauce here)
  • 1 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tsp of sesame oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • Black pepper 
  • 1 tsp of honey 


Cook the rice according to the package. In the meantime, fry the zucchini spaghetti with a little bit of salt. Fry also the grated carrot with a little bit of salt and olive oil. Cut the shiitakes in little slices and fry with a little bit of salt only. Mix the beef with the soy sauce, black pepper and fry without olive oil. Mix in another bowl the hot pepper paste with the honey and the sesame oil. Fry an egg. 

Put all the ingredients in the following order in a bowl: sushi rice, beef, zucchini, grated carrot, shiitakes, hot pepper mix, salad and last the fried egg.  

Optional: you can also use chicken instead of beef mince.
