Bim Bim Bap 101

Alright, alright – the learning continues. This one was definitely a group effort because we were starved & ready for a food coma. Also, I make no promises that these directions are 100%, but they’re sorta close. I’m going to do that maddening thing in recipes where they say add this “to taste” and not use measurements.

.ingredients.

  • 3 – 7 Carrots
  • 3 Zucchinis
  • 1-2 Daikon Radish
  • 1 bag of Bean Sprouts
  • 1/2lb Ground Beef
  • 1 Egg (per serving, or more if you like)
  • 1/2C Rice (per serving)
  • Gochujang
  • Minced Garlic
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Soy Sauce
  • Sesame Oil
  • Veg Oil or EVOO
  • White Vinegar
  • Seaweed (for topping)

.process.

  1. Rinse rice a few time in cold water – usually until the run-off is mostly clear to remove excess starches + bad karma. Set to cook in rice cooker.
  2. Peel and julienne carrots. Mix carrots with about a teaspoon of salt – this helps remove excess water and bring out flavor. Set aside. Repeat with zucchinis.
  3. Use a mandolin to slice daikon radishes. Mix with salt, sugar, and white vinegar to taste. Set aside.
  4. Rinse bean sprouts + bring a pot of water to boil. Once water is boiling, add bean sprouts  + blanche ’em (about 5-10 mins). Transfer bean sprouts to a mixing bowl and add soy sauce, sesame seed oil, and minced garlic to taste. Set aside.
  5. Time to cook the carrots! Warm a skillet with veg oil/EVOO and add carrots. Add a sprinkle of sugar and cook until tender. Set aside.
  6. Use same skillet, add oil, and cook zucchini. Add a little sugar and sesame oil. Set aside
  7. Use same skillet, fry up an egg. It can be sunny side up or over easy – your preference.
  8. Use same skillet and cook ground beef. Add soy sauce and sugar.
  9. Hurray – you’ve got all your fixings prepared, it’s time to feast! If you’re feeling fancy you can use a smaller bowl as a rice-mold. Make neat, separate pile of each veggie and meat around your rice mound. Add a spoonful of gochujang and top with an egg. Take a photo because  now you’re going mix it all together to eat!
