In Korea, “bibim” means “mixed” and “bap” means rice. All of the ingredients except the meat (which is optional )are prepared in advance so you can add them at room temperature to the top of hot steamed rice. You then quickly fry and add the meat and a sunny-side up egg to the top. Bibimbap is usually served with a spicy sauce made from gochujang (Korean hot pepper paste) which you can add to your liking – allowing you to control how hot it is. You then use your spoon (Korean food is always served with metal chopsticks and a spoon) to “bibim” it all until it is compoletely mixed together. Once you tried, it really is impossible not to fall in love at first bite.
