Bibimbap (Korean Mixed Rice)

Bibimbap (비빔밥) or Korean mixed rice with assorted toppings, is one of the most well-loved and possibly most famous Korean dish. Ordering this at Korean restaurants easily set us back by $20 per person, so I was determined to learn to make it. The home-made bibimbap turns out to be quite easy and gratifying.

The results tasted good and cost a fraction of the price we paid outside. Though it may be tedious to prepare and cook each topping one by one, I had a sense of satisfaction seeing how beautiful it turned out. It is also a balanced meal with various types of vegetables and meat in a bowl.

Place the egg in the center. Place the sauce on the egg white. Then arrange the rest of the cooked toppings as a neat platter around the egg. As a final garnishing, top with some pine nuts on the egg yolk (Pine nuts garnishing learnt from Running Man Ep 180).

  1. Looks so colourful and appetizing!

  2. Full of flavour in every scoop of rice! The hot stone bowl keeps everything warm throughout the meal.

  3. Hi Wiffy,
    Where to buy the stone bowl? Can also replace with other type of normal bowl?

    • I bought it from Korean supermarket at Bedok Mall basement. But you can use any suitable size bowl (even a claypot), no need a special hot stone pot.

  4. Love your step-by-step guide! Bibimbap’s one of my fave Korean dishes (besides chicken ginseng soup, that is). :)

  5. Nice step by step guide on how to make this. Thank for this! :D

  7. This is always my go-to recipe whenever I want to make bibimbap.. I replaced minced meat with Korean frozen sliced meat (beef/ lamb/ pork) – those used for Korean BBQ – the taste is much improved!

    Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
