  • 1/2 large-sized carrot, julienned
  • 1 sweet bell pepper, julienned
  • 350 grams of spinach (1 large bunch), cleaned well
  • 1 large-sized zucchini, julienned
  • 10 white button mushrooms (or shiitake mushroom), sliced 
  • 4 portions of cooked rice (brown rice was used here)
  • 4 fried eggs (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
  • Salt
  • Cooking oil

Bibimbap Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons of gochujang (Korean red chilli paste)
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar/honey
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon of roasted sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of vinegar (I used apple vinegar)


  1. Combine all the ingredients for the minced beef in a bowl. Marinate for 20 minutes while preparing the other ingredients.
  2. Add some cooking oil into a wok and cook the meat on medium-high to high heat. It takes about 3 to 5 mins to thoroughly cook it. Dish out and keep warm.
  3. Mix the Bibimbap sauce in a bowl and set aside.
  4. Heat up a skillet to medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of oil and the sliced zucchini. Season with salt and saute for 2 minutes. Do not overcook, just dish out to a plate when it is softened.
  5. Add 1 teaspoon of oil to the same skillet with sliced mushrooms and a pinch of salt, saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Dish out.
  6. Add 1 teaspoon oil and bell peppers to the skillet with a pinch of salt.
  7. Saute for 1 minute and dish out. Add 1 teaspoon of oil, carrots and salt to the pan. Saute for 2 minutes and dish out.
  8. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add a generous amount of salt to the water. Add spinach and cook for 10 seconds. Remove the cooked spinach to a big bowl of cold water to stop it from further cooking. Squeeze out water from spinach gently. Add 1 TBSP of sesame oil and sesame seeds and mix well. Set aside.
  9. Time to assemble the dish. Scoop a portion of rice to a dish or bowl. Arranged 1/4 portions of all veggies & beef around the rice. Put the fried egg on top of rice. Apply the desired amount of sauce and mix all the veggies, meat and rice together. Enjoy!
