Fakeaway: Simple Korean Bibimbap

Almost at the end of the series with our penultimate post, we’ll be launching a brand new series soon all about speed and simplicity. We’re well aware that many of the Fakeaway dishes are time consuming to make, which is fine for times like these, but we all know we’d much rather get the real deal when lockdown is over, saving us time and effort.

However, this dish is perhaps the quickest and simple of all. From pan to plate in less than 30 minutes, we recreated a simple Bibimbap recipe using just a handful of ingredients and giving us the perfect WFH lunch.

Bibimbap with rice, spinach, carrots, beef, ginger and fried egg

Head to Bibimbap in Central London and you’re dish is bound to have a plethora of flavours, spices and toppings which will give your mouth the ultimate Korean cuisine party. But we’re here to show you that you can create something almost as good from the comfort of your own home.

With our beef steak and rice, we opted for spinach, carrots, ginger and a fried egg. Thrown in together with plenty of soy sauce and herbs of your choice, it’s a quick, easy and healthy lunch that we’re sure to return to time and time again. The truth is though, you could probably handpick your toppings and it still be equally as good.

Korean Bibimbap

Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Course: Dinner, Lunch
Cuisine: Korean
Keyword: Bibimbap
Servings: 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 100 g beef steak thin slices
  • 2 tsp light soy sauce
  • 2 cups boiled rice
  • 2 tsp sunflower oil
  • 1 carrot cut into matchsticks
  • 50 g spinach
  • 2 eggs fried
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp ginger cut into matchsticks

Sauce

  • 4 tsp sriracha
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp cider vinegar
  • 4 tsp light soy sauce

Instructions

  • Put the steak into a bowl and add the soy sauce.
  • Boil the rice following packet instructions. Meanwhile heat 1 tsp oil in a frying pan or wok then add the steak, leaving the soy sauce behind in the bowl. Fry quickly at a high temperature until well browned on the outside, put it onto a board and cover with foil to rest.
  • Fry the carrots in the same pan, stir frying for 2-3 mins until starting to soften then transfer to a plate. Next add the spinach and fry until just wilted (about a minute).
  • Finally fry the eggs, adding a little extra oil if the pan is dry.
  • When the rice is cooked, drain and pile into 2 bowls. Slice the steak then put it on top of the rice. Next to that add a clump of the cooked carrots, then the spinach and finally the ginger. Scatter the sesame seeds over the top.
  • Stir all of the sauce ingredients together in a bowl and serve alongside the rice. Enjoy!

    I’ve never tried bibimbap but I always wanted to. There is no Korean restaurant near me so it’s quite hard for me to buy it. Thank you for sharing this recipe as I think I’ll just need to make it myself!

    I love how easy a dish like this is to change to suit your own personal tastes. My husband and I have VASTLY different preferences when it comes to food. I’m a vegetarian while he loves nothing more than a steak on the grill. Therefore, we’re always on the lookout for meals that we can easily make work for both of us.

    I’ve never tried this dish before but it looks delicious, so fresh and healthy – I’d probably leave out the egg as my fussy daughter isn’t keen but everything else would be a hit! Lisa x
