Chef's note: Bibim translates to “mixed” and bap translates to “cooked rice”, so bibimbap means “mixed rice”. Before eating you are supposed to mix all the ingredients together. You can lightly toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan over low heat.
1. Prepare the ingredients
Wash the vegetables. Cut the carrot into matchstick size pieces. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and cut into matchstick size pieces. Thinly slice the radish into thin rounds. Thinly slice the mushrooms.
2. Marinate the beef
In a bowl, mix together the dark soy sauce, half the sesame oil, a pinch pepper and the beef. Set aside to marinate for 15 minutes.
3. Make the sauce
In a bowl, mix the gochujang, the remaining sesame oil, a pinch of sugar and half of the light soy sauce. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
4. Cook the rice
Cook the rice in a rice cooker according to manufacturer instructions or place the rice in a bowl and wash with cold water 3 times. Meanwhile, bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Boil rice for 10 minutes or until cooked through. Stir halfway through to stop the rice from sticking. When cooked strain through a sieve.
5. Cook the mushrooms and spinach
Heat a frying pan with a splash of oil over high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for 3 minutes until soft. Remove mushrooms and set aside. In the same frying pan, reduce to medium heat and add the spinach. Cook, with the lid on, for 30 seconds or until the spinach has wilted. Remove from the pan.
6. Cook the beef
In the same frying pan, heat a splash of oil over high heat. Add some of the marinated beef and cook for 2 minutes, or until meat is cooked through. Set aside and repeat until all the beef has been cooked.
7. Cook the egg
In a clean frying pan, heat a splash of oil. Break in each egg and cook for 3 minutes until the white is set or is cooked to your liking.
8. To serve
Divide the rice between each bowl. Place an egg into the centre, arrange the beef and vegetables around it and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with sauce on the side and add to taste.
