Korean Beef Bibimbap Bowls


Bibimbap is a popular meal that takes its place among one of the most favoured food in Korean cuisine. Personally, it’s my favourite too and one of the easiest and least complicated recipes when we have a lot of people to serve. Bibimbap literally meaning mixed rice is a delicious combination of rice, sauteed and seasoned vegetables marinated beef, egg and an awesome-tasting spicy sauce.
