Bibimbap Recipes

Bibimbap recipes can be altered to suit your individual preferences.  And there are so many variations that you can experiment with or create when making a Bibimbap recipe.

You can make a more cooked version of Bibimbap if that suits your taste buds.  Or if you're into eating raw foods, make a Bibimbap recipe that includes raw meat, raw vegetables, and a raw egg yolk.

You can even make a lower carb Bibimbap with Shirataki rice if that is what makes you happy.

What is Gochujang?

Gochujang is a fermented Korean red chili paste that has a savory, sweet, and spicy flavor.

The main ingredients that you will almost always find in a good Gochujang are Korean hot peppers, fermented soybean paste, glutinous rice, and salt.  And there are sometimes a couple more additional ingredients depending on the brand.

However, most of Gochujang's distinctive flavor comes from the hot peppers and fermented soybean paste.  And a really good jar of Gochujang isn't that easy to find, so you may have to create an alternative for your Bibimbap recipes.

Easy Alternative Gochujang Recipe

Organic Ingredients:

  • About 1 1/2 Cups of Filtered Water
  • 1 Cup of Brown Sugar, Honey, or Coconut Sugar
  • 300 Grams of Organic White Miso Paste
  • Up to 1 1/3 Cup Korean Red Chili Powder
  • About 1 tsp. Sea Salt or To Taste
  • 1/2 Tbsp. Rice Vinegar

Instructions:

  1. Heat up the water and sugar on medium heat in a small pan until sugar is melted.
  2. Turn off the heat and add the miso paste.  Stir until the miso paste is completely dissolved.
  3. Turn the heat back on to very low and gradually whisk in the Korean red chili powder (about 1/2 cup at a time) until the desired heat level is reached.
  4. After everything is well combined and the mixture starts to bubble, turn off the heat.
  5. Add a little more water if needed, then stir in the salt and rice vinegar.  Adjust the taste of sauce if needed.
  6. Let cool completely for a few hours and then transfer to a glass jar to store in your refrigerator.

Making an alternative version of Gochujang may be a better option - if you can't find a good quality jar of Gochujang in your grocery store to season your Bibimbap recipes.
