Beef Bibimbap

Bibimbap with ingredients
Bibimbap is one of my absolute favourites! Highly underrated. In 2017 when I worked at Uber Eats, I was seriously considering opening my own bibimbap joint, called Bibs. But it didn't happen, so here's the recipe. This is insanely delicious; all the ingredients can be bought at both major supermarkets; it's healthy and makes for great leftovers (if there are any). Enjoy bbs!


Bulgogi beef marinade:

  • 400g beef eye fillet steak, thinly sliced
  • ⅓ green apple, grated
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil (Ayam Pure Black Sesame Oil)

Gochujang sauce:

  • 3 tbsp gochujang paste (available at Coles)
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tsp white rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

For the rest:

  • 2 cups short-grain or brown rice, rinsed
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 100g bean sprouts, washed
  • 2 carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 zucchini, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 bunch broccolini, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cobs corn, kernels removed
  • 4 eggs
  • 50g crushed peanuts, to serve
  • Kimchi, to serve


  1. Combine bulgogi ingredients, stirring until sugar dissolves, then add beef and marinate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight.
  2. Combine all ingredients for the gochujang sauce in a bowl, stirring until sugar dissolves, and set aside.
  3. Prep your vegetables.
  4. Put your rice on in a pot or rice cooker, so it’s ready to serve with everything else.
  5. Steam or boil broccolini, strain and season with salt.
  6. In a large pan, add 1 tbsp of vegetable oil on medium heat and lightly sauté the vegetables in batches, seasoning each with salt as you go.
  7. For the beef, heat another 1 tbsp oil in the frying pan over high heat. Add the beef and cook for 1–2 minutes until caramelised and cooked through.
  8. Lastly, heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil and fry eggs. When they are nearly done, you can add a lid to help steam the top side.
  9. To serve, spoon rice into bowls, top with vegetables, kimchi, beef and fried eggs. Top with goghujang sauce and toasted sesame seeds.
