Bibimbap

This has been my favorite dish from Hello Fresh thus fair. Its very easy to make and the flavors are nice and light! I also got to practice using my chopsticks eating something I made at home. Bibimbap is a classic Korean dish with a medley of sautéed veggies served with steak over nutty brown rice. I like to add a fried egg on top and sriracha to spice it up! For a vegetarian version just leave out the meat or substitute with another veggie like red peppers 🙂

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 3/4 lb of Hanger Steak
  • 6 tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 4 tablespoons White Vinegar
  • Scallions
  • 2 cloves of Garlic
  • Small piece of Ginger
  • 1 cup of Brown Rice
  • 1 Medium Zucchini
  • 2 Large Carrots
  • 1 cup of Button Mushrooms
  • Sprinkle of Sesame Seeds
  • Optional: Sriracha

1) Bring a pot of water to boil with a large pinch of salt. Once boiling, add the rice and cook for 20-25 minutes. Once the rice is tender, drain any excess water if needed and return to the pot. Cover and allow to steam.

2) Meanwhile peel the carrot and with medium pressure slice it into ribbons with the peeler. Repeat with the zucchini. Cut the scallions half lengthwise and then thinly slice lengthwise. Slice the mushrooms and mince the garlic and ginger.

3) Combine soy sauce, sugar, garlic and ginger in a bowl. Thinly slice the steak against the grain and marinate for 10 minutes in the fridge. In another bowl, quickly pickle the scallions by marinating them with the vinegar and a pinch of salt. Set aside in the fridge.

4) Heat 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add carrots and season with salt and pepper. Toss and cook for 4-5 minutes until crisp-tender then set aside. Add another 1/2 tablespoon of oil and mushrooms to the pan. Toss and cook for 4 minutes until golden brown then season with salt and pepper and set aside.

5) Heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil in a pan on medium-high heat. Place marinated steak in pan to sear, about 20 seconds per side. Repeat until cooked to desired liking. If you’d like, you can also make 2 fried eggs now.

6) Pour remaining steak marinade into pan on low heat to thicken. Plate your dish with rice in the center, topped with egg if you wish and surround the plate with vegetables and steak. Place scallions on top, sprinkle sesame seeds, and drizzle marinade. Add sriracha if you like it hot!
