First attempt at a Bibimbap

It won’t be the last either as this was a really easy and tasty dish to make!

I took the recipe from a book my partner received for Xmas: “Comfort”, by John Whaite. This particular dish is fun as well since it’s served in the pan the rice is cooked in, with the other ingredients added on top, so great for sharing between 2-3 people!


Here’s the recipe as listed in the book:

  • 1 Sirloin Steak with the fat trimmed
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 150g Shiitake Mushrooms (didn’t have any so I used chestnut mushrooms instead)
  • 150g Sugar Snap Peas
  • 150g Beansprouts
  • 500g Ready Cooked basmati Rice (The reason my portion looks huge is that I stupidly measured the rice prior to cooking).
  • 1 or 2 Eggs

For the Sauce:

  • 1 tbsp Gochujang (Korean) Chilli Paste (Again, didn’t have this so used chilli flakes instead)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp runny honey
  • 1 Garlic Clove, finely chopped
  • 30g Ginger, chopped, or I used about 1 tsp of ground ginger.
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds


  1. Prep the sauce first by mixing all the ingredients together.
  2. Cut the steak into thin strips, and marinade with a fraction of the sauce whilst you cook your vegetables (or longer if you have time).
  3. Use 1 tbsp of the sesame oil, and fry the vegetables, but keeping each type separate as you’ll be adding each group to the final plate in sections. Move to a warm oven when the veg has softened, and the peas have charred.
  4. Cook the steak with another 1 tbsp of sesame oil by simply searing it on all sides. Move this to the oven to warm.
  5. With your pre-cooked rice, use a deep frying pan (again with 1 tbsp of sesame oil) and press the rice until the pan is covered with a layer of the rice. Put on a low to medium heat for 15 mins, and allow the base to cook and crisp.
  6. Just before the rice is cooked, fry your eggs.
  7. Turn the heat off the rice, and add the veg and the steak into their own sections. Leave an empty space for the eggs as well.
  8. Pour over the sauce and you’re done!!
